The Tungabhadra river separates the two ancient heritage towns – Hampi and Anegundi. The river serves as to bridge the people who want to commute betweem the two towns, ever since the man made structure collapsed a while ago.

    I did the ride on this boat almost a year back and have very fond memories. After every ride, the boatsmen clear the water that would have seeped in through the boat (not sure what it is called). Although the distance between the towns is hardly 20-30 feet, the ride takes about 20 min. Bikes can be hired, so anybody who travels to Hampi please dont miss this town Anegundi. Also at the town be prepared to buy very good handicrafts made out of banana leaves.

    The photos are stunning. The boat ride with the bike definitely looks adventurous. I can’t imagine being on it though:)

    Liked the bit about handicrafts that are made from banana leaves. In Kerala, a lot of handicrafts are made from coir but they are handmade so they are very expensive.
