It’s easy to let the days fly by walking around the main bazaar or relaxing in the tranquil backpacker hangout on the other side of the river.
But the real scenery and adventure is dotted around Hampi, accessible by scooter, bicycle or guided rickshaws.
There are countless temples and landmarks to see around Hampi. Old fortifications and ancient crumbling city walls can all be explored, many without charge. We hadn’t seen architecture on this scale since we went to Siem Reap, Cambodia!
Hampi is in the Indian state of Karnataka, east of the ever popular Goa, making visits and side excursions to Hampi easy by train or sleeper bus.
Here’s a collection of some of our photography taken during our time in Hampi. Enjoy!
