We should note that a few things before we dive in.
A handful of chapters don’t have treasures. So those chapters are missing from this guide because, well, there’s nothing to write about in them.
Also, there’s no map in Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, which makes pinpointing the location of each treasure more difficult than it otherwise would be. So, for each of the treasures below, we used photo mode to zoom out and give you some context surrounding the treasure locations. Use the images to make sure you’re in the right area and the added arrows to help you find your way.
Table of contents
We’ve organized our treasures guide based on the game’s chapters. To find out what Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune chapter you’re in, press the Options button and select “Load Game” from the pause menu. The name of the chapter (but not the number) appears on the bottom line of the Load menu’s most recent box. (You’ll only see one box unless you’ve manually saved.)

Chapter 2 “The Search for El Dorado” treasure locations
There are six treasures in Chapter 2 “The Search for El Dorado.”
Silver Mosaic Inca Earring treasure location
Shortly after the chapter starts, you’ll hop across a couple rocks and spot a waterfall. As soon as you see it, look along the left side of the area for the Silver Mosaic Inca Earring.
Jeweled Silver Monkey treasure location
In the ruins shortly past the waterfall, use the ledge on the left to climb up. Cross the fallen pillar, and jump to the column on your left for the Jeweled Silver Monkey.
Decorated Gold Ring treasure location
Underground, follow the path forward to the chasm you’ll need to find a way across. Before crossing, follow the edge left, and you’ll see the Decorated Gold Ring behind the pillar.
Silver Llama treasure location
Once you solve a puzzle by pushing four symbols in order and open the gate for the water by pushing a block below ground, you’ll drop into the water. When you crawl out, watch for the Silver Llama behind a column of rock along the right wall.
Golden Inca Cup treasure location
When you find where the gold statue used to be, turn around. Facing the door you just came through, look for the Golden Inca Cup in the far right corner (near the door).
Silver Turtle treasure location
Back outside, use the rocks to climb on top of the pillars. Jump across them to find the Silver Turtle.
Chapter 3 “A Surprising Find” treasure locations
There are two treasures in Chapter 3 “A Surprising Find.”
Gold Tairona Pendant treasure location
When the chapter starts, you’ll be next to the U-boat, the waterfall, and a cliff. Your first task will be to climb the cliff. Near the top, watch for a ledge you can follow to the right. Shuffle over and climb up for the Gold Tairona Pendant.
Gold and Turquoise Inca Earring treasure location
After you climb back down and find yourself on the U-boat’s deck, run around the conn tower. You’ll find the Gold and Turquoise Inca Earring at the very tip of the bow.
Chapter 4 “Plane-wrecked” treasure locations

Silver Inca Figurine treasure location

Silver Fish Charm treasure location
When you shoot the lock and kick open the gate, you’ll continue forward to a waterfall and small pond. Look to the left of the pond for the Silver Fish Charm.
Gold Frog treasure location
From that pool, you’ll climb up a cliff toward another waterfall, and then have to do some rock hopping. When you leap across the river, stop before you cross the first log. Look to your right for the Gold Frog.
Intricate Gold Ring treasure location
Not long after that, you’ll drop into an arena and face several waves of gun-toting enemies. On your way out, look along the ledges above where you first entered for the Intricate Gold Ring.
Patterned Silver Ring treasure location
After grabbing the Intricate Gold Ring, you’ll kick through a gate, and fight your way through two more ruined rooms. As you climb out of the second room, you’ll find the Patterned Silver Ring to the left of where you entered.
Golden Jaguar treasure location
After that escape, you’ll head through a narrow canyon, and then have another fight. Once the bad guys have been dealt with, look to the left and up the slope for the Golden Jaguar.
Silver Inca Vessel treasure location
Once you cross the crumbling bridge and climb up the waterfall (and shoot more bad guys), you’ll come to a ledge where you have to jump up to a teetering log. Look below you and to the right for the Silver Inca Vessel.
Golden Toothpick treasure location
After you find the plane’s wreckage and retrieve the map (and fight off a few more waves of enemies), the bad guys will blow open a wall to reveal your path out. Just on the other side of the doorway, look to the right to find the Golden Toothpick.
Silver Bird Vessel treasure location
From the Golden Toothpick, you’ll work your way across the cliff face. On the other side, after another gun fight, look for a ledge of rock sticking out over the cliff edge. The Silver Bird Vessel is hidden under the edge of that rock.
Silver Inca Earring treasure location
Not long after that, you’ll maneuver your way through (yet) another gunfight and a lot of those pointy stick-spring traps. On the other side of them, when the area opens up again, loop to the left to find the Silver Inca Earring.
Chapter 5 “The Fortress” treasure locations

Strange Relic treasure location
Once you make it into the titular fortress (and back out and back in again), you’ll have a fight in a courtyard. When all the bad guys are dealt with, head up the ramp to to top of the wall and turn left. Hop across the gap to the roof of the structure you just fought your way through for the Strange Relic.
Silver Jaguar treasure location
Still along the top of the wall, continue around until just before you drop into the next area. Look for some rubble to climb that will lead you to another wall section. Look inside the … bartizan? bastion? Look inside the stone phone-booth thingy for the Silver Jaguar.
Gold Mosaic Inca Earring treasure location
Drop into the next area, and then look back the way you came. There’s a large gate blocked by some rubble. Scramble over it, and look on the right side for the Gold Mosaic Inca Earring.
Golden Spoon treasure location
After you climb up to Elena’s parachute, you’ll head back inside the fortress. In the hallway where you’re dodging machine gun fire, watch for a room to climb into along the right to pick up some ammo. Look in the corner of this first room behind the crates for the Golden Spoon.

You’ll need to climb the tower, collect the keys, and unlock the door with the crossed keys before you can find the next treasure.
Make your way through the hall, and clean up the enemies in the courtyard beyond (while dodging the machine gun fire from above). The Spanish Silver Coin is under the machine gunner on the left.
Silver Tairona Pendant treasure location
After you reach the top of the wall and work your way around (and stop off to turn that machine gun on the bad guys), you’ll go down a couple flights of stairs. At the bottom, when you see the gate and the stacked boxes, turn to the right to find the Silver Tairona Pendant on the ground.
Gold Llama treasure location
More shooting and more stairs will take you back outside where you’ll spot Drake’s Tower. When you reach the broken staircase, you’ll have to do some climbing. At the wall, jump to the plant-filled ledge to your left and scramble over the rocks. The Gold Llama is in the back corner.

Once they’re taken care of, head up the main stairs to find a winch that will open the portcullis on your right. Before you go outside, though, head to the left and loop back around to right above where you came in. The Silver Belt Buckle is on the floor in the corner.

A lot of stairs and shooting will bring you to a courtyard with a fountain. After the goons are dealt with, you’ll climb around the structure and blow a door open with some exploding barrels. Look to the right of the door you just opened to find the Jeweled Silver Cross in a small room.
Silver Toothpick treasure location
The next three treasures are all in and around the courtyard where you fight the snipers. When the enemies are cleared, head back to where you first entered (and found your own sniper rifle). The Silver Toothpick is on a platform behind you and to your right. Head back up the ramp and jump the railing.
Gold Spanish Chalice treasure location
Head back to where you entered. Turn to the left and run past the stone staircase. Check the back corner for the Gold Spanish Chalice.
Silver Coatimundi treasure location
Again starting from where you entered and picked up your sniper rifle, face the tree in the center of the courtyard.

Golden Cup and Cover treasure location
Inside the Library, clear out the bad guys and watch the cutscene. Use the statues in the middle of the room (turn them to face the direction indicated in the notebook) to open the secret doorway.
