Ancient nutmeg trees going to heights of 40 meters fill the 13 hectares of this forest sanctuary,  thought to have been planted as a royal garden for the Mengwi Kingdom. It is home to the grey long tailed macaque after whom the village nearby is named. Once upon a time a mere curiosity, today a successful tourist attraction, this sanctuary now has toilets, concession stands and forest Trails for visitors to explore. Multiple monkey tribes inhabit these trees, each with its own alpha. The undisputed ruler of the whole place lives inside the Bukit Sari Temple also called Pura Pucak Sari. It is the largest of the four temples found here which include Pura Melanting, Pura Tirta, and Pura Anyar. Also keep an eye for the Lanang Wadon, a.k.a the Male Female tree, whose lower branches resemble genitals. There are also various other animals and birds living in the forest.

Sangeh Monkey Forest, Bali Reviews - Write a Review

  • Lust temple with nice garden full of Monkey families! The monkey rangers look after and trained the monkey and make sure they good to visitors!

  • The monkey forest is a nice and refreshing scenery. Monkeys are well trained for camera. The guides, who happen to be photographers as well are very helpful...

  • The forest is beautiful and not too crowded. Very big trees here. Monkeys are mostly calm, however don't provoke them.

  • The Guides/rangers really got the monkeys under control, the temple is nice and the woods even shield from light rain

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