Monkey Forest, Ubud, Bali


What can you expect:

Monkey Forest Ubud is the sanctuary or natural habitat of Balinese long tailed Monkey. It is located at Padangtegal Ubud, Bali. This piece of jungle owes its name to its hairy inhabitants: as many as 600 cheeky macaques live there. With their soft fur and cute snout, the monkeys look harmless, but keep a close eye on your belongings. The monkeys are fond of food, but also regularly run off with bags and cameras.
The forest is also conveniently positioned near Ubud Town Center, and within easy walking distance from guesthouses and resorts along the main roads of Jalan Hanoman. Besides watching playful monkeys in their natural habitat, swinging through canopies, lazing along pathways or feeding on bananas, the site offers cool walks along paved pathways through a leafy nutmeg forest.
