Vine Valley is the twenty-ninth stage in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, as well as the first area in the Forest world. It is preceded by The Mole Train and followed by Clingy Swingy.

This stage is set in a large forest full of both long and short vines. Donkey and Diddy Kong must use these vines to their advantage by using them to swing over large gaps and collect special items, such as Banana Coins. As they swing through the forest, they must watch out for a large number of red and yellow carnivorous plant enemies, known as Chomps. These foes constantly try to attack them, so they have to carefully maneuver along some of the vines to safely pass them. Additionally, some of the vines in this stage appear to be the tongue of a giant, blue Chomp enemy that can eat the Kongs if they hang on too long. Other than Chomps, the enemies in this stage include Cling CobrasTiki GoonsTiki Dooms, and Tiki Buzzes.
