Camps (5)

The Mountain Village has 2 base camps and 3 day camps, of which 2 belong to the Secret Tombs.
  • Village Plateau - Base Camp where Lara meets Roth for the first time, wolf attack.
  • Village Overlook - Base Camp where Lara regroups with Roth after the plane comes down.

Documents (7)

  • Ambassador: Discoveries - When you head up the waterfalls and reach the pool where the upper waterfall gathers before falling down again, get into the right hut. The document, part of the "Ancient Scrolls", lies on the table. 53N 71481 UTM 3416192
  • General: The Oath - From the Village Overlook base camp, head downwards and use the death slide to reach the hut below. Inside you will find a wooden blockade you can shoot using the shotgun. This Ancient Scroll lies on the table behind it.
  • Ambassador: Dark Tidings This document is in the area with the many single high platforms, near the Hall of Ascension and the smoke beacon of the co-pilot. It is on the platform from where you reach the blue beacon. 53N 712512 UTM 3416189
  • Hoshi: Answering the Call - In the area with the many single high platforms, where there is also the Hall of Ascension secret tomb, and the blue smoke beacon. Get from the Hall of Ascension down to the Illumination shrine on the left and get further down to the left to this platform with a roof. 53N 712519 UTM 3416199

Relics (6)

Note: We might have gotten the names mixed up in the Xbox version, or they are different from the PS3 version. The names for the PS3 version are correct. If you have any insight into this situation, feel free to e-mail me at: jana AT tombraidergirl.com or to comment in our forums.
  • Silver Flask This relic, part of the Semper Fi, is hidden inside the large wooden house. If approached from the south, your destination is on the level above the cellar chamber. If approached from the north, you are on the right level. From inside the house you have to get all the way down using the inner staircase, but don't leave the house via any outside staircases. The correct level can be identified by the stone floor. The box with the relic is in the west-facing part of the house, in a dark corner, next to a broken cupboard. 53N 712457 UTM 3416170
  • On Xbox: Dried Gobo Root on PS3: Yagen(!) This relic is located in a hut by the waterfall. You need to do some climbing with your axe to reach the level above the wooden bridge. (Or get here at a later point from above, coming from the area with the Hall of Ascension and the many single high platforms.) It is where the waterfall has build a little pool before continuing downhill and there are two huts. Get to the large hut on the left. Get behind it, to its right side to climb. (Or axe climb up to the shrine.) Get up to the level opposite the shrine. The box with this Kanpo Herb is just inside. (Do not forget the eggs on the roof.)
  • [***]From the Village Overlook base camp, head downwards and use the death slide to reach the hut below. Just inside on the table is the relic box.
  • USMC Dogtags Before you reach the Hall of Ascension climb down instead of using the rope to get up to the secret tomb (or if coming from the tomb, head right and climb down). Dirctly beneath the secret tomb's entrance, right of the stream, is a little shrine holding this relic box. 53N 712498 UTM 3416201
  • on Xbox: Medicinal Herb Vial on PS3: Dried Gobo Root(!) This relic is found underneath the large wooden house, inside a little cellar. If you appraoch it from the Village Plateau base camp, you will find that just past the shrine (Illumination challenge) there is a closed wooden door with rope attached. With the right gear equipped you can pull it open to find the relic, as well as arrows and a box with salvage inside. The relic, which is part of the Kanpo Herbs, is on the table on the left. 53N 712463 UTM 3416168

GPS Caches (15)

Please note that the caches do not have names, the names listed here were picked by us, as a gag. The numbers behind it are difficulty and terain ratings like is customary for geocaches in the real world, again picked by us.
  • This GPS Cache lies in the entrance of the Secret Tomb "Tomb of the Unworthy", near the entrance of the wolf's den, just right of it, underneath the wooden bridge, at the foot of the waterfall. 53N 712478 UTM 3416187
  • Slippery When Wet (2/3,5) - From the Village Plateau base camp get into the water. Wade towards the waterfall and find the GPS Cache on the left side, within the foamy water. 53N 712476 UTM 3416169
  • Tomb Stones (2,5/1,5) - Get into the area north of the large wooden house. On the stone ledge there you will find a large collection of tomb stones, the cache lies in a shrubbery near the left end.
  • Village Vista #1 (3/3) - For this GPS Cache get onto the roof of the large wooden house, where you can find the eggs and jump over onto the ledge at the steep cliff wall in the west.
  • Village Vista #2 (1,5/4) - From the cache we named Village Vista #1, use the shotgun to blast through the barred side-wall of the wooden balcony in the cliff. Cross it and blast the side-wall opposite too. Jump down onto the roof below to collect this cache. (Alternatively: Head up the older plane wreck, use the axe to climb the walls, cross the bridge - basically get to the wolf den - get to the edge and jump down to the hut's roof below on the right. - Not sure if you survive if you don't have the "Climber's Agility" skill.) 53N 712462 UTM 3416182
  • Plane Crash View - Starting of from the Village Plateau base camp, head up the scar left by the newly arrived plane, to reach the upper level of the Mountain Village, where the tail of the plane crashed. Here head into the passage between the two huts and wall scramble up to the shrine in the NW corner. (Like for one part of the Illumination challenge.) From here continue up the stone stairs to a hut. On the other side of it, behind the tree is the next GSP Cache. 53N 712452 UTM 3416151
  • - This GPS cache is found when climbing up the waterfall. It is above the little pool on mid-level, on the roof of the right hut. 53N 712482 UTM 3416193
  • - After leaving the Hall of Ascension, shoot a Rope Arrow towards the platform down to the south-east, the middle of the three, without hut. (This is near the smoke beacon if you are still within the story. - You can also get to the "Illumination" statue down on the left first and then get to the other platform from there.) Simply collect the cache from the ground. 53N 712506 UTM 3416196

Secret Tombs (2)

Challenge: Illumination (10)

The Illumiation challenge requires you to light up 10 statues throughout the Mountain Village.
  1. The first shrine for this challenge can be found not far from the Village Plateau base camp. It is located in the middle of the village square on the same level.
  2. This statue can be found in the area with the large waterfalls. When you have gotten the climbing axe and are heading up, this shrine can be found just above the pool with the two huts. It is on the left side, (where there is also a relic in the left hut and some eggs on the roof of the hut). You can reach it by using the axe in the cliff wall or by jumping over here from the upper chamber of the left hut. (Or if you climbed up on the right side of the waterfall, jump onto the ledge within the waterfall and walk across the wooden beam.) If you don't have the ability to create fire, you can find a lantern over on the right side. (You can also return here if the door above has been opened, from the area with the Hall of Ascension.) 53N 712472 UTM 3416201
  3. From the Village Overlook base camp head down the death slide, head up the stairs and find the shrine at the top. 53N 712464 UTM 3416189
  4. From the Village Overlook base camp head down the death slide, head up the stairs and past the shrine there. Use the death slide to arrive at the hut below. Get up into the hut and from there jump over to the ledge with the next shrine. 53N 712482 UTM 3416183
  5. Before you reach the Hall of Ascension, after descending from the Village Overlook and doing some climbing, you will find a passage on the left, which will also lead back to the waterfall area. (You can also reach this from the waterfall area by stepping through the opened door up on the right - once this has been opened later throughout the game.) It's inside the passage. 53N 712487 UTM 3416195
  6. After leaving the Hall of Ascension, shoot a Rope Arrow at the arch to the left and slide down. (This is basically on the way to the smoke beacon if you are still within the story.) 53N 712508 UTM 3416203
  7. Also after leaving the Hall of Ascension (you can either get to the first statue left of it, then get to the cache a little to the right and then to the platform further right or:) attach your rope to the pillar of the rightmost-platform, which is also the highest. Slide over and head around to find the statue. 53N 712502 UTM 3416186
  8. After the plane has crashed, starting of from the Village Plateau base camp, head up the scar left by the newly arrived plane, to reach the upper level of the Mountain Village, where the tail of the plane crashed. Here head into the passage between the two huts and wall scramble up to the shrine in the NW corner. 53N 712454 UTM 3416152
  9. From the Mountain Descent day camp, step into the steam and wade over to the left, to find the shrine. 53N 712521 UTM 3416191
  10. From the Mountain Descent day camp, attach a rope to the pillar up left on the other side of the stream. Follow the path around the rock. Jump onto the arch and walk across to the other side. Up the stairs is the next shrine. 53N 712498 UTM 3416185

Challenge: Egg Poacher (5)

The Egg Poacher challenge requires you to find 5 eggs.
  1. Get into the large wooden house. Run up the sets of stairs as far as you can. There step out onto the balcony facing south. There turn towards the steep cliff wall on the right and jump up to the roof. Pull up. Head over to the right and onto the lower roof at the back. The nest of eggs rests there. It's at 53N 712458 UTM 3416172.
  2. When in the area with the waterfalls, climb up to the left hut (near the relic and the shrine for "Illumination"). From the crate outside the hut, just next to the relic, wall scramble up to reach the roof. The eggs are just sitting there. 53N 712471 UTM 3416197
  3. After leaving the Hall of Ascention, shoot a Rope Arrow at the arch to the left and slide down. (There is also a Statue here for the Illumination challenge.) Drop down to the lower ledge. 53N 712509 UTM 3416202
  4. Also after leaving the Hall of Ascension attach your rope to the pillar of the rightmost-platform, which is also the highest. Slide over and head around to find the statue for Illumination. Then use your rope to get down to the platform in the north-east where the eggs can be seen on the right. Jump over to the eggs. (This is also the platform with a document on the higher level.) 53N 712510 UTM 3416188
  5. Starting of from the Village Plateau base camp, head up the scar left by the newly arrived plane, to reach the upper level of the Mountain Village, where the tail of the plane crashed. Here head into the passage between the two huts and wall scramble up to the shrine in the NW corner. (Like for one part of the Illumination challenge.) Turn to the roof of the nearby hut and jump onto it. The nest is on the other side of the roof ridge, on the left. 53N 712463 UTM 3416153

Random XP and Salvage

If you need more salvage or XP, this list will tell you where you might find some more. Looting enemies will also help you advance, if you have the necessary skills upgraded.

Salvage

  • Inside the large wooden house, on the first level that has a wooden floor (2 levels are below that), find this door with rope attached. Pull it open to find salvage.
  • In the chamber underneath the large wooden house, opened with the *rope*, near the relic is a box with salvage.
