Bhadravati - a convenient stop after a long day of riding

On the road between Bhadravati and Hampi, another random tea stop that turned out to be a multiple hour eat and talk fest

Typical road scene in central Karnataka. Where is all the traffic?

The small town of Hampi is backpackers paradise, in fact it is honoured with the title to be number one attraction in India in my current Lonely Planet

Hampi is a small settlement but is surrounded by a large area of boulders. And within these boulders there are lots and lots of ancient ruins. Temples, houses, palaces. And also lots and lots of tourists.

I was fortunate enough to arrive in Hampi during their annual festival. It made it somehow difficult to find accommodation but provided lots of extra entertainment such as light shows and live music.

Some of the boulders feature important messages.

The town of Badami is famous for it's cave temples hewn into the sandstone cliffs.

The small village of Ayole is scattered around ancient temple ruins and at the foot of a fortified hill, a great destination for explorers of ruins. All of it free of charge and without a map or any signposting.
