Find a vast expanse of land full of undulating hills, rock formation, and archaic temples in Hampi. Get some much-needed peace and quiet by visiting the Garuda Shrine, the Hazara Rama Temple, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Virupakshya Temple. Roam their ancient halls, marvel at the preserved status of Indian deities, and learn about the Vijayanagara Empire. Trek back to the grandeur of nature and climb to the top of Matanga Hill to access breathtaking views of the Hampi landscape. Afterwards, cool down by jumping off cliffs and taking a dip in the lake nearby. Lastly, get acquainted with the city's rural life and partake in cultural practices and activities: jam with musicians during sunset, sport some dreads at Hippie Island or circle back to a zen-like atmosphere by staying in a cottage by a rice field. Head to the south of India and wander the once ancient capital of Hampi!
