Matanga Hill, Hampi

(4.8/5 based on 280+ 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. Before you head to Hampi, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Hampi vacation trip planner, to make sure you see all that Hampi has to offer, including Matanga Hill.
