In Among Thieves, Nathan Drake traveled to the Valley of Temples in Nepal, looking for a certain temple related to the Phurba. The temple was thought to house the location of Shambhala and the Cintamani Stone.
After Nate, Chloe Frazer, Elena Fisher, and Elena's cameraman Jeff were ambushed by Zoran Lazarevic's forces, Nate and Elena made their way to a rail yard, where Lazarevic and Flynn were holding Chloe. With Elena's help, Nate boarded Lazarevic's train en route to the Himalayas.

- A bus from chapter 5 has a "Papa" logo, presumably a parody of Indian automaker Tata.
