Crystal Caves is a level in Donkey Kong 64. It is officially the sixth level in the game, though the player can choose to complete Creepy Castle before it. It is a cavern complex filled with light blue crystals and jagged ore deposits. Wooden cabins, an ice castle, and an igloo are found here. A Giant Viking Kremling lurks in the highest part of the caves, raining stalactites down on the unsuspecting Kongs. This level's boss is a rematch with Army Dillo, the boss from Jungle Japes, and requires 350 regular bananas to give to Scoff and allow Troff to unlock the door to the boss.
Entering Crystal Caves requires 65 Golden Bananas. After Chunky Kong beats Dogadon for a second time and takes the key to K. Lumsy, his jumping up and down will cause vibrations which explode a rock out of the right ear of DK Isles. It is then reached with Tiny Kong's Ponytail Twirl or with Diddy Kong's jetpack, but can also be reached with precise jumping from the other Kongs.
