Magma Citadel

   This page contains information regarding a trail in Monkey Quest. Not to be confused with the quest, The Magma Citadel.

The Magma Citadel is a Crossroads trail in Monkey Quest.

Carved into the rock itself by molten lava, the Magma Citadel is an immense fortress that lies deep under the ground. Dating from an ancient era, the stronghold has become the home of Ka's strongest minions. Grave dangers await but only for those monkeys who can solve the puzzling gates standing in the way.

Tips & Hints

Button Mashers - After the harrowing descent through the citadel, the passage opens up to a large chamber. At its bottom is a series of buttons separated by magma pits. Deciphering them is the key to accessing the rest of the citadel.

The two buttons furthest to the left unlock a gate on that side. The second button from the left combined with any other button activates a moving platform on the left side. The far right three buttons activate an invisible platform on the right that also requires a Scrying Orb. Trigger them all to explore the full extent of the citadel.


  • This trail is the hardest and most challenging area of Monkey Quest, due to having the highest level range (47 - 51).
  • Because of Monkey Quest's closure on September 26, Magma Citadel is considered to be the true final area of Monkey Quest.
  • This trail is impossible to solo, due to the switches and puzzles that require multiple monkeys. You will need to bring a group of friends due to the puzzles required in order to battle monsters, or else you can't venture through the entire trail.
  • According to the trail's description, Ka's strongest minions dwell here.
  • The Magma Citadel is one of very few trails that has an arena with five Spawners.
    • In fact, it was also one of the very few trails to have two treasure chests after defeating both arenas.
  • Only two quests in the entire game require you to enter the Magma Citadel, making it the most exclusive trail in Monkey Quest (excluding Hero's Shrine).
  • According to the quest "The Magma Citadel", you need a special stone to enter this area that is found in the Cindertop Highland, despite the fact that you can still enter it even without the stone.
  • This is the only trail with enemies that go above level 50 (excluding trails with scaling difficulty such as the Ninja Scout Trail).
  • In terms of artwork, this trail seems to be quite similar to The Volcano Lair.
  • This trail seems to incorporate aspects of trails from other tribes, an example of this being the Chim Foo obstacles and the purple poison gas from the Ootu Mystics tribe.
