Monkey Mines in its entirety
|Location||Donkey Kong Island|
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong Country|
Monkey Mines is the second area in Donkey Kong Country, after Kongo Jungle and before Vine Valley. The area has many holes in the ground, with the mines being abandoned. Mine carts with incomplete tracks, narrow walkways and ancient ruins are commonplace in this area. The guardian of the big banana here is Master Necky.
The main environments in this area are old, abandoned mines and the occasional temple. Half-ruined minecart tracks litter some parts of the area and narrow walkways hang from the inside of the mines.
