Day 1

We started our journey from Pune. It took almost 9 hours to reach Dandeli. Dandeli was our first stop. Beautiful resort, roads covered with canopies of trees.
Our resort was in the forest, we lived in tent which was surrounded by large evergreen trees. Had a gala time here!

Day 6

Left for Badami. It is a very small village. It took 5-6 hours to reach Badami from Hampi.
Was awestrucked by the beauty of the rocks!

Left on the same day to come back home with tons of information and memories. Hampi is truly a paradise for backpackers and history lovers. Safe for female solo backpackers. This village has lovely and helpful  people. I m surely going on a backpack tour to Hampi supersoon. Its a beautiful place one must visit once in a lifetime!
