Stand in front of the mountain and look around. Look for the place where you can find a large passage between two rocks - the same as in the picture above.
Go through the passage and move up.
The cave's entrance is behind the trees.

After that, you can collect the 3 gold bars. Leave the cave.
Where did these 7 fingers come from?
One of the statues has 4 fingers and only one hand. Look around the cave. You will find a detached hand with 3 fingers. This hand belongs to the statue with four fingers.
Thanks to that you will know which statue has 7 fingers.
How to reset the puzzle?
Reset the puzzle if you made a mistake. Approach the statues you have selected, and go behind them. You will find a button. After that, you can try to solve the puzzle again.
