A two-week trip to one of the world’s most beautiful and largest bouldering areas. It goes to south India to the small idyllic village of Hampi. For some Hampi is interesting because of its Unesco World Heritage Site, others indulge in their hippie existence in Hampi and we travel to the green oasis to pay due attention to Hampis boulders. Every year the best climbers from all over the world make a pilgrimage to Hampi over the winter months and we are there as well!
In addition to its palm trees, temples and rice fields, Hampi is distinguished above all by its rocks, which can be found here as scattered to millions.
This tour is organized and accompanied by Sarah. She has been living in India for several years, is a yoga teacher and is very familiar with the local conditions.
In Hampi we meet the two local boys Tom and Jerry. Both grew up in Hampi and are not only excellent climbers, but know (almost) every route here and can climb them!
We will stay in comfortable huts under palm trees on Hampi Island, a backpacker paradise with cozy cafes and restaurants and of course within walking distance to the boulders.
In Hampi it gets very warm during the day and so we will go for bouldering every morning and in the evening. In between there is time for relaxation, excursions and regeneration. Sarah will also offer daily yoga classes to compensate.
A visit to Hanuman Temple at sunrise and a trip to the nearby lake are a must.
There will also be a two-day tour to Goa to the sea. Because the rocks in Hampi are sharp and demanding, some rest in between is quite beneficial.

About The Region
From November to March it is pleasantly warm, if not hot and you only need light clothing. On the beaches of Goa you can swim in normal swimwear. From March, temperatures will rise and it will be humid, so you will sweat a lot and should pay attention to drink enough. From June to the end of September is the rainy season and many seasonal accommodations and restaurants have closed. It rains quite heavily during this time.
Especially in the rice fields, care must be taken care of poisonous snakes and they should not be entered with loose footwear.
Our accommodations during the tours are typical and simple guesthouses, homestays or hotels with air conditioning in 2 to 3 star categories. They are clean, located in a quiet location, mostly with balcony.
