In the cut scene, Lara uses her camera and takes a look at the cliff opposite. While talking to Zip and Alister, she tells them that she cannot see any sign of the ruins that her father explored. Zip does not see how Thailand is connected to Avalon and Lara tells him that the myths use different names for the remnants of the ancient world and one of them is still alive. In their case, it is Helheim.
Move to the rear of the yacht and gracefully perform a dive into the clear blue water. Draw weapons (the Spear Gun is rather effective here) because three sharks are circling. For added amusement, detonate them with a sticky grenade. To perform this action you have to wait until they come close enough, then launch a grenade.
Now swim towards the flat ledge opposite the yacht and a bit to the left (as shown in this screenshot). Dive down and swim to the left to enter a small cavity behind the rock. Get the Treasure (1/30) and return back to surface.
Climbing up the cliff to the Treasure - (The following jumps until you reach the Treasure are shown in this page .) Climb on the flat ledge and walk towards the wall to grab the handholds. Head up and right until you reach the crevice. Jump to the right to grab the next handholds. Climb up, then press Jump while holding Up to grab the ledge running along the wall. Jump straight up to grab the handhold above and shimmy right. When you reach the end, jump to grab the handhold on the next wall to the right and traverse towards the cave. Drop down and draw weapons. Three spiders will attack, so kill them. Pick up the Health Potion and the Treasure (2/30).
Climbing up the cliff to the path that leads to the ruins - (The following jumps until you reach the path that leads to the ruins are shown in this page.) Once you get the Treasure, exit the cave and stand on the extended rounded ledge. Jump to grab the handhold on the wall from where you came and traverse to the left. Release to grab the lower ledge, then the handholds below. Jump to the left to reach the next handholds (above the flat ledge where you started climbing up the wall). This time move upwards and to the left. Grab the hadhold beneath the stone railing and traverse to the left. When you reach the end, jump to grab the ledge behind you. Pull up to hug the wall and walk to the right (Lara's left hand). When you reach the end, jump forward to land on the ground.
First path that leads to the ruins - Draw weapons and kill the two spiders that attack. When you climb on the ledge above, two more spiders will come from behind. Kill them, go up the steps and pick up the Health Potion. Slide down the slope on the right and, before reaching the end, jump to grab the horizontal pole. Swing and jump to grab the handhold ahead. Traverse to the right and jump up to grab the bottom of the steps. Pull up and go up the steps. Turn right and head up the steps.
Before proceeding, hang from the edge on the right (as shown in this screenshot). Release to grab the narrow ledge, then the wall below. Start climbing down and left. When you reach the corner, jump back to grab the edge of the small alcove. Pull up and pick up the Treasure (3/30). Make your way back to the path the same way you came.
Continue to the right and kill three more spiders. Turn around to face the way you came and locate the handhold on the right (see here). Jump to grab it, then jump to grab the ledge above. Pull up to hug the wall and jump forward to grab the handhold on the opposite wall. Jump up to grab the ledge and pull up. Walk along the edge and locate the big rock platform down on your left. If you look closer, you will see somethnh shiny. This is a Treasure (4/30), but the jump is quite long, so you will lose some health. Jump down there and get the prize. Jump down to the ledge where you killed the last spiders and make your way up as you did before.
Second path that leads to the ruins - Walk along the edge, carefully find your way between the plants and the rocks and follow the path on the right until you reach a small pit. Use the Grapple to catch the golden ring above (you can also launch the grapple while you are standing on the ground and start climbing up the rope). Swing and jump forward. If you accidentally fall into the pit, there is a stone a block you can climb and start over. Once on the other side, follow the narrow passage on the left. Crawl under the rock to reach an area with an architectural structure and four pillars.
Area with architectural structure and four pillars - Go up the steps and turn right. Break the rounded vase and pick up the Treasure (5/30). (The process until you reach the ledge above the pillars is shown in these screenshots.) Go left and stand in the alcove betwen the wall and the pillar. Perform the Chimney Jump to reach the handhold on the pillar. Traverse to the left around the corner and jump to grab the handhold of the other pillar. Shimmy around the right hand corner and jump up to grab the handhold above. Then jump to grab the architrave running along the wall behind you. Traverse all the way to the right and jump back to grab the handhold of the third pillar. Shimmy to the right around the two corners and jump up to grab the ledge. Jump to grab the ledge on the left and continue to the left. At the end, jump up to grab the ledge above and traverse to the right. Pull up and run towards the temple.
Going down to the river - From the ledge that overlooks the river, jump to grab the handhold on the left pillar. Jump to grab the handhold above and traverse to the right around the corner. Jump to grab the handhold on the pillar behind and traverse to the left around the corner. Release to grab the horizontal pole, swing and jump to grab the other pole. Again, swing and jump to grab the handhold on the wall ahead. Traverse to the right and jump back to grab the handhold of the pillar. Traverse around the corner to the left and release to grab the handhold below. Now jump to grab the horizontal pole on the left and traverse to the other side. Release three times to land on the stone block. Finally drop to the ground and pick up the Health Potion.
Riverside - Go to the other side of the area, away from the river. Two tiger will run down the hill on the right, so draw weapons and kill them. If you want a safe spot, you can turn left where the pillars are and climb on the stone beam (as shown in this screenshot). If you follow that way, a third tiger will appear, so stay sharp. If you do not approach this area during the battle, the third tiger will appear when the first two drop dead.
Once you are done, approach the low wall which is close to the hill the tigers came from. There is a rounded vase behind it; break it and pick up the Treasure (6/30). Go to the area with the pillars and pick up the two Health Potions; one on the left and the other on the right hand side of the pillars.
Climbing up the pillars - (The following sequence until you reach the Treasure is shown in this page.) Facing the way you came, climb on the stone beam and walk to the left. Jump to grab the handhold on the pillar and traverse to the left around the corner. Jump back to land on the small stone beam and jump to grab the handhold of the pillar ahead. Traverse around the corner and perform the Chimney Jump using the adjacent wall to reach the upper handhold of the pillar. Traverse around one corner and stop.
Notice the handhold of the pillar on the left. Press Left and Jump to reach it, then jump to grab the handhold of the next pillar on the left. Traverse around the corner and release to land on the stone beam. Walk to the other side and release to grab the edge of the beam. Traverse to the handhold of the low pillar and release to grab the lower handhold. Jump to grab the handhold on the wall to the left and traverse to the left around the corner. Climb on the ledge and go around to the right to get the Treasure (7/30) from the balcony.

Jump to grab the handhold on the pillar and traverse around the two corners. Jump to grab the vertical pole behind you and climb to the top. Jump to perch on the next pole and jump to grab the handhold on the pillar ahead. Traverse to the right and climb on the stone beam. Jump to grab the upper handhold of the same pillar and make your way back to the pillar where you performed the Chimney Jump. Traverse around the corner and drop to the stone beam below. Walk to the other side and jump to perch on the pole ahead.
Jump to grab the ledge at the bottom of the stairs, but do not pull up. Instead, shimmy right and pull onto the flat ledge with the vase (as shown in this screenshot). Break it and pick up the Treasure (8/30). Hang from the edge and traverse all the way to the left, passing the stairs. Pull onto the flat ledge and pick up the Health Potion. Hang from the edge and traverse to the right. Now pull up and go up the stairs.
Upper ruins - Crawl under the big branch and hang from the edge. Traverse to the left and jump to grab the next ledge on the left. Pull up and crawl under the branch. Draw a powerful weapon because as soon as you enter the area, three tigers attack.
[Note about the Headshot - If you have Training Text enabled, you will get instructions for the Headshot. If you learn how to use it, it will be prooved really effective in situations when many enemies attack together, because it is the quickest way to kill them. The Headshot works as follows: Shoot the tigers until the adrenaline meter (Lara's yellow silhouette behind the health) is full. With your weapons drawn, shoot or just aim at a tiger. Get close to it and press the Grapple button. Lara will jump on the tiger and a gray reticule will appear on the tiger's head. When Lara jumps off the head, a red target appears to the side. Move the target in the gray reticule and shoot. If you make it correctly, the tiger will die instantly.]
Detour for a Treasure - The stairs lead to the Temple, but if you want all the Treasures, you have to take a detour. (This page shows the procedure. If you are not interested, skip to the part of the walkthrough Entering the Temple.) Go up the stairs and climb on the ledge to the left. Follow the ledge and jump to grab the horizontal pole. Swing and jump to the opposite side. Turn left and go to the end of the ledge. If you take a look below, you will see a slope. Jump there and Lara will slide down and grab the edge automatically. Release to grab the handhold below. Traverse to the left and jump to grab the horizontal pole above the river. Swing and jump to grab the next pole. Swing and jump to grab the ledge ahead. Shimmy left, pull into the alcove and pick up the Treasure (9/30).

Kill the two spiders and go up the stairs. Kill six more spiders and drop into the pit. Six more appear, so take care of them. You cannot go anywahere from the left side of the pit, so go right. Climb on the ledge and approach the left hand wall. Jump towards it and press Jump again to spring off and grab the stone beam (as shown in this screenshot). Climb on the beam and go to the ledge. Break the rounded vase and pick up the Treasure (10/30).
Walk back on the beam and make your way across, jumping from beam to beam. When you reach the last one, draw weapons and kill the six spiders that come one by one from around the corner. Jump to grab the horizontal pole and press Jump to climb on it. Jump to the beam on the left, then to the one on the right. Finally, jump to the stairs and go up them.
As the cut scene unfolds, Lara enters the courtyard of the temple of Shiva. Taking out her camera, she deciphers some Sanskrit inscriptions on a pillar and understands that the place is related to Bhogavati, one of the Hindu underworlds. According to the legend, the place is guarded by the Nagas, the Snake-Men. She also recognises the statues from the far end; it is Shiva and his mistress Kali down below.
