The best time to visit from October to June. Have a snooze, continue relaxing within these naturals’ environments, and take a walk through the woodland, sight crocodiles basking in the sun and flocks of beautiful water birds as you float down the River Kali in a coracle. Witness the miracle of a butterfly. A giant spider's web or a blade of grasses each an inscription of hope. Overnight at the resort.

Dandeli – Pattadakal – Aihole – Badami 167 Kms

After breakfast a scenic journey by road from Dandeli to Badami en route visit to Pattadakal 29 kms away from Badami An escarped visit to nearly Pattadakal - a world heritage center, it has 10 major temples representing early chaluyan architecture, where coronations took place and where most of the temples were built between the 7th and 9th centuries. The Virupaksha, Malikarjuna and join Temples are quite marvelous to behold included is a visit to Aihole which is 46 kms away from Badami where the Hindu temples architecture can be seen in its embryonic stage -50 temples within the fort wall and 50 outside.

Our drive continue to Badami set in beautiful countryside’s of the four of a red sandstone ridge the small rural town of Badami was once the capital of the Chalukya Empire which covered much of central Deccan between the 4th and 8th centuries Badami, renowned for its 4 ancient rock-cut Caves, replete with carved pillars and bracket figures, all hewn out of red sandstone on the precipice of a hill. The largest of them is the third cave, dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The first sculptural embellishment to dazzle the eye is the 18-armed Nataraja, striking 81 dance poses, in the first cave. Overlooking the caves is the Agastya Theertha Tank, its banks dotted with a cluster of Bhoothanatha temples. Overnight stay in Badami

Badami – Hampi 145 Kms

After breakfast drive to Hospet is your base to explore the spectacular Vijaynagar ruins in the afternoon a visit to Hampi itself only 13 km away and one of the most fascinating historical sites in south India. The superb ruins are set in a strong and beautiful boulder-strewn landscape, which has an almost magical quality. One can still glimpse the splendor of Vijaynagar in its ruins where Hospet Virupaksha temple rises majestically. The most splendid monuments of Hampi are, undoubtedly the Vithala temple complex memories of Hampi will stay with you always.

Revisit Hampi – the 14th century capital city of the Vijaynagar Empire lies in the Deccan Heartland, in the state of Karnataka. The ruins spread over an area of more than 26 sq. kms. Protected by the tempestuous rive Tungabhadra in the north and by rocky granite ridges on the other three sides. A terrain such as this was excellent for a capital city that needed to be vigilant and spend a further day in the heart of the lost empire. Explore Hampi at your own pace. Its monuments- like its centuries- old patience & wisdom- most are savored bit by bit. Overnight stay

Hampi – Goa 335 Kms

On today's drive through the Hospet to Goa countryside we see villages, woman dressed in the brilliantly colored dress of the region & scenes of rural lives. Hit the beach!! Your home for 2 nights, enjoy the beach side resort.
