Sangeh Monkey Forest, Sangeh

#17 of 91 in Nature in Bali
Must see · Forest · Nature / Park
Religion meets nature at Sangeh Monkey Forest, a forest as famous for its hordes of monkeys as for its overgrown temple. Take a walk among the nutmeg trees, which can grow up to 40 m (130 ft) tall and are home to the cheeky monkeys that many consider the guardians of Pura Bukit Sari temple. Don't miss the temple's central courtyard and its statue of Garuda, which symbolizes freedom and the attainment of the elixir of life. Keep a close eye on any shiny possessions like jewelry, as well as expensive technology like cameras and cell phones--the monkeys commonly steal valuable possessions from unsuspecting tourists. Though your guide might encourage you to feed the monkeys, this can be very dangerous, as they can be aggressive and might carry diseases. With our custom trip planner, Sangeh attractions like Sangeh Monkey Forest can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • So much fun! We were lucky to be there on a rainy day and therefore were practically the only ones in the forest! We got to play with monkeys and take awesome pictures!
  • Its been long time for first visit to this monkey forest, and I saw so many improvement for treating this place and looking after the monkey. The monkey its self are good, harmless. The ticket is cheap compared to other monkey forest.
