It's a nice place if you want to see monkeys but they don't seem to take a lot of care of the animals. You can see a lot of the care takers selling food and making money when you are taking pictures of the monkeys...More

One of the most amazing experiences in bali, located near to the center of ubud! Definitely you must visit it, the monkeys also the forest give a unique stroll to the nature! Just be careful and listen the instructions for the monkeys!

Beautiful Forrest and wonderful monkeys. Be careful of being charged too much by the workers inside for bananas for the monkeys.

It is 50.000 per person, you can walk around and visit 4 small temples. There is also a small cemetery for the people from the village. And you can feed the monkeys.

Hi Tony, I went there with my big Canon camera and I took a lot of pictures with no problem. The monkeys are just looking for bananas but they were not aggressive. Have a good time there.
