Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary


Set up to protect the forest and its inhabitants, the mona monkeys, this community-run sanctuary makes for a fun excursion. The monkeys, revered by the villagers, are habituated and readily come to feed off the hand of visitors. Early in the morning and late in the afternoon, they can be seen roaming the village. Visits to the sanctuary are by tour, arranged at the visitor centre.
