Hampi day 4

Hampi with Nandini

During our last day in Hampi we decided to walk over to the opposite side of the river and trek towards Anegundi, an old village some 10km's away. After getting stuck and being saved by a circular boat, we passed through farmland and backcountry before arriving at the most beautiful riverbank full of birds, cows and temples.

We are about to board a circular boat, paying 400 rupees for passage 1km up the river. When you are rescuing people you can pretty much demand whatever price you want.

Everywhere you walk in nature there are signs of an old civilization. The dots you can see on the rocks to the right are small holes made to break them apart.
Under a magical tree a small girl was standing waiting for her mother. If you have wishes you hang something on the tree and the tree will give it to you.
