Version: 1st draft Task:
  • Reach the temple
  • Get past the Trinity forces
  • Infiltrate the Porvenir camp
  • Investigate the oil well
  • Explore the Trinity excavation
  • Find a way to open the gate
Region: Kuwaq Yaku

Reach the Temple

Swan dive into the water.
Survival Cache (9/14): Not far from where you probably end up you can find a Survival Cache on the ground of the lake, very close to the crate with salvage, on the sandy patch.
Resources: There is also a vein with gold ore in the cliff wall on the right (east) and some plants around the general area, as well as a resource container with +15 XP near the bridge.
Swim over to the left (west), to where a Porvenir pipeline and a bridge cross the lake and swim past underneath it on the left. At the end of the passage dive down and through the gap in the wooden barrier. You come out at a Trinity base of operations.

Get Past the Trinity Forces

Try to remain hidden from Trinity view. Dive around and look out for enemies to grab from beneath the water, using the melee attack. If you are seen, dive around, hiding behind walls and under jetties until the enemy loses sight of you, then continue picking them off one by one in stealth.
Trophies/Achievements: This encounter is perfect for working on a couple of trophies/achievements. If you have, by any chance, already unlocked the endurance boost skill "Heart of the Jaguar", use it now to further your progress with the Made to Endure trophy/achievement, which requires you to perform (stealth) takedowns while the boost is active. The same goes for Sixth Sense, if you have unlocked the perception boost skill "Eye of the Eagle", or In the Moment, if you have unlocked the focus boost skill "???". You can use several boosts at the same time if you have the necessary skills and resources required. A minor hitch is that you have to get out of the water to craft any of the mixtures needed for the boost. Stealth takedowns will help you with Like a Shadow and disappearing after being seen with Last Known Postion. All these can be farmed here, meaning you can kill a couple of guys, leaving at least one, then reloading the checkpoint. All kills will still be counting towards the achievement/trophy even after reloading.
Once you are done with the combat encounter you will be rewarded with +180 XP.
Survival Cache (10/14): Dive down and stock up on medicine and focus plants. Then dive down underneath the second jetty, where you can dig up another Survival Cache rewarding you with +25 XP.
Document (9/18): Climb out of the water and head up the stairs from the third jetty. Turn left. On the table you will find the document End Times from the set "Trinity" (1/10). It rewards you with +25 XP. There are also resources to find around here.
After climbing the stairs, follow the walkways away from the water.

Infiltrate the Porvenir Camp

You will be contacted by Jonah.
Base Camp (5/5): Lara discovers the base camp Docks, the final of the five base camps needed in this region, on the left and obtains +25 XP.
Document (10/18): On the crate just beyond the camp, also on the left side, you will find the document Croft Report from the collection "Trinity" (2/10) and you will get another +25 XP.
Follow the path into the next area.
Document (11/18): Search for a stack of equipment crates near the back of the lorry on the right side. There you can find the document Site Scrubbed, also from the set "Trinity" (3/10) and worth +25 XP. And to the side of the lorry you can pick up a resource container with +15 XP.
Get to the mud patch and use it to cover Lara in mud, and make her harder to spot. Then climb through the opening in the fence into the next area.
Combat Encounter (1)
Another group of Trinity forces awaits you here. Use the mud walls and other hiding places to your advantage while taking them out, preferably without being seen. This is a good spot to work on the Marksman trophy (20 headshots) for a change, so get out your bow. The first two can easily be taken out with an arrow to the head. The next to are in each other's line of sight. But you can separate them by distracting them with arrows into a nearby wall. Once one has turned away to investigate, take out the other, then the one investigating.
Combat Encounter (2)
Make your way to the northern end of the area and get ready for the next encounter. Wait for the enemy closest to you to move to the left, behind the stack of crates, where you can kill him with a headshot with the bow, without his comrades seeing him drop. Next shoot an arrow into a nearby wall to separat the next two, before taking them out one at a time. Then take out the fourth and final enemy at the back.

Once you have looted all the enemies and collected all resources around the camp, get to the yellow Porvenir steel door. Pry it open.

Investigate the Oil Well

Enter and jump to the craggy wall from where you rappel down.

Explore the Trinity Excavation

Follow the sloping path down.
Document (12/18): In the next cave you can find the document Temple Survey from the set "Trinity" (4/10) on a table on the left. It rewards you with +25 XP.
Archivist Map: Then move over to the right where you'll not only find a resource container with +15 XP but also an Archivist Map worth +25 XP on a crate beneath the floodlight.
Follow passage into temple. Mural Temple of Life +35, Mam in alcove on the left. Run to the right. +50 XP
