New Year at Hampi – Heritage Trek, Cycling and Camping

Sunday 08:00 PM - Hampi · Hampi · Bangalore



What better place to celebrate the arrival of the New Year, than the glorious heritage city of Hampi, under the open skies dancing to the tunes of the local musicians as you get transported to a different era altogether. Awaken the hippie in you and simply live for the moment as we welcome a new era. Because as they say, ‘Don’t worry, be Hampi!’

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. 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!

All the history and culture buffs, get ready because your time is here. We will take an early morning ferry to the heritage side of Hampi, and you guys are in for a treat!

This temple is dedicated to Shiva, Pampa and Bhuvaneshwari and also has a very serene pavilion situated within the structure. We will then head to the Vitthala temple via Mathanga hills. This temple is house to the legendary Stone Chariot which is the symbol of Karnataka tourism.
