About Hire Benkal

One such place we visited was Hire Benkal. This is a megalith structure which some say was there the prehistoric dwarfs lived while some say it was their burial ground. Whatever it was, it's definitely not a place to go during peak summer. The roads are nonexistent if you rely on google maps and after 1 hour of riding through these nonexistent gravel roads in the blazing heat, going past several tiny villages who seemed surprised as to why we came there during this season, we finally made it.It said its a half an hours hike up to the peak where along with the dwarf houses they even had a lake. We were happy assuming we could cool off after this hot day. Well, it shouldn't have been a surprise when we did climb all the way to find out that the lake had dried out and was black as coal! On the whole an eventful day and if you do visit Hampi during monsoon or winter you should visit this place.
