On this Hampi Village Life Tour we will experience the different aspects of local life in village communities around the UNESCO world heritage site. This tour will give you a chance to learn about local culture and an opportunity to enjoy the stunning natural landscapes. We will ride on mopeds, bullock cart and auto rickshaws as we explore villages, the rural countryside, farms, irrigation canals and ancient cave paintings. We will visit local tea shop, women’s handicraft organisation, village schools and temples. We will also enjoy a sumptuous home cooked meal made from fresh locally sourced ingridients.
Hampi is often called a living heritage site, this is because of some 29 villages settlements that are within the protected heritage area of Hampi. People living in these settlements are an essential part of the site and if anything enhance its cultural & spiritual significance. Even though the city of Vijayanagara was never established again after the fall of the city in mid 16th century, it continued to be a place of religious & spiritual importance. People have lived here and continued to practice agriculture using irrigation technology developed 600 - 700 years ago. There have been human settlements here for more than 5000 years evident by the abundant cave painting all over the boulder hills of Hampi. The water of river Tungabhadra has blessed this region, several species of birds and animals thrive here. The area also has the most unique and awe-inspiring landscape anywhere in the world with big boulder hills cut through by river and canals, spread between paddy fields, sugarcane fields and banana plantations.
