“Funny, relaxing, exhausting”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Well, was a really tired walk before the top, but we enjoyed the path feeding the monkeys, and taking care that they wouldn't steal our stuff.

“definitely worth the climb”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Though we had to climb about 500 odd steps to the top, it was definitely worth it. since its a little out of the way it was not too crowded, the vistas from the top was great, could see the whole of hampi laid below you & could spot most of the important places that we had already seen.Said to be the birthplace of hanuman it is also religiously important, so found a few devotees climbing the hill chanting strotras, enhancing the whole experience. lots of monkeys around so kept a stick in hand, just to scare them away, cap a must if climbing when the sun is up.
