Hampi by dawn

Sunrise Hike, Incredible views, Hidden Sculptures & Whole lotta fun!

Come with us on an adventure that unravels the beauty of Hampi as sunlight transforms the landscape.

First thing one notices when arriving to Hampi is its awe-inspiring landscape with stunning boulder strewn hills, lush green valleys, network of rivers, lakes and canals. The best way to soak in this stunning view is to hike up to one of the tallest boulder hill in the region, the golden light of early morning Sun is pure magic. From here you get a unique perspective of the landscape and crumbling ruins set amongst them. As we descend we can spot some rare species of birds that live here. In Fact this area is a birders paradise with over 300 species of birds.  We continue on to the riverside to spot stunning works of relief sculpture hidden amongst the boulder rocks, getting to these will in itself be an adventure. Later we visit the riverside ghats next to the Virupaksha temple to witness the buzz of activity as the morning unfolds. If we are lucky we will meet the resident elephant Laxmi who comes here for her daily bath, we will help her clean up.
