Meta Junglira Zone is the third Zone of Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble for the Sega Game Gear. As with other Zones in this game, Meta Junglira consists of two standard Acts followed by a shorter third Act which contains the Zone's boss. This Zone comes after Sunset Park Zone and precedes Robotnik Winter Zone.
Meta Junglira is a sprawling, swampy rainforest, similar to Angel Island Zone and Wood Zone. The bottom of the Zone is filled with viscous, muddy swamp water; the player should keep jumping when wading through it, because sinking off the bottom of the screen is not conducive to Sonic or Tails' good health. Hidden items can be found by sinking into the swamp slightly.
Strange woven baskets above the mud can launch Sonic and Tails skywards into a thick canopy of wooden passageways. Glass spheres like those seen in Collision Chaos hang from the trees, frequently responsible for rebounding our heroes straight back down to where they came from like pinballs.
The Zone's name is a reference to Shangri-La from the 1933 novel Lost Horizon.

The following are the locations of the Chaos Emerald Monitors for access to the Special Stage in Meta Junglira Zone:
- Act 1: Inside a small room located after the first set of woven baskets near the swamp water.
