The Sacred Forrest is home to more than 600 Balinese long-tailed macaques belonging to 4 different species. There are also 3 temples and amazing Hindu art everywhere.
When visiting the Ubud region this Forrest is an interesting place to see. Although the inhabitants are almost “domesticated”, you will see them in a better environment than the Zoo and you can interact with them. The monkeys are very playful, however you should pay attention to a few things before going in:
- You will need to pay an entry ticket: 40.000 IDR for adults and 30.000 IDR for children.
- Do not wear long, shiny jewellery pieces or any kind of “bling-bling”. They will be instantly attracted to that and they might attack you in order to steal the shiny thing from you.
- Pay attention to your camera, this is also subject of stealing as everything that hangs is.
- food for the animals can be bought on site and you can feed them too, but be aware on the risks.
This place does not offer only a walk among the wild monkeys, but it also offers a special feel of a tropical rainforest climate and amazing landscapes.
