The intriguing history, architecture, and culture of Hampi, one of the most recognised UNESCO World Heritage sites in India, may be experienced firsthand with one of our Hampi Karnataka trip packages. Hampi is a small village in northern Karnataka that is famous for the many 14th-century temples, palaces, and monuments it contains.
Our tour packages provide something for everyone, regardless of your interests or tastes. Our trip packages can be customised to suit your interests, whether in history, architecture, or culture.
The first stop on tour is the Hampi Bazaar, a lively marketplace where visitors may purchase souvenirs, clothing, and other goods made in the area. The next stop is the renowned Virupaksha Temple, one of the holiest sites in Hampi and devoted to the Hindu god Shiva. The temple's spectacular architecture and detailed sculptures have made it famous.
The Vittala Temple is a stunning shrine to Vishnu, and our tours always stop there. The temple's musical pillars are a unique attraction, and they play a variety of tones when tapped. The Lotus Mahal, a palace with a beautiful blend of Hindu and Islamic architectural elements, will also be on your itinerary.
In addition to the temples and palaces, our tours also take you to the Hampi waterfalls, where you can unwind and recharge in the middle of the region's stunning scenery. Sunsets on the Tungabhadra River, which may be seen from a coracle ride, are spectacular.
Hampi in Summer- The summer months of Hampi go from March to May. Heat indexes in the 40s are common at this time of year, making sightseeing challenging for visitors.
If you can handle the heat, though, you may be able to locate fewer tourists and lower hotel rates. Sunscreen, caps, and lots of water are all things you should bring with you to survive the day under the hot sun.
Hampi in Monsoon- Throughout June through September, Hampi has its monsoon season. Heavy rain falls in the region at this time of year, increasing the risk of flooding and landslides. Many of the temples and ruins may have been closed during this time.
On the other hand, if you appreciate nature, you can visit Hampi when the Tungabhadra River is at its peak, and the vegetation is at its lushest. You should prepare for the possibility of rain by packing an umbrella and making other travel arrangements.
Hampi in Winter-The months of November through February are considered winter in Hampi. With temperatures averaging around 15 degrees Celsius and rarely dropping below 30 degrees Celsius, this is the greatest time of year to visit Hampi.
Hampi's remains are open for exploration without danger, and the surrounding area is lush with flowers and blue skies. This is also the busiest time of year for tourists, so planning for lodging and entertainment is essential.
By Air- Jindal Vijaynagar Airport is around 40 kilometres from Hampi and is the closest airport for those travelling by air. Still, it's a tiny airport with few flight options.
