On the banks of the River Tungabhadra is Hampi, an erstwhile seat of power and capital of the once mighty Vijayanagara Empire. Ruins of a lost empire and monuments that are still standing are a mute testimony of an era bygone.
Just 15 Km from Hampi is the Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary that boasts of a healthy population of sloth bears. The rugged terrain is ideal for these animals that feed off wild fruits, termites and honey and take refuge in caves and crevices.
The Sloth Bear Heritage Resort set in rustic natural environs adjoining the sanctuary strikes a chord with nature. At Hampi, one can taste a heady concoction of adventure and awe inspiring creations garnished with heritage trails and nature walks.
