DK Pass is a snowy track owned by Donkey Kong which appears in Mario Kart DS, in the Star Cup. It reappeared in Mario Kart 7 as the second course in Leaf Cup. It is similar to DK Summit from Mario Kart Wii.


Before the descent down the mountain, there is a wide corner with a snowy mound on its inside. If racers head up this mound, they can collect an Item Box which always has Triple Mushrooms, a Star, a Red Shell, or just a Mushroom, in it. The chances of getting a Mushroom or a Red Shell is pretty slim.
