And one LONG weekend! That’s Hampi for you, folks!
Hampi for us is our second home, there is a different connection altogether with this place of rocks and greens. Be in the present moment, with no network for the majority of the time you are left with the best thing one can get ie NEW TRAVEL STORIES from all around the world with all kinds of people.
Hampi is an ancient village located on the banks of River Tungabhadra in Karnataka. It is recognised by UNESCO as one of the World Heritage Sites in India.Standing within the ruins of the Vijayanagara Empire, it was renowned because of its immense wealth, flourishing art, literature and trade in ancient times. Now, the ruins of Hampi are captivating and unreal and are sure to leave you breathless, with stacks of giant boulders resting carelessly, blue skies with popcorn clouds and green paddy fields.
