Mt. Bopa is crowded with monkeys - and they are totally spoiled by pilgrims and tourists so that they lost all shyness and can get really clinging if not aggressive for foodhunting.
Another thing is that they pee and poo everywhere, which was a very nice experience walking barefoot (on holy ground, of course) when it started to rain heavily and a yellow flood came down the stairs making it impossible to avoid contact with it. Grrrrreat!
