Really amazingly beautiful area (except for the crowds). Start the hike by 8-9 to stay ahead of the crowds. Be orepared to hike 3 miles on a paved trail. once you get to the monkey area, if you dont see monkies, you are too early. They come out hen the crowd starts to arrive hooong for food. They will steal your water bottles and food. They are amazing to watch though. Whike this is an amazing beautiful natural area, expect food and souviener vendors the whole walk there.
