In this Uncharted 2: Among Thieves guide, we’ll help you find the eight treasures in Chapter 22 “The Monastery,” part of the PS4’s Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.

We’ve organized our guides by chapters. To find the chapter name, press the Options button and select Load Game from the pause menu. The name of the current chapter (but not the number) appears on the bottom line of the most recent save in the Load menu.

There’s no map in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, so for each of the collectibles 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.

Tibetan Silver Earring treasure location

As the chapter opens, you’ll climb a cliff up to a staging area with several trucks and lots of boxes (and a few soldiers). Facing away from the cliff edge, look to the left. The Tibetan Silver Earring is over the huge doors. Shoot it down to collect it.

Ritual Crown treasure location

You’ll (try to) sneak into the next area across a broken bridge and through a pair of red doors. After that, you’ll have a big, drawn out firefight with a lot of soldiers. Don’t worry about the treasure until Elena gives you the all-clear.

Backtrack, and put your back to those first red doors. Head to the right past the burning barrel and drop off the edge. There’s a small red beam below you and to the right where you can grab the Ritual Crown.

Silver Official Seal treasure location

Deeper into the area where you had the huge fight, head to the machine gun emplacement (you’ll need to go this way to meet Elena). Look back toward the entrance, and then turn to the wall on your right. Use either of the door-shaped hole to hang over the river, and climb to the middle to find the Silver Official Seal along the wall.

Silver Offering Pot treasure location

After you and Elena open another set of doors, you’ll do a lot of precarious climbing. Eventually, you’ll spot Schafer and the bad guys crossing a bridge. Right after you spot them, Elena will take off up the stairs. When you jump the first gap, drop down to the right to find the Silver Offering Pot on a ledge.

Tibetan Turquoise Ring treasure location

A little more platforming will bring you to a locked door. As you climb and jump to look for another way around, you’ll work your way to the left side of the tower. The Tibetan Turquoise Ring is tucked under the small awning to your left. You’ll have to drop down to the platform below it and shoot it down.

Carved Wooden Ghurra treasure location

During your stealthy infiltration of the monastery, you’ll come to two large towers full of soldiers and a bridge between them. When your entrance becomes less subtle, you’ll end up in a fight as you cross the bridge. At the far end of the bridge, climb down on the right side and underneath to find the Carved Wooden Ghurra.

Bronze Tiger Bell treasure location

In that same area (the same fight, really), you’ll climb to the top of the second tower and use some sniper rifles to deal with enemy snipers and soldiers crossing a (different) bridge toward you. After they’re all dealt with, drop all the way back down to the bottom of the tower. Head outside toward the bridge — you'll be well below it.

You need to jump to the platform on the bridge support, but it’ll seem like it’s just out of reach. As you’re running, wait until Nate has fully stepped off the platform before you hit the button to jump — it’s a bit of video game physics trickery. Once you reach the platform, climb down both ladders and look up. Shoot the Bronze Tiger Bell to knock it loose.

Antique Bronze Lion treasure location

After the bridge (and the bridge collapse), you and Elena will head into the monastery. There will be a big fight in the courtyard, and then you’ll duck through another red door. A lot of climbing later will bring you to a hallway full of bad guys and a stairway that leads to nowhere. Handle the soldiers first, and then head to the far end of the hall. Climb the furniture to reach a platform above the doorway. Shoot down the Antique Bronze Lion from above the window, and jump across to collect it.
