Hyderabad to Hampi

Hampi figures on tourist map of the world because of UN Heritage tag. The ruins in Hampi, which was the capital of Vijaynagara empire in 15th century AD, tell many a saga in stone. Every structure, pillar, pagoda, temple, platform, water well has a story to tell. You get transported back in time, completely in awe. You tend to get lost in time.
Ghumakkads Harsh and Neeta drove from Hyderabad to Hampi in Feb-2017 along with our friends from Germany Pramod and Helga.
Pramod and Harsh studied together at BITS Pilani in 1960s. Both couples in their sixties, bitten by the travel bug undertook this 1000-kms road trip spread over four days.

Pictures.


Here is a road map of the route taken by us. While going, we went via Kurnool and Bellary which took almost 10 hours to cover 490 kms. However, on the return leg, we took the route via Raichur which took 8 hours only and was 435 kms. Map courtesy internet.

Thanks for browsing.
