Let's time travel to experience the legacy of one of the India's most ancient & prosperous kingdoms of Vijayanagara - The Hampi :)
Words cannot explain the wonder that is Hampi, so let's experience in our own Muddie way! ;-) While we revel at the history, we are gonna camp on the other side of the river - Hippie Island flocked by hippies with scenic rice fields everywhere. What more? the campfire, social hours in the night, hot delicious dinner served at the campsite & a dip at the lake...all of them to quench your thirst for an exciting weekend!
The beautiful sun-rise & sun-set are just icing on the cake ;-)
Day 0 (Friday night): Start from Bangalore around 9 PM (4 pick up points - Tin Factory, Indiranagar, Koramangala, Guraguntepalya metro station)
Day 1 (Saturday): Reach Hampi campsite, freshen up & breakfast, start the Heritage Walk along the banks of the river Tungabhadra towards the monuments/temples like Varaha temple, Sule Bazar, the magnificent Vittal temple etc. Break for lunch in the middle at a famous Hampi cafe. Visit Virupaksha temple and have a nice sunset view at Virupaksha hill. Come back to campsite, freshen up, dinner along with Campfire (if it doesn't rain at that moment) & a social gathering at night ;-)
Day 2 (Sunday): Start the day with breakfast, enjoy the cool breeze of the pristine Sanapur Lake - take a dip if you wish to (Muddie Trails will provide few life jackets), go on a coracle ride on the lake (optional - self sponsored), take lots of selfies, relax and rejuvenate . Drive to the base of the Anjanadri hill (Hanuman's birth place) & hike up the hill on the northern banks of Tungabhadra river, relax & enjoy the amazing sunset, get back to campsite late in the evening, enjoy hot dinner & start back to Bangalore around 10 PM

Terms, Conditions, Policies (Strictly followed)
By paying the registration fee I am giving my unconditional acceptance of the below policies of Muddie Trails:
1. No alcohol & smoking during Treks & adventure activities & travelling. There would be separate window and space (usually at night) to have drinks at campsite/resort/hotel for interested people. 2. We assure awesome memories every trip, but not awesome facilities! No Luxury. We provide basic facilities in terms of food, travel & accommodation. In some places, especially for treks & forest related Meetups, expect not so neat wash rooms/change rooms, and basic but edible food :) 3. We wouldn’t want to waste time in sitting at a restaurant and munch our food for hours during trips. This wastes our precious time. So we pack our food whenever possible to avoid un-necessary delays. For the meetups where food is included in overall package (breakfast/lunch/dinner), it is expected to place an order at restaurant/dhaba for up to 120/- per person. Above this, the extra amount would be borne by the individual. We usually sit together in groups (veg & non-veg separately) and order food together. 3. In some Meetups, especially treks involving wild forest, expect leeches and other insects. However we can take precautions to avoid them - we discuss these things in our trip's WhatsApp group. 4. Our itinerary is flexible. It may happen we do not cover all the places mentioned in the itinerary because of unpredictable reasons like weather, wild animal presence, abrupt blocking of sites by forest department, delay in travel because of group itself, traffic conditions etc. In most cases, if the time permits, we try to travel to an alternative place. But in some cases, we may have to skip a place altogether. 5. Absolutely no littering during our travels. We swear to protect our environment. 6. Please co-operate with the organizer in following the schedule set for the day (especially getting up and getting ready in the morning). This will ensure we won't miss out on the real fun part - that is travelling.

In this case, the Organizer will plan for alternate trek/trip. If this is not possible then Muddie Trails will refund the remaining amount after removing the travel cost.
Refund policy: -Full refund if you make a request before 3 days of the trip/event. -50% refund within 3 days and before 24 hours from trip/event start time. -No refund within 24 hours from the trip/event start time & after trip started.
