Overview

Situated on the banks of River Tungabhadra, Hampi is one of the most amazing UNESCO world heritage sites in India. This place is a melting pot of different cultures across the world. Hampi is a place where people come to chill (just like Goa, although it is way different in all aspects), exchange the learnings and go back with loads of pleasant memories. The today's ruins Of Hampi is actually the Heritage Of Kishkindha, the kingdom of the Vanara king Sugriva from Ramayana.
Solitude lovers and photography enthusiasts would love to stroll around more than 20 ancient heritages, hill tops and some extremely dramatic sunsets. Well, our words will not be able to do justice with the actual experience of Hampi.
