After exploring a freezing cold peak and getting attacked by abominable snowmen, our heroes decide to go someplace a bit warmer. They enter the trunk of a palm tree, only to be transported back in time to the land of the pharaohs, where they explore cursed pyramids and solve ancient puzzles.
Gobi's Valley is the sixth world accessed from Gruntilda's Lair in Banjo-Kazooie. This level features three pyramids, a sphinx, and even a giant golden Kazooie statue. This is the first of two levels (the other being Click Clock Wood), to feature Gobi, a camel who ends up hating you as you use the Beak Buster on his hump and take his stuff.
