Explore Hampi – Cycling and Camping Tour | Planned The Unplanned
The Lonely Planet describes Hampi as – “A fantasy world of rocks and ruins”.
Well, it’s more real than fantasy, a world that was once covered with richness and grandeur now lies as a devastated beauty.
Hampi is one of the World Heritage Sites that has been declared by UNESCO and is located on the banks of the Tungabhadra River. This city has a very rich history as it was one of the largest cities back in its day. It was even the capital of the Vijayanagar Empire.
Currently, the city is divided into halves: the hippie island and the heritage sites.
So, if you are interested in ancient Indian history and knowing about how the old world worked, this is the place for you to explore.
With places such as Vittala Temple and the Virupaksha Temple, your entire curiosity will be well nurtured as you explore its ancient streets on a bicycle. You will be surrounded by beautiful structures of architecture that have so many stories hidden within their stone walls. These sites also prove to be great places for taking pictures – thanks to the sheer beauty of all the structures present there.
To cater the needs of your adventurous soul, we shall guide you to the hippie island that’s on the other side of the river. Riding on your moped, you’ll surely have a thrilling experience while exploring the painted walls and the fancy cafes that will completely blow your taste-buds!
So join us on a visit to this spectacular place that is going to be a blend of culture, history, panoramic views and a lot of fun!
