Entering from Mt. Gagazet, head past the Save Sphere and through the first few areas. Pass the merchant (buy from her if needed) and head into the dome. Walk up and around to the higher area until you reach an intersection. Take the right path to a dead end for a chest with a Dispel Tonic, then walk back and head to the top left and around. Pick up the chest with Phoenix Down x2 before moving on to the next area. Found here before the steps is a chest with Hi-Potion x2. A little further is Grenade x2. After opening it, move forward to find Issaru. Speak with him to learn that monkeys are infesting the ruins and driving off the tourists. As he walks away, Rikku and Paine come up with a plan to help the monkeys and run off the tourists for good. The mission "Operation: Monkey!" begins. You must now find and pair up all 12 sets of monkeys scattered throughout the Zanarkand Ruins. Begin by picking up a monkey that is love (noted by hearts above it's head) with and offering it to the other monkeys by locating them and again pressing . If you find the correct one, they will fall in love. Be careful though because offer to the wrong monkey and it may swipe some Gil. Finding and matching all pairs of monkeys will reward you with the Soul of Thamasa accessory.

Head down the lift to the Chamber of Fayth and north to a large circular room. The chests scattered here contain Elixir x2, Phoenix Down x2, Hi-Potion x2, Remedy x3, Remedy x2, and Ether x2.
When you have finished collecting items and pairing up monkeys, board the airship and move on to the next area.
