Enroute up the stairs or at least at the top you will come across monkeys. Even blue ones if they are sitting under the shade cloth. Be careful of them as they will whip things out of your hand before you know it, especially drinks or food. Also beware of women with metal canisters on their head posing by the gates at the top. If you take their photos, they will expect payment.
