For the similar monkey-inhabited cave-like location in EarthBound Beginnings, see Ruins of Desert.

The Monkey Cave (タライ・ジャブの穴, The Hole of Tarai Jab) can be found in EarthBound's Dusty Dunes Desert. It is home to many monkeys and a wise man named Talah Rama, and it is here where Ness learns the PSI technique of Teleport α.

After Ness and Jeff defeat the Mani-Mani Statue in Moonside, Ness gets a call from Apple Kid saying that he had a new invention shipped to them through the Escargo Express "neglected class". After seeing the delivery man, he informs the two that he left the package in a cave in the desert. Ness and Jeff find the cave and enter; inside, they find many monkeys who are blocking the various tunnel entrances. In exchange for permission to move deeper into the cave, the monkeys ask for an array of items like Pizzas and Wet Towels, most of which can be found inside the cave. At the end, they find Talah Rama, who gives them Apple Kid's invention, the Yogurt Dispenser. He then asks a monkey to teach Ness how to Teleport.
