Badami & Hampi - Explore, Cycle and Rock Climb | Plan The Unplanned
Hampi is the town which was once ruled by the Vijayanagara Empire. It is one of the UNESCO recognized World Heritage Sites in India. The place is one of India’s most known archaeological destinations. The town of Hampi is in a secluded area, with royal residences, temples, towers, roads, and statues, all spread over a massive area. The heritage site is located near the River Tungabhadra. It was once the imperial capital of the Vijayanagar Empire and even if the structures are already centuries-old, they still remain stunning. We shall explore through picturesque valleys intersected by the river. We’ll cycle down the trail through mythical landscapes imbued with the presence of Gods, Goddesses and Heroes linked with ancient legends. Call the cyclist in you – because you will experience stretches that’ll challenge your limits, sceneries that’ll indulge your senses and interactions with the locals that’ll expose you to their culture and way of life.
Badami is an ancient town situated in the Bagalkot district of Karnataka. Badami was the capital of the Chalukya Dynasty that ruled over the most parts of peninsular India. Situated at an average elevation of 1922 ft above the sea level at the mouth a ravine, Badami is tucked in between two rugged sandstone outcrops. This town lies surrounding the 5th century Agastya Tirtha Lake, a holy lake famous for the healing property of its water.
