K3 is a snowy, frigid mountain and the fifth world of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.
Like any mountain in high altitude, K3 is covered in snow and ice and constantly wracked by blizzards and snowstorms. Because of the setting, most areas, including the boss level, take place in the snow. Due to the slippery surface, sledding is used as a means of traveling through K3: there is one level where the Kongs use a Toboggan and a later level featuring Lemguins, who move around by sliding on their bellies.
Aside from its snowy fields, K3 also features rocky cliffs and crevices, some of which the Kongs have to scale on. The area also has a large waterfall running through it, and appears to be flowing into the main world map, the Northern Kremisphere. Right next to the waterfall peak is a factory that the Kremlings have relocated to following KAOS's defeat in Mekanos.
The Brothers Bear of K3 is Blizzard, who resides in Blizzard's Basecamp; his purpose is requesting Dixie and Kiddy Kong to deliver a Present to Blue. The secret cave of K3 is Glacial Grotto, which is located to the left of Blizzard's Basecamp.
The world's boss is an evil snowman named Bleak, who is fought at the northeast corner of the world map. From the world map, it appears to give off a sinister frowning face.
