Hi ,

I went to Hampi last month in my Innova. The road from Bangalore to Chitraduga is really good, most of it is 4 lane . Road from Chitradura to Hoskote is 2 lane and bad at some places .

If you want to break journey then Chitradurga ( 200KM from Bangalore)is a good place.

Hospet is the nearest town to Hampi and you should find an accomodation there. I stayed at a place called Hotel Shanbag ( spellling could be wrong) , which is an average hotel in the middle of the city. Tariff was about 600 I guess.

I had a friend living in Hospet for a couple of years...I tooks the opportunity and rode up there twice on my RX.....the chitradurga route was really good even though at that point some of the highway was still under construction. NH 13 was a lot of fun on the bike.

CNU,rejika,

Thanks for the info.

Yes I am planning to take Shanbaugh hotel for accomodation.

rejika,

BTW, how much time you took for B'lore to Hampi/Hospet. How many days you do stayed. Did you visited Badami Cave temples(150 kms from Hospet)

TIA & regards

Suryam
