Crystal Caves is the sixth level in Donkey Kong 64 (however, the player can choose to do Creepy Castle before entering this one). As the name suggests, it is a cave made of ice. The caves inside the highlands of the isles are encrusted with rimes of ice, as well as jagged ore deposits. A giant Kosha lurks in the highest part of the cave, raining stalactites down on the unsuspecting Kongs. The area has all the Kong shops in it. The area'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.
