  • Nice, sporty enough because of its 396 markets! But at the top, the view is amazing! There are monkeys everywhere, on the road, the markets and at the top. They are at home! My 12 year old son and my 9 year old daughter have been a little afraid of the monkeys, but the monkeys are not at all aggressive, and my 1 year old baby that my husband was carrying in a back carrier, has seemed to have loved! A good activity to do with your family!

  • Did it once and got it off the bucket list. Monkey's are a real nuisance and the stench of their urine and feces is everywhere. Nice views from the top at sunset. Too many people giving the monkey's food and they are now quite aggressive. Stow all loose items. One girl had her baseball cap stolen. Be very careful about using a mobile phone to take photos. Don't sit on the concrete walls with your back to the ocean as the monkeys will sneak up and grab any loose items. Stay off the wall and leave about a 1 meter separation.

  • good view, beware of monkey. don't buy food from people who try to guide you up the stair way. they are the root of monkey over population and aggressiveness problem. donate to the temple instead.
  • Incredible view from the top. We went up around 7.30 AM, it's not hot yet, there were no tourists and the monkeys were still calm and friendly. We passed many on the stairs without problems but also left them alone and didn't look them in the eyes. The monkeys down at the street were challenging us more and got aggressive. Do not look the monkeys in the eyes, don't bring food, plastic bags or water bottles. Take a backpack with your stuff and wear your camera with a strap and you won't have any problems.
  • Beautiful templesite located at the Krachok mountain. A lot of longtailed macaques here, so do not bring food. Beautiful views if You manage to climb all the steps up.
  • It was a incredible view but be aware of monkeys. Don't wear something that has picture of food on your clothes. I just guessed because they were attached me two times. I wasn't do something bad to them. I went there with 3 more people and after 4 pm. Monkey is everywhere. For now on, monkey is my terror!!!
