Custom Levels

Sanctuary of Water, Ice and Fire

The Snowy Mountains 1

Snowmobile

The level starts when Lara gets out of the helicopter. Jump straight onto the crate and collect the red shotgun ammo. Then shoot the polar bear. When he is finished climb onto the other crate and pick up the uzi ammo. Note that this crate looks as if it can be opened. Get onto the snowmobile. Get up from the right. Apparently this was the motorbike which had it's sidecar on the left. Take the snowmobile into the cave opening and up the hill. After a right turn you will come to a deep pit on your left and another cave opening on the right. Take a good look. Above the pit is a bridge and on the other side of the pit you can see a ramp which can be used to get back to this side. Drive into the next cave opening. You will come to a pillar dividing the paths but they will meet again behind. Drive out onto the bridge on the left.

Bear and Secret

Take a look down to the right. There you'll see another polar bear. Furthermore there is a outcrop with a golden rose lying on it. The first secret! Take the Snowmobile into the next cave. On the left you will find a closed gate and a crowbar switch in front of it. Keep this in mind for when we got the crowbar later on. Follow the passage on the right and park the snowmobile at the pillar with the ice-plant. Behind it you will find a window-alcove. Jump into it to get some silver arrows. Then drive the snowmobile out onto the next bridge. On the right is our polar bear again. Kill the bear unless you want to run him over. You can not shoot it from behind the fence. Get onto the snowmobile again and drive it over the edge down onto the lower level on the right.

Secret 1:
Get off the snowmobile and search for a triangle platform on the right wall. With help of the little hill underneath you can jump up to grab the ledge. Shimmy around to the left. If you cannot make it past the first platform and your hands look as if inside the ice, pull up onto the triangle and hang from the ledge again. After a couple of turns you are hanging from a ledge above the golden rose. Drop down and collect the rose. Drop back onto the ground.

In the area on the right you can see a ramp, this one leads back to an earlier part of the level. On the left is a giant goblet. Run behind it to get some blue shotgun shells. If you run up the slope behind you will find a closed gate on your right. Besides it is an angel guarding another crowbar switch. On the left is a narrow passage way. Further up the hill you will find the entrance to a Temple. There is no way of getting in there. In the left corner at the foot of the icy steps the narrow passageway ends.

Snowmobile Jumps

Return to the snowmobile and take it towards the pit underneath the bridge you came down. Drive it at full speed towards the ramp on the right side. In order to make it get a bit of distance between you and the pit and drive the snowmobile over the little elevation. This will take a lot of practise. A much easier way of getting there is: Use the ramp at the other pit to return to the other side again. Turn left and drive over the first bridge again. From the second bridge you can jump onto the cave entrance. You will loose some energy but I found it much easier. Inside the cave turn left and on the right side you can jump over the next pit. Behind you is an opening in the wall, where you can climb back up. But this is just for exploration at the moment. On the other side you can take the snowmobile out into an area with a giant broken goblet.

Goblet and Swinging Blades

Park the snowmobile. Run up the stairs to get inside the building. Be careful when getting past the swinging blade. You can easily crawl underneath. On the block in the left corner you can find some Uzi Ammo. That's it for now. Step back outside. Now look to the right. There you can see a couple of snow covered rocks that can be climbed. Get over there and climb up onto the platform. Turn towards the goblet and note the broken part. Make a running jump towards the left of the gap. You will land on the goblet and slide down. Jump and grab the ledge of the cave mouth. Pull up and run down into the cave. The next level will load.



Holy Fountain 1

Graveyard

Run down towards the building and turn right. Collect the Uzi Ammo on the platform on the right. Continue towards the end and turn left. On your right is a sarcophagus. Keep that in mind for later. Jump up the stairs on the left to get out into a yard. You will find it's a graveyard. A skeleton awakens upon your arrival. Run quickly towards the smaller coffin and open it from the right to find a Grave Key inside. You might have to kill a bat on your way. Opening the coffin will attract another skeleton.

Goodies:
By picking up the key you will also move the sarcophagus by the tree down the stairs. Slide down there and climb the ladder down into the underground cave. Open the coffin to find the shotgun and some red shotgun ammo. Climb back up and return to the graveyard.

In the graveyard climb the stairs in the north-eastern corner. On the little ledge right of the stairs you can find more red shotgun ammo. Don't forget you can use the shotgun to keep the skeletons away and if you blow them down they might disappear for good. Another trick would be hanging from a ledge down into the yard, the skeletons might be fooled and will run down into the yard, wait for them to appear underneath you. This will buy you some time without loosing any ammo. If you follow the way around to the right you will come to a small steaming goblet. In that area a bat attacks you, get rid of it. On the pillar there is a key lock. Use your key there to move the sarcophagus down in the yard. Get back down there and drop through the hole in the ground.

Getting oriented at the Holy Fountain

In the dark underground passage you have to get rid of another bat. Follow the path towards the holy fountain. Jump up the stairs, you will not be able to walk up. Note that you will need two blue crystals on the eastern side of the fountain. On the northern and southern side you can see golden statues. And in the west you will find a staircase leading up to a couple of chambers. When exploring the area two skeletons will appear, try to get rid of them by making use of the shotgun and the fountain.

Goodies:
Run up the stairs with the little stream in the west. Run up the first stairs on the left. At the two crates turn left and follow the path to the next crate. Shoot it and collect the red shotgun and uzi ammo. Get back down the stairs.

Monk's Scroll

Follow the little stream that flows towards the fountain in the west. At the end is a tiny waterfall, you can jump through the opening underneath. Slide down the slope to land in a chamber with a scroll, some boxes and some bowls. Advance towards the pedestal and pick up the scroll. The inscription is:"One in ice and one in fire. For you to know which way to go. Place the crystals and take my key. And find my resting place to see..." Now shoot the crate on the single platform. Inside you will find the Crossbow. Now step towards the only standing bowl. Behind it is another crate. You have to shatter it. Take out your pistols and shoot while jumping up. When Lara comes down she will continue shooting even when she's under water for a second and the box will break. Now push the bowl towards the spot where the crate was and pick up the lasersight underneath. Combine Lasersight and Crossbow and shoot the grate in the north-east corner. Dive down into the passage. You will come to a little chamber with an underwater door. Dive in front of it and open it. Follow the passage out into the pool around the fountain. Climb out of the water.

Golden Lady in the South - Stone of Fire

Go towards the south and climb onto the platform with the golden Statue. You can push the statue into the alcove. Doing so will open a door below. Jump up the stairs. The door closes. Jump into the water. Swim towards the stairs and climb out. From the top of the stairs, take a running jump onto the next part. Run up. In the chamber above you can find a Stone of Fire on a pedestal. The Stone of Fire will be needed in Sanctuary of Fire. Run down the stairs and jump back into the water. Climb the first set of stairs again. At the top you can jump up to the ceiling and hold on to the bars there. Monkey climb along to the left. Hurry to get into the left corner, a bat will attack you. Above the stairs let go and kill the bat. Follow the path. Climb down and crawl towards the grate. Shoot it and crawl inside. Lower yourself backwards out of the crawlspace. Follow the passage towards the lever and use it to open a door which can bee seen through the bars behind you. Climb back into the crawlspace and drop into the water. Dive down into the opening and follow the tunnel. You will emerge in a chamber with a window through which you can look into the pool by the fountain. On the right is a bowl. Push it aside. Then climb the ladder in the opening overhead. Follow the passage out to emerge back at the fountain. Turn left and collect the blue shotgun ammo in the passage on the left.

Golden Lady in the North - Stone of Ice

Go towards the north and climb onto the platform with the golden Statue. Push the statue into the alcove. The door below will open. Step inside. The door closes. Here you can see a cross. Shoot the crate on the right and collect the red shotgun ammo. Climb up the ladder to reach the upper level. Shoot another crate and from that platform make a running jump towards the waterfall. Climb up to the right. Again turn right. After a few steps a white spirit will appear. Turn around and head down the stream, safety drop into the chamber below and run towards the cross. Wait till the ghost is gone, then climb up again. In the chamber where you triggered the ghost you can collect the Stone of Ice from a pedestal. The Stone of Ice will be needed in Sanctuary of Ice Picking up the stone will raise a block with a lever in the room below. Now shoot the crate and collect the blue shotgun ammo. Then head down again. Climb onto the raised block and use the lever. This will open the trapdoor under water and one in the right passage leading towards the fountain. You can climb into the passage to find that there is another door blocking the way. But there is also a trapdoor which is closed. Pull the lever again to close the first door in the passage and open the second. Then jump into the water and dive into the passage. Follow it to the end. You will end up in another chamber with a window towards the pool at the fountain. Go towards the gratings and shoot them. Jump up and position with you back against the slope. Jump straight up and press action to pull down the trapdoor. Climb up and step out towards the fountain. If this door is closed you need to pull the lever above the raised block again. Turn left and collect the revolver ammo in the passage on the left.

Route to Sanctuary of Ice

I suggest that before you take the next steps to collect the golden Rose, you walk up the stairs in the west and take a good look at the last chamber on the left. There is a waterfall. You can climb up when you jump up from the little elevation underneath the waterfall on the right. Try it to see how it works, then return to the fountain and continue. If you are not interested in the silver rose just go on from here.

Secret 2:
Run towards the southern side. On the right you will find another red grate. Shoot it. Crawl through to the other side. On the left is a sarcophagus with a lever. On the right is a small coffin. Note the golden rose up on the waterfall on the right. Go towards the coffin and collect the flares inside. Then go towards the lever and use it. By using this lever you will release a white spirit. Now you have to hurry to find a cross. You have seen one in the movie sequence. But you can also use the one by the northern statue. Crawl back through the passage. Run up the stairs and turn into the last passage on the left. Ignore the medipack for now. Stand on the right where the water comes down. From the little elevation you can jump up and reach the ledge of the waterfall overhead. Pull up. Run into the right passage and past the swinging blades. Stand by the cross till the ghost explodes. Then pick up the golden rose by the nearby waterfall. Run back past the swinging blades and shoot the crate. Collect the arrows and the shotgun ammo. Step back outside.

Climb down the last waterfall to get the small medipack. Climb up again and head towards the next waterfall on the right. On the left is another elevation, stand on the left end of it and jump straight up. Grab the ledge and pull up. In the little cave on the left you can find some grenades behind a rock. And in the cave behind the waterfall in front are some revolver shells. Climb further up at the waterfall ahead. Kill the two green harpies attacking you. On the left wall in front of the gate you can find a receptacle where the Stone of Ice belongs. You cannot use it yet, as there is a depression in front.

Goodies:
On both sides of the gate is a staircase under water. Dive into the passage there from the left. Pick up the arrows you find in the alcove and dive back out on the other side. When you emerge you will be attacked by another harpy. Kill it.

Take out the crossbow with lasersight and shoot the giant star above the gate. This will raise the block underneath the receptacle. Now use the Stone of Ice to open the huge gate. Step inside and run down the stairs.



Sanctuary of Ice

Bull and Crowbar

In front of you you can see a resting bull. You have to get his attention, but fist explore the area. If you turn left you will find a chamber with a switch on the right. You need the bull to activate this switch. Pick up the small medipack on the ice in the other passage. In this passage you will find a locked golden gate. You will need a key for it. Now get close to the bull, till he rises. Then run over to the chamber with the switch. Get the bull to push the switch. Stand in front and jump out of the way before he can squash you. The switch will open the gate opposite. Step through. Climb the stairs on the right. There you will find the snow-covered skeleton of a fellow explorer. He has left you a crowbar. Run down again.

Bull, Knight and Cathedral Key

Now run up the 4 steps towards the door. Open it with the crowbar. Step into the chamber and run past the swinging blade. On the left you can collect a large medipack. After collecting it, step out into the next chamber. You are now inside a temple. Collect the flares by the cross in the right corner and the grenades by the left cross. Then follow the passage in the north-west corner, that's left from the entrance. Follow it into the chamber with a steaming goblet. There turn right. In the next chamber you can collect some red shotgun shells. Ignore the passage on the left for now, and very important: Do not release the spirit there, or you might encounter a bug. Open the door at the top of the stairs with the crowbar. This door is behind the platform the bull was sitting on. Get the bull to follow you down and through the passage. If you encounter a bug where the bull will not follow you past the golden doors on both sides, it's likely you released the spirit in the passage above. Go back to a savegame where you didn't release the spirit. Get the bull to follow you into the temple. Here you'll find three switches he has to push. This will open a door to the room in the south-west. Follow the passage there. You will meet a knight in the second chamber. Pick up the Cathedral Key from the pedestal on the right.

Secret 3:
Now provoke the knight to destroy the cross in the left corner with his sword. Like with the bull jump out of the way before he can hit you. The destruction of the cross will move a sarcophagus somewhere. Leave the knight alone and return towards the temple. Run back past the swinging blade. Step outside and find the passage on the right, hidden behind the open gate. Follow the passage and use the switch to open the gates. At the end you have to shoot another red grating. Crawl out past the moved sarcophagus. Here you will encounter another knight. Get him to walk over to the sarcophagus to buy you enough time to open the small coffin. You have to open the coffin from the back. Inside you will find some crossbow arrows. After collecting the goodies, jump into the water. Follow the tunnel to find a golden rose underneath the ice. There is also a shotgun to find. Dive back towards the chamber with the knight. Climb out and crawl back through the passage. To emerge back behind the golden door.

Now get towards the locked golden door and open it with the Cathedral Key.

Inside the Cathedral

Step inside the cathedral. Here you can see two more bull switches, one on each side. The bull will arrive shortly after you. Provoke him to push all the two buttons to open the left of the gates. Step through. Run up the stairs and past the swinging blades. By the third blade you can find some shotgun ammo on the left. Pick it up. Run further up. Turn right to come to the upper level.

Torch - Melting the Ice, 2nd Cathedral Key

On your right is a crawlspace. Hang from the ledge and shimmy over. Climb in. In the chamber you will find a lever on your right, leave it for now. Instead step out into the snowy yard, this will trigger a white ghost. Quickly return inside and run down the stairs. There a fire ghost will be triggered. The two ghosts will finish each other. Behind the bared window you can see the first Silver Rose. If you examine the room outside you can see a key underneath the ice. Step back into the chamber. Climb onto the block and pull the lever. Turn around and step through the gate that opened. Jump over the first spike trap. Continue and jump over the second spike trap as well. Jump past the open door that is blocking your way at the back wall. Enter the passage and pick up the torch from the pedestal. Step outside again and jump back, past the door, onto the walkway you came from. Jump over the two traps to return to the chamber with the switch. Use the switch to open the door leading towards the burner. You have to put the torch down to do so. Light your torch at the burner.

Secret 4:
Put the torch down and use the switch again. Jump back outside. Jump over the two spike traps and past the open door to get to the other side again. Now run around to the left. Jump over the first spike trap. Then take a running jump from the sloped part just after the spikes towards the platform with the golden rose in the middle. Of course with the torch in your hand you won't be able to grab hold. Light the torch at the wall to shut down the spikes on the platform with the rose. Carefully put down your torch and collect the golden Rose. Then pick up your torch again and running jump over to the south west. Jump over the spike trap and return to the chamber with the switch. Use it again to open the door leading out into the yard. Pick up your torch again.

Step outside. Drop the torch on the ice in the middle of the yard. The ice will melt. Jump into the water and collect the 2nd Cathedral Key. Now get back inside and crawl backwards out of the opening. Hang from the ledge and let go to slide down. Hop down into the cathedral again.

Water Passages

Open the right Cathedral Gate with the key. Step through and run down the stairs. You will drop into the water. You will end up in a chamber with three sparkling passages. Swim towards the right (northern) one. You have to fight the current to get through. In the next chamber you can find an air hole. Climb out. Take care, in this passage are two spike traps. Get past the first one and after the bend you will encounter the second. Out in the open you will find a statue on a pedestal. Use the button underneath. This will drain the chamber below. Return to the waterhole. Take the upper/right one of the two passages. After the tunnel you will come to the room which is half drained. You will drop into the water. Find the underwater switch on the ceiling underneath the walkway. Use it to open the door blocking the vase. Pull out onto one of the icy platforms. Jump onto the walkway with a backflip. Now pull and push the vase between the two hammers. Collect another Stone of Ice. Before jumping back into the water collect the revolver ammo in the south-western alcove. Jump into the water and follow the passage underneath the walkway. Turn into the next passage on the left and fight the current to get through. Now back in the chamber from the beginning turn into the right (southern) passage. Turn left twice and in the last passage with the current again. Climb out of the water. Place the Stone of Ice in the receptacle. The door behind you opens. Take a running jump into the passage.

Mirror and Knight

You are now in a tiny chamber with a pillar, a ladder, a closed door and a door leading into a mirror room. Take a look at the mirror room. In the middle is an ice column with something to pick up, but you can only see it in the mirror. Step inside. You will find that a knight is guarding it. Remember you have to do everything the other way around, so if you want to turn right you have to press left. Stay away from the burner, in the mirror you can see that it's lit. Try to get to the ice column. You cannot pick up the item, which is the first of the two gems you will need at the fountain, just like that. You have to provoke the knight to shatter a part of the ice column. If you want a break leave the room. After getting a bit of distance between you and the knight approach the pedestal again and pick up the Frozen Will Crystal.

Secret 5: (SILVER ROSE #1)
Get outside and take a good look at the room. At the back wall you can see an opening high up in the middle of the room. The entrance is barred. Take out the crossbow and shoot the grating. Then run over there. Jump up and climb in. You are now in an underground cavern. Follow the path ahead and open the coffin. Inside you will find the grenade launcher. On the left is another passage. Follow it. Climb up the ladder at the end. Upstairs shoot the crate and pick up the blue shotgun shells. Then open the right door with the crowbar. Step out into another graveyard . On the left is an opening in the rocks. Climb in. In both direction you can find a pack of grenades. Crawl back outside. Pick up the large medipack at the foot of the ladder, then climb up. Collect the Silver Rose on top. Climb back down and get back into the chamber at the other end. Climb down into the cave again. Climb back into the mirror room. Get out.

Return to the Holy Fountain

Now you need to open the gate. Approach the ladder, but careful with the burner. Climb up. In the chamber above you can collect some flares and press a button to open the door below. Climb back down. Take your way towards the door. If you take the right way around to avoid the burner be careful, there is a spike trap. Step through the open door. Run up the stairs and stop at the top. You are now at the foot of the stairs behind the cathedral door, where you went down to get into the area with the water tunnels. Take a running jump to get over the gap. Ignore the crate, if you shoot it a fire ghost will appear. Head up the stairs and open the door with the crowbar. Step outside. Pick up the uzi ammo lying around. Step inside and collect the flares on the right. If you want some more revolver ammo shoot the box on the left or you will release a white spirit. You can get rid of it by returning to the staircase and releasing the fire spirit as well. Continue through the door and run up to the top of the ramp. Run up the stairs opposite to return to the Holy Fountain.



Holy Fountain 2

Torch

Run up the stairs. Run towards the waterfall and climb down. Climb down all the way towards the lowest waterfall. When you are down on ground level run towards the golden gate opposite. It opens when approached. Shoot the box to reveal a torch. Two green harpies appear. Kill them. Then pick up the torch. Now use the pile of gold on the right side to get onto the middle block at that side. Make a running jump onto the next block and another one onto the block with the fire. Light your torch. Now jump over the blocks all the way to the other side and light the candle there. The trapdoor will open.

Secret 6:
With the torch in your hand step out through the gate. Turn left. Turn left again to enter the neighbouring chamber. Step into the water and swim over to the opposite side.Lara will be able to swim with the torch. Light the candle over there to open another door. Before you step inside the passage drop the torch on the walkway, turn around and use the crossbow to shoot the crate in the water on the left. Collect the arrows and the blue shotgun ammo. Then climb the stairs again and step into the tunnel. Again take the torch with you. Slide down. Shoot the crate and collect the large medipack. You will emerge in another yard with two waterfalls. On the one on the left you can see a golden rose. Light the candle on the left side to open the next gate. Run and jump up the waterfalls. At the top you will find another swinging blade. Run past. You will be attacked by another harpy. Kill it. Then shoot the crate and collect the arrows and revolver ammo. Now step towards the edge where the water flows down. Take a running jump towards the other waterfall with the golden rose. Grab the ledge and pull up. Pick up the golden rose. Then drop down. Step into the passage with the golden bowl. Push it forward till it's next to the crawlspace. With a bit of effort, backwards is easiest, you can crawl past by using the crawlspace. If you don't want the ammo behind you can always push it forward once more. Crawl out on the other side to get into the area behind the bowl. Collect the shotgun ammo. Now crawl out towards the fountain. Return towards the chamber up the stairs on the right where you opened the trapdoor.

Jump into the water and dive through the open trapdoor. Follow the tunnel.



Sanctuary of Fire

Star

Climb out of the water. Collect the Uzi Ammo. Follow the path on the right towards the ladder. Climb up onto the second level. On the right is a closed door. Collect the Uzi Ammo on the left by the pool. Look down. You can see a passage with a lever. Take a running jump to get there. Use the lever. The firepod on the first level opposite will go out. Shoot the crate and collect the Uzis. Lower yourself onto the ground. Now jump into the pool there and collect the flares in the middle. Dive into the passage in the north. You will emerge by a temple. Lara looks up towards a star. Shoot it to open the door up on the second level by the pool . When you approach the stairs leading towards the temple two red knights will appear, one from each side. Kill them. Then run towards the left of the two statues. In a crawlspace behind it you can find a large medipack. Get back towards the pool and dive back into the other cave.

Above Waterfalls

Again climb the ladder to reach the pool. Step through the open door on the right.

Secret 7: (SILVER ROSE #2)
Turn left. In the corner you will find an opening. And inside the wall is a gap. Take a standing jump from the lower part on the left to get towards the gap. Grab hold. Climb into the gap and get out on the other side. Push and pull the burner to the other end onto the marked square. Keep in mind: You can stand behind the burner on the same square! When you have placed the burner on the correct square, the door will open. Run down the stairs and collect the arrows. Then push the crate in front of you twice. Shoot the grate on the left and crawl into the gap. Climb out on the other side and follow the stairs down. You are now in a huge chamber with lava and a couple of platforms with sarcophagus' below. In front of you is an invisible walkway that leads right to the pedestal with the silver rose on the platform opposite. Run over and collect the Silver Rose. Now head back till you've reached the ladder on your right. Take a running jump to get there and hold on to it. Climb down. Jump over to the first platform with sarcophagus. Open it and collect the revolver ammo. Now take a running jump towards the second sarcophagus. Collect some more revolver ammo from it. Now head back and from the platform with the first sarcophagus running jump over to the right to get some grenades. Jump back to the previous platform and then back towards the ladder. Climb up again. When you have climbed 2/3 of the ladder, the flower-markings give you a hint, make a backflip to land back on the invisible walkway. Run back towards the entrance. Follow the passage all the way back towards the place where you have moved the burner. Carefully drop onto the level below. There climb the ladder again and get back up and through the open door. Till you are standing above the waterfall again.

Using the Stone of Fire

Turn towards the waterfall in the east. Take a running jump to get to the platform right of the waterfall. Grab hold and pull up. Run up the waterfall. Enter the chamber and shoot the crate to find a bit of Uzi Ammo. Step back outside and jump onto the platform nearby. From there jump onto the first rope. Continue onto the second and then jump onto the platform with the receptacle. Use the Stone of Fire to open the gate below. Safety drop onto the ground. Approach the opened gate, when you get closer the blocks will start to move. A red knight emerges. Fight him outside. Step towards the gate again and run past the first set of jumping pillars just when they part. Repeat this at the second and third.

Lava Room with Ladders

In the next room you can look down to see a lava covered floor and a couple of blocks with ladders on the side and firepods on top. There are three passages below. One in the south, one in the north and one in the west. We are aiming for the western passage first. Go towards the left and jump to the platform with the crates there. Shimmy around the corner to get closer to the big ladder. Pull up onto the platform and jump onto the ladder. Climb down till you have the next ladder on your right. Climb sideways and around the first corner. From there (facing north) make a backflip and turn in midair. Grab the ledge behind you (facing south). Climb around to the left and use the backflip-turn in midair strategy to reach the ladder in the corner. Climb down till you have reached the next ladder on your left. Climb around the corner twice. And from there (facing east) make a backflip, turn in midair and grab the ladder behind you (facing west). Climb around to the left to get safely into the passage. Enter the chamber and jump over the lava filled trench. Pull the chain to raise a block out of the lava in front of the southern passage. Jump back into the doorway. From there continue onto the block in the lava with a running jump. The door here is closed but do not worry. Turn to face the northern passage. With a running jump you can reach the other side. Grab the ledge and pull up.

The Passage With Bell, Statues 6 Knights

You are now in a passage with two golden statues and a bell. On the left is a staircase leading up. And in the back of the chamber are two more passages. When you approach the statues two red knights will appear in the back of the chamber. Kill them. If you follow the last passage on the right you will come into a large hall with lava. In the middle is a platform with three mirrors and a sarcophagus with a key on it. You have to find three mappers to activate a light that will be reflected onto the sarcophagus. To find them return to the passage.

First Mapper, Staircase with Single Jumping Pillar

Run up the first stairs on the left. In the passage you will encounter a jumping pillar trap. Run past the pillar quickly. Cross the bridge. And run up the next stairs. In the upper chamber you will find a mapper. Collect the arrows from the pedestal. Then pull the rope to activate the mapper. Through the windows you can see some more mappers in other chamber. Get back down into the hallway. You can shortcut by dropping from the bridge. This way you will avoid the jumping block.

Goodies and Secret

Now follow the second passage on the left. (Right one on the western side.) You will come to a room with a set of jumping pillars, a double fire trap and again a set of jumping pillars. Watch the firetrap. Choose one of them and concentrate on it. Run past the pillar on that side as soon as the fire goes out and run past the last pillar when you get the opportunity. In the room behind you can collect two packs of Uzi Ammo. Return towards the pillars.

Secret 8:
Behind the right one you can see a passage. Run into it. You will now com to a lava pool. On both sides are closed double doors. They cannot be opened from this side so take a look at the pool. Take a running jump onto the triangle platform. And from there continue with a running jump towards the other "shore". If the platform is not long enough for you, include a little curve in your running. Open the coffin to find a golden rose. Now explore the northern walkway to find some flares and a small medipack, and the southern walkway to find some grenades and some blue shotgun ammo. A giant beetle will appear. Kill it. Then exit through one of the doors. You can push them open. Return to the stairs. Quickly run out from behind the pillar.

Run past the pillars and the firetraps. Return to the hallway.

Chain in the Giant Hall

Now follow the passage opposite (northern side) to come into the large hall with lava and a platform with mirrors in the middle. You can see that one of the mirrors is reflecting light onto the sarcophagus, that was activated by using the first mapper. Take a running jump onto the platform in the lava on the right. As soon as you've reached it you will be attacked by a giant beetle. I recommend the shotgun. Take a standing jump over to the block in the corner and pull up. Collect the red shotgun shells. Now take a running jump over to the red statue. Continue onto the next platform in the lava. Kill the two giant beetles. Now you are below the double gate, for which you will need the key from the sarcophagus. If you look to the left you can see a fire being emitted from the lava. Behind it is a small platform in the lava. Take a running jump to get there. Take another running jump towards the next red statue. Go to the end of the platform and face north. With a running jump you can reach the next platform. You can do a standing jump onto the next part where you will be attacked by another beetle. From here take a running jump towards the block in the corner. Pull up and use the chain to open the gate in the north.

2nd Mapper

Take a running jump onto the platform by the next red statue. Continue with another running jump onto the next platform. From here pull up towards the gate and quickly shoot the giant beetle. Step inside and climb into the opening on the right. Climb the ladder. Run into the chamber with the pyramid and pull the chain to activate the second mapper. Follow the path out and climb down the ladder. Return to the gate.

Mirror Light Key & 3rd Mapper

Look up. What you see above you is a climbable ceiling. Get onto the golden part in the corner and jump up to the ceiling. Press action to hold on to it. Monkey climb all he way out onto the giant platform in the middle. At the end let go to land by the sarcophagus. Collect the Mirror Light Key. Now locate the closed gate in the south and take a running jump onto the island in front. Climb up to the gate and open it with the key. Climb the ladder inside. After a while you have to leave it with a backsault. Follow the path towards another mapper. Again pull the chain. Get back towards the ladder and climb back down. When you look back into the main chamber you can see that three light beams are now active and that the coffin has moved. Look towards the left side. There is a rope hanging from the ceiling. Running jump towards it and grab it. Use it to jump onto the platform with the coffin.

Jump Switch, Fire Emitter, Pool and Timed Door

Now drop into the newly opened hole. Lower yourself backwards into the water. Dive along the passage. Turn left and dive to the end. Climb out of the water. In the next chamber you will meet two skeletons on the left. Use explosive ammo to get rid of them. On your left you can see a flame emitter. On the wall above it is a jump switch. On your right is a ladder and above it a rope. With this rope you can reach the switch. But the flame emitter will burn you. On the floor below you can see a closed trapdoor with a pool underneath. Run down the stairs at the back and push the door open. Step into the water. Look up to see the handle of the trapdoor. Stand under it facing north. Jump up and pull the trapdoor down. Get back up into the chamber and climb the ladder. Save your game as the next part has to be done quickly. Fill up your energy if necessary. Now face the rope and jump onto it. Turn towards the switch and swing over. Jump towards the switch and pull it down. You will drop through the firetrap into the water. Climb out of the water on your right as quickly as you can. Now sprint up the walkway and return to the ladder as fast as you can. Climb it. Upstairs sprint through the hopefully still open gate.

Lava Filled Passage

A red knight will come down the stairs. Kill him. A second knight will follow. Run to the top. You will come to a lava filled passage. There are some platforms inside that will enable you to get to the other side. In front of each is a fire emitter you have to watch carefully. Running jump onto the first platform on the right as soon as the emitter goes out. Repeat this procedure to reach the second platform. Enter the safe passage and run up the stairs. Push the door open. Run up the next set of stairs. To come into a room with a horse.

Knight on Horse

On your left is a pool of water. On the right is a low block with a burning candle on the wall, a chain and a pole. Climb the pole. Upstairs, jump up the hill and pick a torch from the pedestal. A fire ghost will chase you. Drop the torch down to ground level. Climb down the pole again and jump into the pool to get rid of the ghost. (You can also leave the torch up there, get rid of the ghost right away and collect the torch later.) Now drop the torch onto the platform underneath the burning candle. Use the chain to raise the block with the torch on it. Climb it and light your torch. Drop down and run over to the closed gate by the eastern wall. Light the candle there. A knight will appear and mount the horse. Fight him. Try shooting him from the side where he holds the sword. You can try shooting him from the raised block, but this might take a long time. You have to shoot him till he falls off the horse and then kill him like the others. He looses the Crystal Chamber Key.

Secret 9:
Before you continue enter the chamber the knight came out of. On the left wall is a movable crate. Pull it out. Then enter the passage behind. In a chamber with a plant and a ladder you can find red shotgun ammo. Climb the ladder. Follow the path into a yard with plants and a skeleton. Kill the awakening skeleton. Then collect the golden rose on the pedestal on the right. In the coffin you can find more red shotgun ammo. Jump into the pool and climb into the passage. Slide down the waterfall to return to the chamber where you met the rider.

Evil Thoughts Crystal

With the key in your backpack climb the pole at the back again. Climb one of the blocks next to the pole. Turn towards the pole and jump towards the platform above. Pull up and use the key at the keyhole. Then collect the small medipack on the higher platform in the north. Then run up the hill. Step through the window you opened with the key. Climb the pillar. Jump up towards the handle of the trapdoor and pull it down. Climb into the chamber. Push the door open. Follow the passage and slide down. You will come to another lava filled room. Behind it you can see a chamber with swinging chains and a pedestal with the crystal. Take a standing jump onto the platform in the lava pool. Take a running jump towards the opening. Pull up. Run past the chains. Like in the chamber with the first crystal you are in a mirror room and have to do everything the other way around. I recommend you run up to the mirror and take one chain at a time. You can use the look button here. Take the Evil Thoughts Crystal from the pedestal. Then you will drop through a trapdoor into a pool. You are now back in the chamber above the waterfall by the Sanctuary of Fire gate. Drop down the waterfall into the pool and dive back to the other cave. Climb up to the waterhole in the south and dive back towards the fountain.



Holy Fountain 3

Iced Fountain

Exit the chamber and run down the stairs to return to the fountain. Use the two crystals on the opposite side. The pool is now covered with ice. If you run around on the ice you might notice that in the north-east corner Lara looks down. There you can see the third silver rose.

Secret 10: (SILVER ROSE #3)
Run up the stairs again and jump through the little opening by the tiny waterfall. Dive through the opening in the corner. You are now on ground level. If you turn left you will encounter a shark. So instead turn right. After a few strokes you can see an opening in the ice above. Dive up. Swim further to the left to find the silver rose. Picking up the rose will open a gate towards the fountain. Turn around, careful the shark is waiting. Dive into the opening to catch some breath. Pull out.

Climb onto the railing of the fountain and kill the shark(s), if any are there. Then jump into the water and pull the lever under the middle column. Now either swim through the open gate (if you've collected the silver rose), or drop down by the tiny waterfall by the stairs in the west and dive through the passage. On ground level, underneath all the layers of ice, locate the open ground trapdoor in the east. Dive down. Climb out at the end.

Towards Snowy Mountains again

You are now in another of the chambers behind one of the windows in the fountain. Shoot the two crates to find red shotgun ammo and a small medipack. Now carefully slide down the ramp. If you are lucky you will land on a platform in the east and can collect a large medipack there. Then drop down and follow the stream. Slide down into the next level.



The Snowy Mountains 2

Water Tunnels

After taking a deep breath dive down into the passage. After the doorway turn right. In the next room you have to turn left. There you will encounter a shark. Swim past him and into the next chamber. Here you can take a breath. Climb out onto the platform and shoot the shark. Dive down and examine the door by the skeleton, this door can be opened from the other side. Dive back outside and turn left. Turn left again to come to the other side of the door. Dive back into the chamber to catch some breath. Dive back out through the open door and through the archway opposite. Turn right. In the chamber with the statue turn left. You will come to a chamber with three more doorways. Two ahead and one on the left. The right one ahead and the one on the left lead into the same passage. There you will meet a shark. You can also collect some revolver ammo in that passage. If you want to get rid of the shark first come back for the ammo later. Provoke the shark to follow you back towards the airhole. Climb out and shoot him as well. The shark might refuse to follow you through the door. In that case get him to follow you the long way around. Now jump back into the water and dive back towards the chamber with the three doorways. Dive into the left of the passages ahead. Turn left and open the underwater door there. Turn left, then right and right again. After a few bends you will come to another door you have to open. Hurry to open it and swim up towards the surface in the next cave. (If you cannot make it in time swim back to the airhole after opening the first door.) Swim towards the stairs, that lead out of the water.

Water Tower Sanctuary Key

A cut scene will show you a tower with water running down. Follow the path to reach the chamber with the tower. Jump into the water. Dive around the left side and climb onto the rock at the back of the chamber. Now you have to do a running jump where you have to turn while running towards the platform with the barred gate in the north east. Grab the ledge and pull up. Turn around and jump onto the platform behind you. Turn left and make a running jump towards the blue plant left of the waterfall. Grab the ledge and shimmy around to the left. Pull up at the end. Take a running jump towards the platform with the rose.

Secret 11:
Collect the golden rose.

Face west and jump around the corner to the right to reach the platform there. Turn to face the wall. Jump towards the platform there. Grab the ledge and pull up. Run forward and crawl through the passage on the right. At the end hang from the ledge. Shimmy to the right. Pull up into the next passage. Enter and crawl along to find a small medipack. Crawl back out. Take a running jump towards the waterfall slightly to your left. Enter and step outside to the east. Walk up onto the left ledge and from there jump up to the next level. Pull up. Jump to reach the pedestal and pick up the Sanctuary Key. The gate by the barred fence below opens.

Water Flowing Backwards

Jump into the water and climb onto the ledge again. Again make a running jump towards the platform with the now opened gate. Grab the ledge, pull up and enter the chamber. Run up towards the clock and press it. This will cause the water outside to flow backwards. Jump over to the platform opposite again. Jump over to the plant again. Take a whole way past the place where you got the secret, through the crawlspace in the rock and up the tower to reach the top again. When you jump onto the platform with the pedestal you will be pulled upwards. Pull up and jump to the side to land on the platform above. Jump over to the ladder and climb up. Turn around and take a running jump towards the small medipack. Grab the ledge and pull up. Collect the medipack. Jump back to the other side. Step through the gate and turn right. Follow the path to the other side. Climb the block at the end. Take a running jump towards the other side. Pull the lever. Then leave the block with a sideflip. The gate is now open. Step outside.

Back in the Snow

If you've explored the area before you might recognize the place. Shoot the bear running around below. Run down the hill. You will come past a crowbar switch by a gate. But using it now will not help you to continue. You will need the snowmobile first. Run down towards the giant goblet. Turn south. There is a gap and a ramp in front of it. Use the ramp to reach the other side with a running jump. Turn right and run through the cave to return to the beginning. Open the left crate and pick up the Nitrous Oxide Canister. Before you use the crowbar to obtain the Valve Pipe go outside, jump onto the crate and kill the polar bear. Now collect the Valve Pipe. Step back outside and open the other crate to get the Revolver. Run back into the passage. When you reach the gap turn right and enter the next cave. At the end turn left and cross the bridge. Run towards the gate with the crowbar switch. Open the gate. Step through.

Reaching the Sanctuary of Water

You are back in the chamber with the swinging blade. Run past the blade to find your snowmobile. Combine Valve Pipe and Nitrous Oxide Canister and attach them to the snowmobile. Then drive it over the right ledge of the eastern gap pressing sprint. Keep on pressing sprint to make it over the second gap as well. Now drive up past the goblet to find the gates you've came across earlier. Use the crowbar to open the gate. Drive the snowmobile through and line up in front of the ramp. If you jump into the water now you can find a closed gate in a passage with small medipack. Leave that for when the door is open. Press action and sprint to jump the gap with the snowmobile. Get of the snowmobile in front of the Sanctuary gates. Examine the pool on the right to get some blue shotgun ammo.

Secret:
Jump down in the water. In the area on the left you can find a deep shaft. Dive down and collect a small medipack. Then continue through the now open gate. Climb onto the block in the water. From there jump towards the big platform with the plant. Climb the ladder. Keep enough distance from the ceiling so you wont bump your head. Then make a backflip and turn in midair. Grab the short ladder behind you. Climb up and also climb the next ladder. Again keep enough distance and make a backflip to land on a triangle platform. Turn left and jump towards the platform there. Climb the stone steps. You are now on a ledge above the Sanctuary Gate. Carefully climb over to the pool. Collect the arrows. Now step out onto the ledge and make a running jump towards the balcony. Grab the ledge and pull up. Behind the last pillar on your right you can find another golden rose. This one is not counted in the statistics. That's why it has no number in my walkthrough. Now the quickest way down is going back to the opening in the balcony and jumping into the pool on the right.

Step up towards the gate and use the Sanctuary Key to open it. Jump into the water and dive to the other side. Climb the stairs. And run into the next level.



Sanctuary of Water

You have now reached the Sanctuary of Water and there is no way back. You should have three silver roses, otherwise you wont be able to enter the bonus level. Furthermore there were 12 Secrets so far, one wasn't listed in the statistics. So if the statistics say 11 Secrets you've probably got all.

Run through the gate on the left and view the cut scene. A waterskin will be shown to you. Start with the stairs opposite. Pick up the scroll Ahmet's Rule from the pedestal. It reads Kill me once for your desire. To see which candles will catch fire. Count them as you go by. And give the scales a second try. Ignore this riddle but you will see. The scales will not reveal the place to be...
