Also in Borneo is Zoran Lazarevic, who is searching for Polo's lost fleet. After infiltrating Lazarevic's camp, Drake soon realizes that Polo must have fled to high ground, to avoid a tsunami. They discover an underground temple, filled with dead bodies and blue resin, as well as the Phurba Dagger.

Geography[edit | edit source]
Caverns[edit | edit source]
Located high up in a mountain, the caverns were last occupied by Marco Polo's crew, who had drank the resin.
During "The Dig," after searching through Marco Polo's journals, Nathan Drake realized that they had to head to higher ground. Higher up, Drake, Sully, and Chloe discovered some fairly small underground caverns. They found blue resin, which they used to light the way, and the Phurba dagger inside.
The caverns consist of three main rooms. One is the largest, which is littered with blood and human skeletons. The second is filled with barrels that contain blue resin. The third is concealed behind a damaged wall and contained the Phurba.
