Hampi is a ruined town full of monuments that were make with the local granite stones more than four centuries ago. The landscape in Hampi is very unique with thousands of huge round granite rocks. The Tungabhadra River irrigates the numerous banana fields.
Hampi village is popular with the backpacker’s community who likes to stay for weeks rather than days.
The isolation of the place together with the lack of big hotels and restaurant has allowed this peaceful village to escape mass tourist.
The Hampi's sunrises and sunsets are magic and one of the highlights to any visit to India.
The best way to see the ruins is walking or hiring a bicycle for the day. A visit to Anegondi and Monkey Temple at the other side of the river is highly recommended.
You can cross the river by taking a putti, which is a small circular basket sort of primitive boat that somehow can carry passengers, bicycle and even motorbikes without sinking.

Beautiful shot. Having the same camera makes me proud as well. I haven't been to south of India yet. But my next visit will be there, especilly Karnataka. Anyways, I think this shot needs a little contrast. TFS.

Hampi is a magic place and you show it here.
Fantastic, colorful sun and the layers of rocks are amazing.

a well-framed composition accompanied by a well-informed note... what I love the way in which the low evening light adds enigma to the pillared structure in the foreground and I can still clearly see at least 5 ridges in the background... an awesome POV... did you have to climb too much to reach there???
and just 20KB!!! please re-post a bigger version...
