By far the most complicated of the Jungle Vaults to open is the door that instructs you to "... find … flames". Outside this hidden Vault door, you will notice a series of braziers producing purple flames. To open the Vault door, you must distinguish the correct flames and leave the rest lit.

The solution to this puzzle lies in a separate chamber. Directly above or below the Jungle Vault door, you will find another set of braziers corresponding with the braziers outside the Vault door. Take note of which braziers are lit, then go back and light and extinguish the braziers to match the flames you discovered in the other room.

Outside this Jungle Vault are statues you can interact with to open the door. If you choose correctly, the Jungle Vault will open. If you select wrong, you will get sent to the skies above the Vault via a rift.

There's no way to know which statue unlocks the secret Vault door, so take your best guess. If you're wrong, you can always go back and try again!
