“Those mountains are cool to look at, but totally not my style. This place is for the birds!”
Funky Kong, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Autumn Heights is the second island explored by the Kongs in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, unlocked after beating the boss of Lost Mangroves, Pompy. The boss of this world is Skowl.

The environment of Autumn Heights is heavily inspired after Swiss landscapes, being a grassy mountain or canyon where pine, birch trees, and various species of shrubs and flowers form the prevalent vegetation. Swiss architecture is also captured in many of the buildings found in early levels, such as windmills, steeples, and chalets. Some levels take place in greeny landscapes, while others are set in red, autumnal forests. The island also features a sawmill where the trees are chopped up and processed, as well as caverns used for cheese storage by sapient mice, the Cheesy Chesters, common enemies in this world. Other common species are Schnautzels, wild boar enemies that puff fireballs out of their snouts.

Hootzes and other Snowmad relatives seem to have established a town in the higher summits of Autumn Heights. However, some of the huts specific to this town can also be found near the base of the island, during Mountain Mania. Owl statues and constructions are dedicated to the presence of Hootzes. The highest summit of the island itself depicts the visage of an owl.
