Hampi Hospete Tour Packages

The then capital of the Vijayanagar Empire, Hampi, by some accounts, was considered to be the world’s second-largest city during the 1500 AD. However, it began to fall out of importance over the next few centuries and that left the current city of Hampi with marvellous ancient architectural ruins and exceptionally beautiful religious sites that can easily be covered in a Hampi tour itinerary. These ruins contribute majorly to city tourism as they are some of the most important tourist places in Hampi and are included in almost all Hampi tour packages available online at Veena World.
These ruins offer an opportunity for some of the most stunning and picturesque sightseeing spots in all of Karnataka, and arguably the whole of South India. But that’s not it, the terrains in the city play an equally important role as major tourist places in Hampi and contribute largely to city tourism. After all, Hampi does have an extraordinary topography! Surrounded by numerous boulders of various sizes, the view of the city from atop these boulders is nothing short of surreal! Besides, it takes little to no effort for climbing them. However, if climbing some of those seems a little challenging, rest assured, your efforts are going to be incredibly fruitful!
