The walk up the hill was very tiring, so wear good shoes if you're gonna walk up the hill. Keep in mind that cars are not allowed to drive up the hill between 16.00-19.00 (because people are exercising). If you bring food to feed the...More

Monkeys were free and funny. Better no touch them because they seems a bit dangerous cause they are wild. They look for meal . I like because is a different place and you can notice the human are not the unique in world.

Take some bananas with you (which you can get at the tip of the hill) and enjoy watching the monkeys grabbing and eating ... also, be careful with your belongings :)

By bike you can only visit till 6pm, I think. Then the ramp closes but you can still walk - it's not a short one. Also, when darkness falls, the monkeys retreat to the forest and you cant see them.
