  • Trip introduction

    On this adventure-packed trip to Hampi, you'll try your hand at bouldering, an adventure sport where you use your body weight to climb over a wall of boulders. Experts in the field of bouldering will be present to assist you with the activity. You'll also travel across the Tungabhadra River on a coracle, a wicker basket-type boat made from leather, plastic and bitumen. Riding around town on moped bikes, you'll also visit the Sanapur Lake and Anjaneya Hill.

    At night, you'll stay with your fellow travellers in tents pitched at a gorgeous campsite. Before leaving town, you'll also explore the rich heritage of the area by visiting the temples of Virupaksha and Vitthala.

      'We availed the services of TGN in Dec, 2018 for our trek to Kuari Pass. I must say it was a lovely experience like all the pervious ones (Valley of flowers, Hampta Pass, Kedarkahtha) we have had with TGN. We were extremely impressed with the stay at Josimath. Himalayan Abode is surely an amazing place to stay, all the rooms have tastefully done interiors and the service is really homely and top notch. Coming to the trek itself it was a lovely trek made better by the able guide provided to us and the stay in the tents at the hills was also comfortable with friendly people managing the services. Would like to give a special thanks to Venkat who has been my point of contact at TGN, for all the treks I have booked. It's always comforting to know that he would be able to come up with the best trekking options available.... '

      'I booked My first trek with these guys (Kheerganga) and it was an Awesome experience. The trek guide (Keshav Sir) was amazing. He was very Frank, A great motivator and the Best person I've met. The trek itself was amazing and had all sorts of scenic views(WaterFalls etc). The person I've contacted (Manthan Gupta) for all my booking query was also cooperative and helpful as required. The problem is just the breakfast you just Can't serve ONLY BreadJam for 16-17 KM of Trek Right ?'
