    Karnataka in Southern India is loaded with glittering palaces, national parks, ancient ruins, beaches, yoga centres and legendary hang-outs. Karnataka hosts numerous spots ranked as the fourth most popular destination for tourism among the states of India. At its nerve centre is the capital Bengaluru (Bangalore), a progressive city famous for its craft beer and restaurant scene. Heading out of town you'll encounter the evergreen rolling hills of Kodagu, dotted with spice and coffee plantations, the regal splendour of Mysuru (Mysore), and jungles teeming with monkeys, tigers and Asia’s biggest population of elephants. It’s cultural enclave offers tranquil Hampi with hammocks, psychedelic sunsets and boulder-strewn ruins and blissful, virtually untouched coastline around Gokarna, blessed with beautiful coves and empty sands.

    HAMPI - a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 14th century temples. Chronicles left by Persian and European travellers, particularly the Portuguese. The magnificent ruins of Hampi dot an unearthly landscape that has captivated travellers for centuries. The main travellers’ ghetto has traditionally been Hampi Bazaar, a village crammed with budget lodges, shops and restaurants, and towered over by the majestic Virupaksha Temple. Tranquil Virupapur Gaddi across the river has become a new popular hang-out.

     

    Badami - The heart melting landscape accompanied by beautifully done temples and fort can easily draw the attention of the travellers from around the globe. It is the regal capital of the Badami Chalukyas from 540 to 757 AD. It is famous for its rock cut structural temples. Once the capital of the mighty Chalukya empire, today Badami is famous for its magnificent rock-cut cave temples, and red sandstone cliffs that resemble the Wild West.
