Monkeys at Batu Caves?
Batu caves is not only a place with important Hindu temples and shrines but also a place you can see a lot of monkeys! If you haven’t been to any of monkey forests or monkey sanctuary before, it will be a great opportunity for you to see monkeys at Batu Caves right in front of you like Ubud Monkey Forest!
What are monkeys at Batu Caves like?
There are 3 types of monkeys at Batu Caves. Some are very nice, and others can be not so friendly at all! Let’s find out about them!
1. Aggressive type of monkeys at Batu Caves
If you visit Batu Cave with your kids, you should stay away from them or watch them from far, not too close! These monkeys at Batu Caves can attack them since they are very territorial! Don’t feed them unless you would like to be attacked… 🙁
2. Flower-eating type of monkeys at Batu Caves
You will see these Macaque monkeys eating flowers! Actually, I found it very funny since the long name of these monkeys is called Crab-eating Macaque, but they were eating flowers instead! They are not as threatening as number 1 type of Macaque. You can relax when you meet these flower-eating monkeys at Batu Caves! 🙂
3. Chilled monkeys at Batu Caves
These monkeys at Batu Caves are my favorite ones. They are just into their own world and they don’t seem too much care about people. They are just very chilled. These chilled monkeys changed my stereotype of monkeys which tend to be too playful or too hostile.
Now you learn about 3 types of Monkeys at Batu Caves! So it’s time for you to enjoy spending time with them while you are “climbing” up to the top of 272 stairs in Batu Caves! 🙂
