Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

A Balinese Hindu site, the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary is populated by some 600 long-tailed Balinese macaques, living in and around the forest, with many spilling out to wander the streets nearby. Visitors to the famed Ubud monkey forest often have the chance to observe numerous monkeys and even get their picture taken with one from a safe distance. While it's safe to interact with the monkeys, touching and playing with them is not permitted.

Also of interest within the sacred monkey forest are three Hindu temples: Pura Dalem Agung (Death Temple), the Holy Bathing Temple, and Pura Prajapati (Funerary or Cremation Temple). All three are sacred, as is the forest and the monkeys, who are believed to protect the area from evil spirits.

Practical Info

Also known as the Mandala Wisata Wanara Wana, the sanctuary is located in the village of Padangtegal in Bali, Indonesia. Monkey Forest Road runs downhill in an L-shape from Jalan Rayan, Ubud's main street. The sanctuary is open every day from 8:30am to 6pm, with the last entry at 5:30pm. The adult entrance fee is $3 (40 IDR) for adults and $2.25 (30 IDR) for children.

Although Viator tours do not include this activity, visitors are permitted to feed the monkeys bananas, which can be purchased at a counter inside the main entrance. Visitors should be warned that these wild animals can be aggressive, particularly in their pursuit of food. Should a monkey jump or climb on you, do not panic, but stand up and slowly back away.
