You need to use the four levers again that you used previously, but now in a different combination.

I just stepped into the Celestial Mountains level but there are doors in the previous level (Search of the Monastery) that are still closed. Do we go back and forth between levels? Just want to make sure I haven't messed up somehow.

Yes, you can go back and forth between the two levels, but going back to level 1 is really required only for placing the fourth Mask. Or to put it differently, level 2 is all about acquiring the fourth Mask; everything else takes place in level 1.

Well, I'm stuck. In the Celestial Mountains level, there is a building that requires two gems for entry. I have one of the gems (from under the iced-over pool) and I can see the other behind a gate that is in a room with spike traps on every other square. Access to this room was opened by throwing one of 4 floor levers in an adjacent room. A second lever opened up access to a secret skull in a crawlspace, the other two levers are death traps (spikes and flames). I've searched so much I think I'm blind. How to open this gate to get the second gem?

I could be wrong, but I think you have to run across the metal floor panels in the same room as the gate and make sure to touch each of them in order for it to open.

I'm stuck later in Celestial Mountains: I just got a second mask by ringing a gong with a boulder. The only other mask I got was in the water just before entering Celestial Mountains. Do I now need to return to Level 1?

I didn't understand that puzzle and I didn't see hints but you have to jump on certain safe tiles and the gate opens.
I can't recall which tiles. I tried random.

As Mulf said, there are 3 masks in level 1 and 1 mask in level 2. So, yes. You have to go back.

Craig and Teone, you were right...I ran across each one of the marked tiles and the gate opened. I have a tendency to overthink a puzzle and miss the obvious. Thank you, I'm on my way again.

Glad it helped!

I'm stumped in Level 1. I see there is a slot for a single ice crystal to open a door on the upper level of the monastery, but don't know where to find it, or where the two masks might be. That's the only door I'm aware of that I haven't explored. 5/6 secrets so far so I think I must be close to finishing.

I can't tell what you've done or not done, and which of the masks you are missing. It may help if you told us what you have in your inventory. Do you have the crowbar?

it'sa frequent case of stuck when you get 2 things in 1 moment so you miss one

I haven't set any crates afloat . . . there an area with constantly rising and falling trapdoors but I can't figure out how to get up to that level. There's another room where I got the torch and shot a gem in a lion's mouth, but that was ages ago so I don't know what they did.

There is a slanted block with a triangular flat top and an opening above it in the E wall. Backflip onto that triangular tile, then backflip once more onto an adjoining block, from which you can jump up through the opening to the ledge on the higher level.
(I said 'backflip' in part because you need to bring a burning torch up there.)
