Sangeh Monkey Forest - Review
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
Been 3 times and there were no more than 2-3 other groups of tourists each time. It’s smaller and has less monkeys than the main monkey forest, but I like it FAR better because there are barely any other tourists. You can have more fun because you’re still allowed to feed the monkeys peanuts and bananas (the former is more fun). The Ubud monkey forest doesn’t allow interaction with the monkeys anymore
This was WAY WAY WAY better than visiting the Monkey Sanctuary. I wish I would have saved my time and money and just gone here. Amazing interaction with the monkeys. The guides were very informative and friendly.
Beautiful forest to visit the monkeys. It's not as popular as the sacred monkey forest in Ubud, that also means it is far less crowded, which was really nice! I much preferred this monkey forest. Peanuts etc available to buy from vendors as treats for monkeys. Well worth a visit.
The forest is look very nice with his nutmeg tree, statue and the temple. We have good local guide who will help the visitor making some photos with the monkey. It is recommended place to visit. Check it out.
A very unique place with old architecture. You can buy food for the monkeys and walk in this amazing tropical forest while feeding them. Be aware that some monkeys can be very persistent when they want something. Just sit and they will come. Don't be afraid and don't do quick moves.
