In the early evening, you will drive to the nearby town of Hospet where you will check into the Krishna Palace Hotel and spend the night.
Leaving early the next morning, you will spend the day with your guide discovering some of Hampi’s most famous ruins. Explore the impressive Royal Enclosure, with its expansive halls, elegantly carved stone plinths and pillared shrines before driving to the iconic Lotus Temple and the impressive Elephant Stables. After watching the sunset from one of the elevated viewing points, you will be transferred back to Hospet for your second night at the Krishna Palace Hotel.
After breakfast on the final morning, you will check out of the hotel and drive back to Goa. There will be a chance to stop for a drink and something to eat along the way.
