Matanga Hill, Hampi

4.8
#1 of 6 in Parks in Hampi
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.

    It is the highest point of Hampi. A must visit place for shutterbugs. Panaromic view of Hampi Bazaar and Virupaksha temple from this hill will give breathtaking view. Perfect place to witness Sunrise ...  more »

    I came to Hampi to climb in fairly Rocky physical fitness is needed, but if the views can not be omitted. If you look at a view from the top is no matter how hard it blows away. So really just climbing on the rocks between the advance preparations, such as (shoes) and resolution is required. If I go to watch the sunset in the back even 10 minutes not careful and quite dangerous.

Where to stay in Hampi

You'll find a number of simple guesthouses and homestays located in Hampi itself, primarily in the Hampi Bazaar district. North and south of the river, they offer comfortable rooms in modest former residential buildings. Further afield, a selection of more upmarket resorts and hotels sit on the banks of the river and the nearby lake to the northwest. Many visitors choose to stay in Hosapete, to the southwest, or the small town of Kamalapur, located just south of Hampi. Both offer a greater range of accommodations than Hampi, including hotels, resorts, and hostels.
