Alas Kedaton Monkey Forest and Sanctuary ('Obyek Wisata Alam Alas Kedaton' in its local designation) is located in the village of Kutuh in the district of Marga, Tabanan, approximately 25km northeast of Denpasar, the island’s provincial capital city, and 4.5km from Tabanan. The small forest of 12ha is inhabited by hundreds of grey long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis).
Alas Kedaton Monkey Forest is easily regarded as the island’s ‘other monkey forest’ after the most prominent and often visited Ubud Monkey Forest with its band of monkeys. Kedaton is rather off the beaten track as it is located quite far from the main tourist destinations of the island. Read More...
