For me, on the other hand.. an not much a fan of the monkeys. But still I enjoyed this place - more so for its greens being surrounded with huge trees and a stream as well.
|Tickets to the entrance.|
|There are loads of bananas up for sale at the entrance. Get them if you wanna experience some monkey business!|
|Thought this monkey looked all good for a shot. Quite a pose eh on the rock!|
|Baby monkey, papa monkey, mummy monkey.. all can be found here! Personally, I find the baby monkeys more adorable (and less daring) haha!|
|Quite a view right :)|
|The stream is peaceful|
A place to visit, if you have some spare time while in Ubud area.
*The monkeys within the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal are commonly called long-tailed macaques (scientific name is Macaca fascicuiaris).
*The Sacred Monkey Forest is the location of Padangtegal's Pura Dalem.
*The Sacred Monkey Forest apparently has 115 separate species of trees.
Some of these trees are considered holy and are used in various Balinese spiritual practices. Examples include the Majegan, which is used exclusively for the building of shrines; or the Berigin, whose leaves are used in cremation ceremonies.
