At Shivaganga, (near Tumkur) monkeys are to be seen everywhere. They're always looking for food and rampant enough to snatch bags, covers or anything that looks to them as containing food.
When we drove to Shivaganga early in the morning, the monkeys were huddled up and asleep near the entrance. It wasn't much of a bother while climibing this rocky mountain. On way back though, the monkeys were all around snatching food and astonishingly fearless of humans.
