It only seems so easy because most people complete another area first.
The game doesn't tell you the order, but it is the order in which events are listed in the menu.
...which I believe is different from the order that appears on the loading screen, or the order Impa tells you about, or the order King Rhoam talks about them in the cutscene, etc.
Either way, no. It is indeed way easier than the other ones. Getting to Rito Village has no challenge whatsoever (just getting past the drones on the way there from Central Hyrule, whoa, big deal), from there the quest to the Divine Beast can take under 10 minutes and only involves one ridiculously easy trial and an also ridiculously easy approach to Medoh, and then the dungeon itself is so easy most people I know did it in 15-20 minutes too. The mechanics are cool, but with the paraglider and the 30-degree turns it's just too easy to break the puzzles.
