Hampi is a heady mix. It is a cocktail of the most unlikely ingredients thrown together. It is definitely a window to a glorious past, rightly famous for its intricate carvings and the legends. But there is so much more to Hampi. The moment you hit the periphery, you are spellbound by the landscape. You will witness some very beautiful and heart warming initiatives taken for the community by the community. Add to this an agricultural setting and you have a vacation you will not forget in a long long time.

  • We are trying to explore a bygone era but we are not doing only monuments. The idea is to also explore the natural beauty of Hampi. 
  • You will need more than a fortnight to cover every monument in this circuit, so we have curated some of the most important and interesting set of monuments for you, giving you a contrast between different architectures and dynasties
  • ATM in Anegundi and Hampi are not always working due to network issues.
  • There will be a lot of walking involved, as exploring the ruins and the heritage sites could happen quite at length. Each Heritage site sometimes is spread across a vast area and so could end up taking a lot of time with us standing and listening to the history or taking a stroll around the complexes.

Hampi, Nov 2017

The Hampi trip was my first experience of a Women’s only group trip and I am glad that I chose F5 for the same. The trip was well planned and every aspect of it was taken care of. Food, accommodation, travel and sightseeing. Our trip lead Sindhu was an amazing lead to travel with and she was capable of paying immense attention to the needs and requests of every member of the group. What I liked the most is that F5 had chosen to work with trustworthy and polite partners to work with (Driver, Accommodation Manager, Tour guide etc) with whom F5 has been associated for a long time. That ensured a safe travelling experience for all the women travelers. Also, the fact that the itinerary was very diversified and focused on providing different kinds of experience in a single trip was a great decision. I was expecting only a tour of the temple town and sightseeing of its architecture but including other locations and activities was a pleasant variation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In a nutshell all I could say is that I would love to travel with F5 again. Thank you F5, until we meet again on another trip at another time.

It was a very good weekend trip – a gathering of random but well meaning and cheerful souls! Surprisingly everyone got along very well. Good homestay, excellent food, smart local guide and plenty of places to see. To top it all , our tour lead was fantabulous. A very capable and smart girl.
