Sangeh Monkey Forest, Sangeh

4.2
#17 of 96 in Nature in Bali
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. With our custom trip planner, Sangeh attractions like Sangeh Monkey Forest can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The forest is nice, much more calm than the one in Ubud, but the tourist guides are so pushy to take pictures with you and the monkeys... Upon arrival you need to pay quite a high price for entry to.....  more »
  • I decided we wanted to go here instead of the monkey forest in Ubud, as I had read that the monkeys here were not aggressive. We asked our wonderful driver from Ubud (contact me if you'd like to use....  more »

  • So much fun! We were lucky to be there on a rainy day and therefore were practically the only ones in the forest! We got to play with monkeys and take awesome pictures!
  • Its been long time for first visit to this monkey forest, and I saw so many improvement for treating this place and looking after the monkey. The monkey its self are good, harmless. The ticket is cheap compared to other monkey forest.
  • The monkeys smells good tho. I didn't expect that! I mean they smell fresh 😲 The sanctuary is peaceful and has perfect cold breeze. 😍 There will be times that monkey will approach you but don't be afraid they well fed and tamed. The last spot is you and the KING. The souvenir of your printed shot with the KING is optional and phones are allowed but without FLASH.
  • Sweet gentle friendly little monkeys in a gorgeous sacred temple forest. Experienced knowledgeable guides who speak good English to accompany visitors around the forest. Opportunity to feed the monkeys with crackers and fruit. Cheap ticket prices which go towards upkeep and care of the monkeys and temples. Beautiful scenery and calm atmosphere. The dear little monkeys are just adorable. Very suitable for families and children. We enjoyed our visit very much, and we look forward to returning on our next holiday to Bali.
  • nice park, it not crowded you can relax in here. not to many tourist came or know this place. by the way the ticket entrance its so cheap. i like it.
