Tungabhadra River, Hampi

(4.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Hop inside a coracle ferry and admire the smooth rocks and boulders of Tungabhadra River, a popular tourist destination near the ruins of Hampi. View paddy fields and reservoirs on the banks of the river, and visit a huge temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman on the top of the hill overlooking the river valley. Explore the ancient network of canals and aqueducts, which criss-cross the area. While the water here looks calm, unexpected and dangerous undercurrents make swimming a no-no. A visit to Tungabhadra River represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hampi trip builder to plot your vacation.
