If you’re not one for Christmas festivities or new year celebrations and want to spend this December a little differently than usual then, we have just the thing for you. Muddie Trails is organising a two-day-long hike to Hampi that makes for the perfect festive season getaway.
Hampi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is constantly flocked by all sorts of tourists, from backpackers to old uncles, intent on walking along its picturesque landscape scattered with monuments and boulders. This destination in Karnataka is like a rustic Rome, everywhere you turn there is a monument of a lost empire. With over 500 monuments spread out over the sprawling hills, a visit to Hampi should definitely feature in your travel plans.
The pick up point for the hike is Hyderabad. On the first day, post reaching Hampi and settling into your tents, you will head to the Anegundi Fort, which makes for the perfect photo opportunity thanks to the breathtaking backdrop. This will be followed by a visit to the Sanapur lake. After this head for Anjanadri hill and hike along northern banks of Tungabhadra river. The day is scheduled to end with a cozy evening huddled around a bonfire.Day two is comparatively less hectic with only a visit to Tungabhadra river and the famous The Vijaya Vittala temple on schedule.
