Head up the path past the
tree and kill the snakes. If you get bit by a snake you MUST
use a medkit otherwise the poison will slowly drain your
health until you die. You may want to wait until all snakes
in an area are dead before healing yourself, otherwise you
could waste valuable medkits if you keep getting bit. Head

A switch over by one of the snakes opens a gate in the floor
nearby. Drop through the gate and light a flare so you can
explore this passage. Get the Medkit and kill the snake that
guards it before exiting the passage. This next area has
some water infested with deadly piranha, and you might find
some things of interest over by the stairs.
It may sound crazy but dive into the water and swim QUICKLY
to the ledge which is covered by a few inches of water. Get
out of the water while you still have some meat on your
bones and head up the path and flip the switch to open an
underwater gate between a pair of submerged ledges. Dive
back into the water and swim through the gate. Exit on the
other side with piranha nipping at your boots.
A huge mound of dirt lies ahead. As you approach you should
be able to just make out a flat ledge in the pile which is
within jumping distance. Make this jump then walk around to
the ledge on the left then jump over to the stone ledge.
Walk around this ledge until you reach an opening by the
second waterfall. Enter and collect the Save Gem then do a
running leap out onto the tree.
Explore the branches for ammo and Flares then head back to
the main branch and do another running jump to the left to
grab and pull up onto the ledge. Another running leap takes
you to the waterfall where you can make your way up to the
second waterfall. Here you can drop and shimmy to the right
to find some Shells hidden in a niche. Keep crawling until
you are able to stand then do a safety drop to the next
Over to the left is a ledge you need to jump, grab and pull
up onto. Now crawl into the cave and watch out for a pair of
snakes who block your exit down the ramp. The next area has
an impressive statue and a stone block to the right that you
can pull out. Some Shells are behind it, so get them then
enter the opening behind the block. As you exit, another
statue comes to life, so run to safety. The mound of dirt
takes you to a stone ledge with a Save Gem on it. Keep
circling the room and use your Shotgun to take out this
After the battle is over, look for a hole in the floor and
drop in, where you will find a switch that opens a gate.
Finally, move the block by the switch and enter the next
area. The air is alive with poison darts, but this is Tomb
Raider 3 and Lara can CRAWL in this game. Quickly drop into
the nearby hole to get Secret #1; another Medkit, then get
out fast before the rolling boulder crushes you.
Keep crawling past the flying darts and collect the Shells,
Medkit and Flares before returning to the statue room. Enter
the gate then carefully make your way across the sludge.
Always keep moving so you don't sink. Head up the slope on
the other side then do a running leap to grab the next
ledge. Go down the passage to find and flip a switch which
opens the nearby gate.
Enter into the next room and quickly jump the swinging blade
then sprint to avoid the spikes moving in for the kill. Up
the stairs you will find a cage with a switch next to it
that opens a gate above. DON'T FLIP THE SWITCH YET! First
pull out the block from the wall then push it over to the
left then climb onto it and jump, grab and pull up onto the
ledge. Around the corner is a ladder. Jump and climb up the
ladder to find Secret #2; a room full of assorted items.
Flip the switch then climb back down to the main floor.
Now you can flip that switch by the cage then push the block
over so you can climb onto it and jump over to the ledge. Go
through the gate and dive into the water. Pull the lever to
open the next gate and swim through. Above you is a closed
gate so keep swimming until you reach a pair of levers. Pull
both of them to open the gate in the ceiling the swim up to
get some much needed air.
Jump into the pool and pull the pair of levers that are
opposite each other to activate the statues that will breath
fire. The remaining lever opens a timed door where you can
claim several items also known as Secret #3. if you look
closely you will notice hidden platforms that are floating
above. The fire should make them visible enough to jump and
grab onto the first, then over to the next and finally to
the ledge where you can flip the switch. Drop down and get
the Save Gem before running through the door on the left.
The gate is on a timer so be fast or you will have to repeat
the last part.
This long hall has cages at each end and the one right next
to you has spikes. Flip the nearby switch to open the cage
at the far end of the hall and start the cage next to you
moving towards you. Sprint down the hall past the open cage
and grab the Key of Ganesha. Go through the gate and wait
for the spikes to go past. When it is safe, return to the
hall and get the ammo and Medkit by the switch.
Head back to the previous room with the pool which is now
replaced with sludge. Climb the sludge and enter the passage
on the right. You should find some Flares nearby which you
really will be needing. Climb the stairs then retreat when
the boulder comes rolling at you and duck into the alcove to
the left. Start back up the stairs until you reach a pair of
gates and a hole in the floor. The path branches right and
left at this point. We will explore both but since the left
has an immediate trap, we'll explore the right first.
Going right trips the boulder trap on the left passage, so
flip the switch and enter the gate. Ignore the temptation of
exploring that hole in the wall unless you have saved
recently and want to see a cool death. Head up the passage
until you reach a large room with statues, a Save Gem, and
floor grates. Continue down the hall and kill that pesky
monkey who is running off with your Medkit. Finally, drop
off and hang, then climb down the wall to the floor
You should now find yourself back in the room with the dead
statue from earlier in the level. Head up the mound and over
to the ledge where you should find a pair of switches which
will open a gate below. Return to the floor and go through
the gate into the next room. Go past the pit and into the
next door where you will need to swim across to flip the
switch. Avoid the deadly fire of the statues and if you get
torched, just jump into the water to put out the flames.
When you finally flip the switch you will open a gate
underwater which you can swim through while making sure to
avoid the poison darts which shoot from the far wall.
Grab the Medkit from the shore then head to the other grassy
ledge where you will find a ladder that leads up to a ledge
behind you. When you get above the ledge, do a backward flip
onto it. Then do a running leap to the next ledge in front
of you. Jump to the next ledge then turn and climb the wall.
Turn again and jump onto the next ledge then turn to see a
ledge with a snake ready to strike. Kill the snake from your
current position then jump over to his ledge. Another jump
will put you in a room with a rolling boulder. Dodge it by
heading up the left past the poison dart traps. Crawl under
the darts and other assorted traps and get the Medkit on the
left before doing a running leap and grab to claim the Save
Gem in the alcove.
Return to the pit and jump down onto any of the corners.
Walk through the blades and then crouch and crawl through
the tunnel to reach a small room with Secret #4; some ammo
guarded by a snake. Drop to the water below and make your
way back to the area where you got the last Save Gem. A
moveable block in the corner can be pushed to reveal a
second block which can be pushed several times. You should
soon discover a hidden switch that will flood the pit with
water. Keep going into the next room.
A pair of boulders will start rolling towards you as you
enter. Sprint out of harms way and head off to the left
where you will have to jump across a pit full of spikes.
Look down into the hole and note the spikes on one side and
water on the other. Naturally you will want to drop into the
water and swim into the next room with more statues
breathing fire at you. You should now be at the pit you just
flooded so dive in and flip the switch to open the gate.
Swim down the passage to get the second Key of Ganesha, then
return to the surface and exit this area.
The next room has a pair of locked gates with a pair of
keyhole and you happen to have a pair of keys. Enter the
now-open gates and note the spiked ceiling dropping towards
you. Run to the wall and climb up the ladder where you will
find your next Save Gem. The block over in the right corner
is moveable and needs to be pulled out so you can climb on
and do a running jump to the ledge and the switch above.
Turn and do a running leap to the next ledge to find and
flip a second switch which opens the gates. It also causes a
pair of boulders to come rolling into the room which you can
easily avoid by jumping to either side.
Through the gates is a room with two paths, each guarded by
flaming statues. You can dodge the flames with careful
timing and use of the sprint run. Wait for the flames to
start to die out then sprint towards them and turn at the
last minute before they flare up again. You should now be in
the next room with another statue who comes to life as you
enter. Kill this one just like the last and when he is dead,
take his sword.
Climb onto the ledge with a multi-armed statue and the
second statue will come to life below. Kill him and take his
sword then return to the other statue and put the pair of
swords in his empty hands. This opens the exit from this
room. Enter the next room and take your pick of holes to
crawl through. In the next room, drop to the floor and go
through this room to the next where another statue will come
to life as your approach the center platform.
When he is dead you can get the Key of Ganesha from the
middle of the room then head over to the gate which will
open for you. Light up the place with a flare and sprint
into the room and flip the switch at the other end. The
spiked ceiling will start to descend, so quickly flip the
second switch to open the floor grate and drop in. Below is
the second Key of Ganesha and a gate which will open as soon
as you take the key. You can now return to the room where
you got the first key.
Head into the next room with the Save Gem floating in the
air and the pit filled with water. A very strong current
will try to pull you into some spikes on either side of this
room, so quickly swim to the left or right and flip the
switch next to the spikes. Swim back to the front of this
room then over to the other switch and flip it to deactivate
the strong currents in this area. You can now pick up the
third Key of Ganesha before swim up and climb out of the
Now you can head over to the wall with the three locks and
use your hard-earned keys to open the gate at the top of the
stairs. Climb the stairs and go through the gate to end this
