Entering Ubud's Sacred Monkey Forest only requires that you go down Jalan Monkey Forest Road; at its most southerly, downhill end (about 0.75 mile from the Ubud Royal Palace and Warung Ibu Oka), the road will take a turn east; the entrance to the forest stands at this junction.

Pay IDR 20,000 (US$2) at the entrance, and proceed down the footpath to walk into the heart of the forest. The paths through the forest are paved, but the vegetation is rather lush somewhat claustrophobic. At this point, the monkeys are less seen, more heard: you can hear their chattering in the trees, and if you're paranoid you'll feel somewhat surrounded. Luckily as you proceed further south, you'll encounter a clearing and the first of the Monkey Forest's buildings.
Apart from the monkeys, the forest holds about 115 species of trees, along with numerous species of birds, squirrels, and lizards. Some of the trees hold particular value in Balinese ritual.
