Tungabhadra River, Hampi

4.3
#2 of 6 in Parks in Hampi
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.

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.
