    Monkey Forest

    Monkey Forest
    4 more images

    The Monkey Forest is an easy walk from the center of Ubud.

    You can purchase a ticket at one of the three entrances and also buy bananas for them, though I do not recommend this as once they know you have food, they can become quite aggressive!! this small, forested area contains three troops of gray monkeys.

    The forest is very lush with lots of tropical vegetation and moss-covered stone carvings and approximately 200 monkeys.

    They are not afraid of people and will come right up to you, especially if you have food. Watch your glasses, cameras and bags as well or they will be taken by these sweet innocent looking monkeys.

    The forest is also home to three temples, dating from around the 14th century. The largest is the Pura Dalem Agung, located on the highest point of the forest. A path through the trunk of a huge tree and across a small creek leads to the Holy Bathing Temple. The third temple, the Pura Prajapati, is a cremation temple and located next to one of the two graveyards in the monkey forest.

    Open Hours 8.00am - 7.00pm daily.

    Taman Ayun meaning beautiful garden and beautiful garden it is. Taman Ayun has beautiful courtyards that aparently contains the shrines both of the royal family ancestral shrines and shrines to the major deities and was also the main temple for the ancient kingdom of Mengwi. I guess if you coming back from Lake Bratan its worth the stop.

    Lake Bratan

    I loved this places. I guess we took a long time to get here as we had to drive through the narrow winding roads to get to the top here to Lake Bratan. The weather was nice and cool and the view was excellent as the lake is srrounded by inactive volcanoes with this low lying clouds. Lake Bratan has these beautiful Hindu temples along the water. They have a very beautiful botanical garden and well here you also have the options of taking a boat ride and or paragliding and so forth on the lake. Well the way up here you have restaurants and the view of the surroundings is beautiful as you have those rices fields going down the mountains.
