Other traveler attractions in Hampi are the Hippie village where one can stay in tents, a coracle sailing adventure in the Tungabhadra river or simply exploring the colourful handicrafts sold by the locals around Hampi Market. The cafes in Hampi serve the most delicious traditional Indian meals and the decors of these places are fascinating.
We spent few afternoons exploring the archaeological museums nearby which has extensive collection of the excavated remains of Vijayanagara Kingdom.
All these place are easily accessible by roads from Bangalore. We have taken these trips over long weekend coupled with a few leaves.
A lot more of Karnataka still remains unexplored to me. Though Karnataka does not pull a lot of global tourists, it has a lot to be explored with respect to its diverse landscapes, dense forests and wildlife and equally mesmerizing coastline. This Indian state can even be considered for any offbeat travel plans like the one we had in Didupe.
Lately, Coorg and Hampi have special mentions on various global platforms as the upcoming destinations on the world tourism map.
Note: This post contains only the destinations I have visited in Karnataka till date. The post will be updated or furnished based on my future travels
