About Monkey Forest, Bali

Also known as Mandala Wisata Wanara wana in local Sanskri language, this forest sanctuary is a secluded and beautiful resort for monkeys. The green foliage and the breezy walking path makes you want to visit this forest again and again. There are around 140 macaques in the forest that happily call it a home and you get to feed them and observe their daily life.

There are actually 3 holy temples within its compound. The closest one to the entrance gate is Pura Prajapati which is used for cremation ceremony for the deceased. A little walk further will bring you to the staircase that leads you down to the Holy Bathing Temple at the nearby stream. The most important temple is probably the Pura Dalem Agung which is a local temple for Padangtegal villagers. During my visit, there was a ceremony being held at Pura Dalem Agung.

Monkey Forest, Bali Reviews

  • This was such a fun experience. These monkeys are not shy and they WILL jump on you if you have food. Not for the faint of heart. ;) Great photo ops with the monkeys. There are also beautiful trees here! We ran into some folks that said they went here early in the morning when it wasn't busy... They got ambushed by the monkeys because there wasn't anyone else there!! They said the monkeys were very aggressive. So this may be the only place you'll want to visit DURING PEAK hours.

  • So much fun! We went fairly early to beat the crowds. The monkeys have a continuous supply of sweet potato to eat so they are never desperately hungry but they will open your bag if you have food(even if it’s in a sealed package) and they loveeeee bananas! My friend had a granola bar in his bag, they unzipped his bag, found the bar and ate it πŸ˜‚. They will also grab your water and drink it. All in all I had a wonderful time watching the monkeys chase each other (and humans). Highly recommend

  • A place with full oh πŸ’ monkey's..😍😍😍 good place to visit. Two wheeler and four wheeler parking also available with free and chargeable. I think first two hours of parking free itssems. Sign boards are available to visit places and track the way. Two entrance is available. You can buy tickets at both entrance. An some entrance is only for exit. Do not feed to monkey's. Sometimes it will try to grab from you. So careful with that.if you have any bag or plastic just hid from the monkey. You can take photo also with monkey's and with help of working people from there. All good. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • The sacred monkey Forest Sanctuary is a wonderful place for everyone to visit. The cost of entrance I believe is $5 and it is more than worth it. The monkeys are free to roam in the sanctuary you are not encouraged to touch them but they are welcome to interact with you. There is beautiful scenery, temples and walking paths. You can buy bananas for very cheap and they will walk up you to grab it. They might even enjoy the banana while sitting on your shoulder :-)

  • One of the best sites to visit in Ubud. If you are visiting the area it is highly encouraged you go. Tickets for pedestrian walk in are 50K per person. Equaling close to 5$ Canadian/ American give or take. You explore the forest on your own. Take note if you go via moped or by car you have to pay for parking. Be careful of the monkeys as they will attempt to take things from you including opening your backpack or grabbing your camera.
