We visited the Monkey forest which is downtown. The monkeys are cool and the forest is absolutely beautiful. Its not to be missed! Watch your personal affects such as sunglasses, etc. Small entrance fee. We loved it!

This was a great experience. The monkeys were brilliant. Just use your common sense and listen to instruction from the staff when feeding the monkeys and don't scream with surprise. If you just observe and take pictures from a distance they are fine with you...More

Take same bananas and you will enjoy a crazy few hours with monkeys. Leave your belongs all at the hotel or in the bike/car... they will jump to you to try to find some food!

This was definitely a highlight for me. To my delight I had monkeys jumping onto my shoulder. I took some great selfies. Great fun. Beautiful setting. These monkeys are definitely living the life :)

It is 50.000 per person, you can walk around and visit 4 small temples. There is also a small cemetery for the people from the village. And you can feed the monkeys.

Hi Tony, I went there with my big Canon camera and I took a lot of pictures with no problem. The monkeys are just looking for bananas but they were not aggressive. Have a good time there.
