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.

Small "forest". Monkeys are trained to sit on tourist shoulders. Good thing: no aggressive animals.

Beautiful. Don't make it the only thing you visit in the day. It doesn't take that long to look around. Play with the monkeys. The local guides are very polite and non-pushy. 50-75 for tip is fair.

This monkey forest hasn't got to many tourists like other ones. We bought some peanuts at the entrance for a fair price. At the start, where the monkeys are, there are locals who explain the monkeys in short. Things like don't have sunglasses on your head, don't touch the monkeys, pls open your bag of peanuts before you enter or one monkey will take it in one time 😆. The monkeys there are friendly because the locals keep an eye on them. I was rather sceptic about monkeys because they can get aggressive but here you are safe. We went to take a walk in the forest far from anyone else and we saw in the back of the road a local who was following us(just to keep us safe). This monkey forest is a bit farther than the others from ubud, but it's worth the drive.
