Ubud Monkey Forest

About Ubud Monkey Forest

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 creates gorgeous scenery with its tall trees, carved mythical creatures, hanging roots, and temples. This location is perfect if you like a tropical sanctuary backdrop for your engagement or honeymoon.

Best Time to Shoot

As most of the spot is under the shade you can shoot anytime here. But for me personally, I love shooting from 08.30 am at the opening time so it’s less crowded. For more info visit their website here.
