It's a huge and well-maintained sanctuary, worth the price for an experience as such. Monkeys seemed to be well-fed and well-behaved. There were signages everywhere to remind visitors of le do's and dont's, as well the monkey whisperers for lookouts. Keep up mgt.

We were pretty surprised to see other tourists actively goading the monkeys to jump up on them and take food from their hands. In our experience, several of the monkeys were a bit aggressive, even without any provocation--one monkey came up to me, reared up...More

Really a nice place where to walk and enjoy nature. Do not expect nothing "excessive", but just appreciate the beauty of the nature and of the monkeys playing around you...

Definetely check out the monkey forest if you have the chance to do so because the nature is breathtaking and you probably won't have the chance to see that many monkies in one spot again soon. However, be respectful towards the animals and, most importantly,...More

A great way to spend an hour whilst in Ubud. Beware of any valuables you may have with you as monkeys are thieves. Great to go see them and watch their cheeky mannerisms. Some cute little babies hanging onto their mums and some great picture...More

Monkeys were nice and didn't even try to steal anything from us, they did jump on us few times but they were small and didn't hurt us at all. One monkey even tried to share his banana or what was left of it. I had...More

It is 50.000 per person, you can walk around and visit 4 small temples. There is also a small cemetery for the people from the village. And you can feed the monkeys.

Hi Tony, I went there with my big Canon camera and I took a lot of pictures with no problem. The monkeys are just looking for bananas but they were not aggressive. Have a good time there.
