The monastery of Wat Tham Pha Mak Ho lies about 30 km south of Loei. Protected by the monks, hundreds of rhesus monkeys live here and wait for visitors to distribute nuts.
It is already fascinating to see the fast-reacting monkeys when someone throws food on the place. More keep coming from the surrounding woods.
A dog also mixes with the crowd and tries to catch the one or other bite.
The alpha males always secure the best place in the middle, while mothers with the offspring stay rather on the edge and wait. But there is enough food.
Because some monkeys observe the hustle and bustle from the surrounding trees without taking part in the action. Others continue their own game.
It is nice to see that the monkeys show no aggressive behavior.
We observe the nice rhesus monkeys for a while. Then continue to the Huay Nam Man, the Huay Krating Mountain Lake. It is an idyllic crater lake in the nearby mountain.
