Amarkantak is located 120km away from Bilaspur in a hilly tropical area populated by monkeys. The monkeys are everywhere you look – on the side of the road, into town, on the trees, above the houses, on the rocks in the river, visiting the local attractions. Although regulations prohibit the feeding of monkeys, monkey feeding seems to be one of the top tourist activities in the area. Due to the general absence of waste baskets, Smelling the delicious peel, a monkey approached me, hissing, ready to pounce. Later I decided to pose for a picture with the monkey.
