Already facing extinction and I've seen this at this site B :)

It's a fairly easy walk up steps to the monastery (it was when I was 50 anyway) with good views of the slope below. Photographed Shaheen here too which gives some idea of the viewing from the top.

Did you actually see them at the monastery? I went to the monastery and climbed the mountain too, but don't recall seeing any langurs.

Yes, saw them from the top as we looked down.

Must have been lucky and had no idea at the time, how rare they were, they look like the 'Spectacled' (Dusky) Langurs in Malaysia.
