No need to say, if you dont like monkeys this is not a place for you. Don't get me wrong, the scenery is amazing, its vegetation, temple, location, history, etc is incredible but the amount of monkeys running around is too much. To the point...More

Usually not big fan to this kind of attractions. This one was made properly and was very nice. You will encounter the monkeys close by. Good signs & roads to walk. No muddy tracks. Totally recommended.

Sorry but I don’t remember. It was a lot cheaper than I anticipated. The website says IDR50,000 per adult and IDR 40,000 per child.
