Want to climb rocks or explore hidden swimming pool areas of Hampi? We'll arrange those picnics and getaways for you and your friends to have some truly unforgettable memories.
Hampi as a World Heritage Site was recently listed as the No. 2 destination to visit on the New York Times list. Modern Hampi is today the ruins of the Vijayanagara Empire, one of the wealthiest empires of southern India and one that was instrumental in the Portguese trade with the sub-continent. For those keen on Indian lore, it is known as the birthplace of Hanuman. Hampi's ruins and topography make it one of the most unique places in the world. It offers something for everyone: the historian, the adventurer, the nature enthusiast and for those keen on just having a relaxing holiday.
When you're traveling as friends, you may want something light and fun that also lets you know the history of Hampi.

All our activities and Hampi tours are guided by locals who have experience in this or were trained by us. The rest of it goes towards our own overheads. Our vision is to open up rural India to the rest of the world, so some of it also goes towards the expansion of our own work.
