Cheeky monkeys

It’s lovely to see all the monkeys but watch out they are cheeky!
They will jump on you and look forward food. Make sure you have nothing on you. You camera and phone needs to be secured to your body.

Lots of Monkey
Jan 2021
I had a chance to visit during my stay in Ubud. It was an okay experience for me. Basically you just visit an area with lots of monkeys. They did not really bother you but just be aware of your surroundings. Got a chance to see a funeral procession for Balinese near the area. Very interesting

Hilarious monkeys

We had a great time here and cannot recommend enough. For a reasonable price you can spend as long as you went walking around the incredible jungle and temples. And the monkeys are non stop entertainment 😂

Amazing

I was so lucky to come to the monkey forest when no tourist were allowed in the country so we basically had it to ourselves. The monkeys are very cute and they won't attack you, no need to be scared just follow the instructions. There were also staff available around the sanctuary... was very nice!

Monkey Magic
Mar 2020
We decided to take the ten-minute stroll from the resort towards Ubud’s town center. Passing the serene rice paddies, my daughter spied some local kids clambering up and down the terraced pathways and took off to join them with her little brother scampering behind. A few muddy moments later we were being ushered through a short cut to Monkey Forest by our tiny neighborhood tour guides.

Monkey Forest is a nature reserve with sacred Hindu temples and over 600 monkeys. As we entered, a troop of the cheeky little creatures jumped onto my back and grabbed for my sparkly earrings. The kids wheezed with laughter as I spun around, wildly waving my arms until a park attendant came to my rescue.

The balance
Dec 2020 • Friends
I was there at the same time with Balinese celebrating the day of animals ritual or simply Tumpek Uye / Kandang in Balinese language. It is the representation of Balinese grateful to the God for being given the animals for their life with many purposes.

They also celebrate that day in monkey forest with a lot of offerings and rituals. Which is symbolizing how they synchronize their life with spirituality, humanity and environment.

More fun than barrel of monkeys
Jan 2020 • Family
This place is truly more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Several individual monkey families living within a large compound. I must see you either with kids or without
