Sangeh Monkey Forest

About Sangeh Monkey Forest

If you hear the word monkey forest you might immediately remember a place in Ubud. But, there’s another monkey forest in Badung Regency, close to Canggu, it’s called Sangeh Monkey Forest. Like the other monkey forest in Bali, it’s a home for long-tailed grey macaques. Monkey’s population in this forest is around 700 monkeys and they are tame and friendly enough to play with.

Sangeh Monkey Forest covers around 6 hectares of fertile forestland with primordial, giant nutmeg trees that can grow up to 40 meters in height. There are also mahogany, guava, and sapodilla trees – some of the trees at Sankey Monkey Forest are over 3 centuries old.

Another interesting thing in the monkey forest is the temple, called Bukit Sari Temple. It is a sanctified temple which is known as Pura Pucak Sari in the locals. Rainforest, beautiful Balinese architecture, what a great location!

Best Time to Shoot

The good thing about photo-shooting in the forest we can shoot anytime without worrying about the sunlight as the location is under the shade. I usually shoot here a bit early around 3 pm before heading to Canggu beach or in the middle of the day after the session in Ubud.
