Walkthrough by G&D Productions.
Swim left and get out on the ledge. Pick up a Torch, but be careful with it, there aren’t too many left J
Hop with the Torch to the block in the pool and walk down from the low side, swim to the blocks left and wade up to the bank. Ignite the Torch and then ignite a wall torch left of the doors. Go in (with the Torch if you like) and get over the cave-in.
Go to the back of the square, open the doors of the house there and go in. Lara looks right, but the item you want is in the left corner, the Valley Key. There’s a snake too, shoot him or just ignore.
The Tomb Secret.
Go out, left into a small garden and from the far left corner (NW) you can run jump with a twist landing on the steep sloped rock, jump again with a hard right curve and land on the roof (according to the builder you should be able to jump from SW corner of the garden to the low corner of the roof). Go get the Flares and then jump over to grab the roof of that Tomb like structure in the middle of the square. Drop into the hole in the roof to get Secret #1, a Gold Buddha. Drop from the roof, go to the W barriers and open them with the Key.
Go right as you come into the valley and go straight on the next yard, again straight into the building and left is a tiger, but also a lever opening a door in the other end of the yard. Go out, then right up the slope to the open door. Open the double doors ahead and inside go to the swinging spike logs. You’ll need a bit of luck to run jump through them and over the spike pit.
The Silver Key.
Jump to the opening to the right (N) of the cage and follow through to a lever opening up a door. Go back to the cage, jump to the opposite side and over the next pit to the last, go left there and in the blue light is a wall lever around the corner right. Barriers open up, go back and keep going right to jump to a wider ledge between the two pits and look up in the ceiling (a bit left) for a jump lever to use.
Jump to the end of this corridor and finally come to those open barriers. First use the lever left to open a shortcut to the start corridor so you never have to do the swinging spike logs again. Then go right and find the barriers you opened with the jump lever to your right. Grab the Silver Key there, turn around and go through the door you opened before (SA), you need a crowbar and of course a different key here.
So leave and go out N to the start corridor.
The Bridge, the Gold Key.
Go straight into the tunnel N, follow through to where you can jump through the hall to the other side and follow that passage to the upper level of the Valley where the Bridge is.
Run over the bridge and open the wood gate with the Silver Key, shoot the barrel in the right hand corner to get the Gold Key. Go back over the bridge to the ledge at the other end.
The Bridge, the Cavern Key.
From the left hand corner of the ledge (SE), a jump to that pillar next to the pool. Now jump S and a bit left to grab a rock ledge right of that waterfall. Stand on the lower tip and turn facing the tunnel the water comes from. Stand jump and grab the monkey climb ceiling, follow in and take a right to drop on the ledge. Go to that palm tree in the back and jump left over the river. Grab up to the rock on the right and hang left, back jump (down arrow) to a rock. Now turn left and hop over that ridge into a hole where you’ll find the Cavern Key.
Grab back up and from the rock jump over to the other side of the river, go back to the monkey climb and use it to get back to the Valley, turn left and drop onto the ledge. Walk forward to the left hand corner and look down (NW) to spot the Uzi ammo on a crooked ledge, if you want that; run down from the ledge to it to get to it, hop into the pool and climb out left of the waterfall between a rock and a pillar. Open that fence there with your Cavern Key.
The Cavern, the Gong Hammer.
Walk down to the Medipack and hop back to wait out the boulder, then grab it. Follow down and shoot two tigers, go straight and a bit to the right at the opposite wall is the Gong Hammer. Turn right to find some Mushrooms behind the spikes, then go to the E and get the Flares. In the NE corner grab the Uzi ammo.
To the Gong, Open the Temple.
Back out to the Valley and through the pool to the cave NE, left on the yard and into the building, through the double doors and left through the shortcut. Left again into the blue room and open the barrier with the Gold Key. Follow through to a balcony in the Valley, go right and jump over to grab that pillar. Turn left and jump to the next, turn right and jump to the ledge near the Temple. Jump behind the lion statue on the left, turn right and jump to the back. Go to the other end and jump behind that lion statue. Turn and grab the edge (W) and shimmy around to the right around a corner and at the next pull up and drop down behind the tower (W).
Follow through and use the Gong there, the Temple opens up, go back to the other side where you dropped down here and jump through the gap left of the tower to get back down. Go right around to the open Face doors.
The Temple, the Yin Yang Piece.
Enter the Temple and on a block left of the Buddha’s is a lever opening up the barrier to the right of the Buddha’s (NW), enter there. To the right is a push block in a pillar, pull it out and in front of the jump lever on the E wall. Use the Timed lever to get a screen of the ledges in the top of the room. Quickly pull the block once from the wall and then push it 4 times to the entrance and under the low part of the flaming walkway. Climb up turn right and climb up again. Drop off at the other side and now shimmy left or right all the way to the other side where the flames still should be off. Turn around and grab the other end and let go again to a jump lever so you can pull it. The trapdoors beneath opens so get into the water and get the Yin Piece (SW).
Get out and move the block to the lower part of the monkey climb SE, grab up and follow around to the Yang Piece in an alcove, drop down or use the monkey climb. Combine the Pieces to a Yin Yang Symbol and use the Symbol (W) to open the barrier.

Down again and swim S once more to end up in a pool, turn around and swim left to climb out at the dark block.
Push Puzzle to drop the Ball.
There’s a statue that has to go up to the others left. To the right of it is a raising floor, acting as an elevator when you step on. Push the statue to the elevator, step on the elevator and pull the statue on it Now move the statue onto the yellow wall next to the elevator. Then move 3 the blocks (in a N-S line) against the wall to pull/push the statue to the empty corner of the N blocks, move the blocks around when needed.
Raising blocks go up, hop back and jump grab up to the first block, run left onto the second and grab up left to the rock ledge above. Use a lever in the corner to release the Ball and dive down after it. Swim to the far right corner and climb out.
A Bunch of Tigers and Pistols.
Slide down, go to a lever straight ahead and pick up the Uzi ammo and then save before pulling the lever. Tigers come out of the opened barriers, kill them all and in the first opening, right of the lever (NW) are Mushrooms. The gate left has a timed lever for a raising block to get out of this place later, so ignore for now. The second opening in the S wall has a lever opening a lattice gate and Flares, use the lever. Third opening S has Flares, the straight opposite opening N has another lever for the timed exit blocks, so ignore too for now. Go into the middle opening N and through the lattice gate you opened.
UW Maze, the Graveyard Key.
Around the corner on the right are also Flares. Dive in the pool, roll and swim left (W) around the corner and pull the chain (#1, screen of a door), swim out right and back up right for air. Swim in again and keep going down right (E) and then up to find a small gap in the right hand (W) wall, the one with a different texture. Go in and left to the next chain (#2, door opens up). Turn and swim out and left down the ramp, around a corner and then straight up before the tunnel where you see a door ahead. Climb out to get air and also the Uzi’s from the floor of this room.

Turn and swim back down to the bottom, take a right and immediately a left, follow through to where that gate opened to get the Graveyard Key.
Swim back to the pool and get out, go back to where the tigers were and into the opposite right hand opening, save at the lever. Pull and back flip roll while the camera shows the block, run out and diagonally to the last opening (NE), throw the lever there and side flip right, run out and jump onto the lower block next to the ramp, hop onto the next and jump out of this place.

Get back down and into that opened grave (SE). Drop down into the Dark Crypts. In the “entrance” walk forward to a larger room (Main room). There are a bunch of barriers here that won’t open for you although you can see all kinds of nice things behind them. To the left of you, you can see a timed lever for a block in that room, that’s for later as we need two more blocks to get to that raising block and the crawlspace beyond that in time.
Turn right and go into the opening, go right and left, then climb up right into a crawlspace, turn around and climb backwards into the water, follow through and climb out left. In the next corridor is a croc to the right, shoot that and look up right for an alcove with a lever (1) opening a barrier in the entrance. Jump down and go around the corner and climb the block on the right.
Throw a lever and a block goes up in the Main room below, drop out (S) onto a push block and pull it onto the central floor, straight in front of the timed lever in the entrance and push it against the deeper part at the entrance.
Get back into the entrance, into the second right (opened by lever 1) and go right around the corner, in the back climb up right and use the lever, drop out onto the push block pull it 5 times and push it once N, so you can do curved jumps to the raising block.
Go to the lever, pull and turn right, do curve running jumps over the blocks to the raising block and then to the crawlspace ahead.
The Temple Key.
Follow the crawlspace and drop into a flooded room. Wade out, get into the crawlspace (W) and come to a cave with a building behind the rocks. Go up right and hop through the gap to climb up over the ridge to the building. To the right is a plant covered wall, climb that to the ledge on the right. From the ledge jump to the roof of the structure and go to the right hand back corner, where you’ll find the Temple Key. Get back down and open the Temple.
Inside go left onto the alcove ledge and look on the central pillar for a jump lever you have to use to open the barrier. Go in and turn right at the trench, check the health and run in so you’ll slide backwards. Just slide, don’t grab the edge. Bounce forward from a slope and then grab the lower slope. (Drop to grab a bit lower so you can) Shimmy right and drop to the blocks below. Get the Medipack and make your way down, go into the wide corridor and shoot the tigers. The second alcove right has a lever opening the gate ahead, go through and swim through to a corridor with a spike wall.
Spike Wall, Pushing It.
Get out and go left through the bypass and go out left, a flyby shows two gaps in the wall, DO NOT touch the floor there, jump over or the spike wall will start.

Room with the Wooden Platforms, the Silver Key.
Go to the S side and grab up to a pillar, jump from pillar to pillar to get to an alcove N, jump out left to the alcove E. At the end is a lever; this raises a block on the right and down. Turn to the right, jump and grab the wooden platform ahead, go to the other side of this walkway and turn to the right and jump up and grab the walkway there. Just drop to the wooden walkway below and pull up to get the Silver Key and drop down in the pool, make your way back up to the upper wooden platform.
Climb out and in the SE corner is that block, so you can climb up and jump to the wooden walkway again. Jump up again to the next one, loop around right and in the opening of the balustrade jump up to the stone walkway. Open the gate with the Silver Key.
Use the lever you find in there to open up another barrier on top of the Torch room. Swim back to the Torch Room. In the pool and swim in straight, a bit up and take the right and climb out.
Head into the cell in the NW and then left into the passage in the corner. Follow the passage and grab up; you’ll end up on the roof above the Torch wall. Left and right are the two barriers you lowered.
N: At the end of the passage, drop down, go to the cell and open the barrier, go get a burning Torch and go back inside. Ignite the wall torch and get a screen of the Torches we lit already. Go N into the passage you came from before and hop onto the ledge in the back, drop the Torch on it. Next to this ledge is a lever, throw that to bring the Torch up. Go back to the Torch room, into the NW cell and up to the roof again. Into the N passage and get the Torch and head into the S side, go left and stand on the ledge in front of that gap in the wall (two steps back from the gap) and throw the Torch through it.
On the opposite wall (W) is a lever on a hill, use that to open the last cell. Get back down to the pool below, climb out W, get another Torch and ignite it. Go into the SW cell (near the torches on the floor) ignite the wall torch on the right. Throw the Torch down and go into the pool. Swim into the tunnel S once more and take a right, up into the cell you threw the Torch in. Ignite the wall torch and the barrier at the 4 torches finally opens. No easy exit, so swim back to the pool and go out W through the new passage. Crawl through and pick up the Note: “Checkmate in Two”.
A Game of Chess.
In the next room the flyby will stop at the black square in front of the entrance, push the pawn (bell) left of that square once forward and now hop your way diagonally over (only) the black squares to the NE and you’ll see the trapdoor in the previous room open up.
Back over the black squares and out of the room, drop through the open trapdoor. Follow through to where you can use the 4 Gold Buddha’s (if you found them) to get the Quad. With the quad you can go up the steep slope E and get the ultimate Secret reward, the Reliquary Tower Artefact. The level ends.
Without the Buddha’s, go into the passage left of that steep slope and the level ends there
