4.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
Religion meets nature at Sangeh Monkey Forest, a forest as famous for its hordes of monkeys as for its overgrown temple. Take a walk among the nutmeg trees, which can grow up to 40 m (130 ft) tall and are home to the cheeky monkeys that many consider the guardians of Pura Bukit Sari temple. Don't miss the temple's central courtyard and its statue of Garuda, which symbolizes freedom and the attainment of the elixir of life. Keep a close eye on any shiny possessions like jewelry, as well as expensive technology like cameras and cell phones--the monkeys commonly steal valuable possessions from unsuspecting tourists. Though your guide might encourage you to feed the monkeys, this can be very dangerous, as they can be aggressive and might carry diseases.

  • We had stop here on the way back from Tanah Lot to Ubud. There are too many stalls selling souvenirs and clothes. Monkeys are quite nice but the area are so so. We have been in Ubud Monkey forest. 
  • We were looking for POD Chicolate Factory, and noticed the SANGEH MONKEY FOREST along the way ! Although it was drizzling, we decided to take a stroll through the forest. We purchased a couple bags of...  read more »
  • After the Monkey forest Ubud is really that the monkeys here much quieter. They fall you don't to, climbing quietly on you, listen to the Guide (this one goes free with you, does sell pictures with the monkeys as a bonus). The Guide gave us a beautiful river show further in the forest. Great experience!

  • Best monkey forest. Monkeys are friendlier and more relaxed than Ubud. The original and best monkey forest
  • Bit of a hidden gem, I'd say. Place was mostly empty when we were there (april 16), staff was friendly and the temple is a nice sight. The monkeys round here don't seem to care for visitors much and we were able to watch them go about their life for a long time. A really good experience.
  • Awesome place. The monkeys are cool. The temples are really nice.
  • I felt like the monkeys were a lot more friendly and the guides make sure you stay away from the aggressive ones. It was cool to be able to feed them peanuts and see the baby monkeys with their mums. The guide was good taking pictures etc but you can only go through with a guide and at the end they take you to their shop so you can hopefully buy something which can be a bit awkward if you dont want to.
  • Great place very sereen very old and tall trees many of them its like Bali long time ago even the monkeys are nice and cool compared whit the one in Ubud
