Sacred Monkey Forest

Bali Photography

Ubud Monkey Forest, also known as the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, is one of Ubud’s most popular attractions; a natural forest sanctuary that is home to a horde of grey long-tailed macaques. The site is well preserved thanks to a community-based management program. The forest is also conveniently positioned near Ubud Town Centre, and within easy walking distance from guesthouses and resorts along the main roads of Jalan Hanoman and the namesake Jalan Monkey Forest.Playing around with the photogenic and friendly monkeys here never gets old. The surrounding forest itself creates gorgeous scenery with its tall trees, carved mythical creatures, hanging roots, and temples. Admission fee is Rp50,000 per person and no additional charge is applied if the photo shooting is done casually. There’s an additional charge if the couple are wearing bridal attires. Best time for shooting at sacred monkey forest is 8.30am, on the opening time. For more info visit their website here.
