All the temples are beautiful and remember to bring with you a "sarong" to cover your legs. A lot of monkeys around. Just be careful with your staff and enjoy this interaction with them.

I am generally not afraid of animals but the monkeys are a bit unpredictable. The walk is very nice but the as soon as you sit to have a rest they start to be interested in you. One jumped on my husband's shoulder which was great until it wanted to steal his dioptrical sunglasses. As he didn't want the monkey... More

There were lots of cute monkeys which keep you entertained for a while with their antics. But not so cute after they took our bottled water away.

Ok, everyone comes here for the monkeys but, the park is very beautiful itself with walk ways down in to bottom of the park where there is a stream. The monkeys are great! Well worth the trip.

I freaked out when the little guy grabbed my leg and ran up, because of my experiences with Monkeys in Kathmandu Nepal and Agra India, but the next person who he ran up was much calmer. The guy's friends all took pictures of the monkey on the man's shoulders, and had a good laugh. These are well fed monkeys who... More

Save your money and stay safe. You can see lots of monkeys by the entrance from your vehicle. Take pictures enjoy but don't interact with the monkeys. It's not a wild park it's more of zoo like area where over crowded monkeys are fed by park staff and tourists. The guy in front of us was walking with his girlfriend... More

I must start by saying - leave the monkeys alone and they will leave you alone!! Many people, me included, are put off by the thought of monkeys climbing on you , grabbing your belongings etc- and given the right opportunity , they will do just that!! This is a beautiful and interesting place to visit , but follow the... More
