Hampi Walking Tour
Every stone in Hampi has a story to say . This story is best heard if you give it time and walk around from rock to rock.
The ruins are spread across a wide area so walking isn’t the best option for all the ruins. But it is recommended to visit the Virupaksha Temple , Achyurtaraya Temple and Sule Bazaar on foot and then explore the rest of the places on a bicycle/motorbike..The sightseeing places mentioned in this tour are not connected by motorable roads. The terrain is uneven and walking only is the best option.
***Don’t forget to take the Coracle ride in front of the Kondarama temple.
