UBUD MONKEY FOREST
Mandala Suci Wenara Wana
Harmony with people. Harmony with nature. Harmony with God.
These three principles define the traditional philosophy for life on the island of Bali, Indonesia. And, there is no better place to experience these principles in practice than at the Ubud Monkey Forest Bali constructed in the 14th century. Here visitors can find three temples, lush green forest, and hundreds of monkeys!
Bali Monkey Forest images can only capture so much of the experience. But being there, you get to observe them in their natural habitat and feel empathetic as these monkeys experience all the familiar emotions. You can find playful monkeys chasing each other, monkeys fighting over food, one older monkey sitting completely still with eyes closed as if meditating, a mother monkey holding and grooming her precious little baby monkey, a group of monkeys conspiring to loot the food bank 🍌🍌🍌
Ubud Monkey forest, officially named Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, is easy to find as almost everyone in Bali know what you are referring to if you ask about something along the line of “monkey forest ubud directions”. As we were staying in Ubud, we rented a scooter for the day to visit monkey forest and other awesome places in Ubud. But if you are not staying in Ubud, the best way to visit monkey forest is as part of a tour. You can find many Bali tours that stop at monkey forest if you google “ubud monkey forest tour”.
Ubub monkey forest entrance fee for adults is 80,000 IDR (~$6) and children 60,000 rupiahs (~$4.50). And, monket forest is open daily from 8:30AM to 6:00PM.
