Day 1

Hampi - Trekkers delight , Nature Lovers Abode, Historians heaven , Traveller's bucket list.

Hampi is one of the best destination one can visit any time (Except Summer) Mar to June end. Hampi offers you everything !!!!

Hampi is very connected by all means of transport , one should come to Hospet, the nearest City and then travel to Hampi via Bus ( Cheapest mode of transport) Cost me around 15rs.

We can find many stays or home stay near Virupaksha Temple the only living Temple where gods are worshiped,Most temples are in ruins as it was looted and destroyed after the war with the Bijapur Sulthanate.

The Best way to cover hampi is either by foot or cycle, One can Cover most of the places by foot.

As the Climate is humid and dry most part of the year , Better to Carry water Bottles and stay hydrated.

One can start from Virupaksha Temple , only living temple and just right in front of the temple one can see market place of hampi (Though in ruins)
