Hello all, I hope you are doing well. This week I am here again with another Nanchi’s Fun Facts Friday. You must have read and felt my love for Bali so I thought why not dedicate a Friday post to the beautiful location. Can you imagine a monkey forest in the heart of the city?
Here we go this week’s Nanchi’s Fun Facts Friday is dedicated to the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali……
- Monkey Forest is located in the Padangtegal Ubud, Bali.
- Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali has around 1049 Balinese long-tailed monkeys or Macaque.
- The forest is spread in 12.5 hectares and home to 186 species of trees.
- There are 3 temples inside the forest.
- The temples in the sacred monkey forest are believed to be built in the 14th century i.e at the beginning of the Gelgel dynasty.
- A rocky stream flows at the bottom of the deep ravine.
- Well marked paths help you to walk around the monkey forest.
In the pic is the famous Instagram Friendly Dragon Bridge in the forest. A huge banyan tree engulfs the bridge built over the gorge.
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!
