It is what it is, a hill with lots of monkeys. We loved it. I had heard they can be aggressive and however much I’d urge caution we didn’t see any aggression. Lovely natured and very intelligent. Once you’ve run out of bits/bananas just show...More

Not for the faint hearted or frail as the walk is a killer. Definitely take a couple bottles of water with you. Loads of monkeys around as you climb to the top. Avoid taking snacks or food and definitely do not feed them. One guy...More

Beautiful lookout and being able to watch the monkeys just hanging out, doing what they do was much fun. My 9 yo loved it and was happy to see the monkeys out where they belong. We were the only ones on the Hill making it...More
