Matanga Hill, Hampi

(4.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
A rustic stone stairway leads up Matanga Hill, culminating in one of the most memorable views imaginable. The vista spreads 360 degrees across the lush valley of banana plantations, with tall palm trees contrasting against rocky hills, and ancient ruins scattered across the scene. Admire Achyuta Raya’s Temple complex to the east, the river to the north, the historic city of Hampi in the west, and the winding cart trail leading south. Time your arrival right and you could enjoy a colorful sunset or crisp sunrise from atop the hill.

  • We went to watch the sunset. So do up to close at autorikisha, up rocky staff. Apparently 360 Hampi looked around and into the rock and rock landscape. Sunset in India is very heavily dyed to sunset rock, was very beautiful. This is a place you want to visit.
