Defeat the Cultist Warriors

While the cultists spread out to search for Lara you will obtain the photograph of the Stone Cup from the artifact collection "Path of the Stars" (7/8). Since you only have your bow during this fight, try to remain hidden from view and take down your opponents stealthily from the patches of vegetation. Take care not to be seen by the one who occasionally walks up onto the platform to keep watch. If you've been spotted, try to use the stairs on the sides to get some distance between you and your opponent. When they get close and initiate melee combat, don't forget to evade to get the chance for a counter attack. You can also hide at the vine wall on the southern side of the yard. Also use the explosive vases or Lure Arrows to your advantage, or turn fallen enemies into poisonous traps.

Find Jonah

After all enemies have been dealt with and looted, leave through the gate at the opposite end of the yard from the tomb (south).
Lara makes a promise to Etzli after handing him the leader's amulet, then she and Jonah set off to return to Kuwaq Yaku. En route they are attacked by a Trinity helicopter.
