Interesting isn’t it? Have you visited this wonderful place? If you haven’t marked it as a must-visit place when in Ubud. Also, those who fear monkeys should avoid this place as rarely they can climb on you out of curiosity!

  1. The name of the forest is a deterrent for me. I liked the picture of the dragon bridge though and the aerial prop roots of the banyan tree. I like forests, greenery and big trees, though not much the invasive animals though. Among the primates, I like langoors though – they are non-invasive and very peaceful.
    Thank you Madam for your interesting post on Bali.. 🙂 Got something new to learn as usual.. 🙂
