How To Reach Hampi
Hampi is one of the archaeological sites of ancient India’s empires. The world heritage site, beside the Tungabhadra River, aptly called 'the group of monuments' is one of the most acclaimed tourist destinations of Karnataka. Located in the east central part of Karnataka, quite close to the state of Andhra Pradesh, Hampi is easily accessible from the nearest town of Hosapete, once called Hospet. The easiest way to reach Hampi is to travel to Hosapete by train and then continue your journey by road.
The nearest Airport is the Hubli Airport, about 160 km away. The other alternative is to take a flight to Kempegowda International Airport at Bengaluru and then take the Hampi Express train to Hospet and then hit the road to Hampi from Hospet. Bengaluru is well connected by air to most major cities in India and caters to International flights, too.
The nearest railway station is at Hospet, about 13 km from Hampi. You have a good choice of several long distance trains like the Hampi Express (Hubli-Mysuru), or Garib Nawaz (Bengaluru–Ajmer), that halt enroute at Hospet. From Hospet you can take a bus to Hampi. Buses turn up at the Hospet railway station, so you don't have to walk to the main bus stand. You have direct train connections to Hospet from major cities including Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Kerala, Delhi and Goa.
KSRTC buses run from major cities in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Goa and Andhra Pradesh to Hospet. From Hospet KSRTC terminus, you can take a rickshaw or a bus to the main bus stand, from where you can find a bus to Hampi. You could also drive from Bengaluru to Hampi through Chitradurga-Hospet or through Ballary-Ananthapur route.
