My trip to the Monkey Forest in Ubud

Monkey Forest - 30

Monkey Forest in Ubud

The Monkey Forest  is a nature reserve and temple complex in Ubud and a must for anyone visiting Bali. It’s a popular tourist attraction and often visited by over 10,000 tourists a month.

The forest contains at least 115 different species of trees and is owned by the village of Padangtegal. The village members manages the Monkey Forest and serves to maintain its sacred integrity and to promote the sacred site as a destination for visitors.

The monkeys are certainly not shy and any food that’s on you, they’ll find! Don’t feed them by hand unless you’re comfortable with the monkeys climbing on you. Over 340 Macaques roam the grounds so you’re guaranteed a lot of sightings.
