Monkey King Valley hidden in southwest China

In southwest China's Chongqing Municipality where mountains are cut by running rivers, a group of macaques have made a hidden valley their habitat, earning the place the name: Monkey King Valley.

Macaques, under second-class state protection in China, are social animals. A group could consist of over a hundred members, arranged around a dominant female.
