The Sights of Ubud INDONESIA Sacred Monkey Forest

Sacred Monkey Forest Detailed Overview

  • “Best day of my life”..  is what i screamed over and over as i (attempted to) play with hundreds of monkeys at this magical place.
  • The monkey forest costs about $5USD to enter and is a beautifully curated attraction with its lush jungles, wooden overpasses, walkways through streams and man-made rivers, and amazing sculptures that are at each turn inside the forest.  Even without the monkeys this place is incredible.
  • Now on to the monkeys. There are over 700 hundred of them in this forest and they are classed as semi-free meaning that they can roam around freely within the confines of the forest premesis. And they are everywhere! lazing on the railings of the pathways, on all the trees, over all the temples and even just walking along the pathways with you. It is amazing to have them jump on you, steal your things (lock yo’ things down!) and watch them from so close just hanging out.
  • It’s a popular site and you will see lots of tourists, but don’t let that affect how awesome this place is and how fun it is to explore.
  • Big ups to Julien Bru Productions for capturing the magic of this place!
