The landscape around Hampi is amazing and varied and offers plenty of opportunity for exploration and good old chilling. All pictures below were taken in Hampi's immediate surroundings.
On a swing with a view to a lush meadow at the very famous Mango Tree restaurant.
The walk to the Mango Tree Restaurant goes through a banana plantation. In Scandinavia we don't see many bananas on the trees, so this is very exotic for me. Had to check out a bunch of bananas up close.
And here I am examining a banana heart, the flower which given time will turn into an entire bunch of bananas.
I love this scene. A group of sadhus (holy men) doing their laundry on the roof of an ancient temple.
One of the very many ruined temples around Hampi set in a landscape of rolling hills, huge boulders, palm trees and banana plantations.
