Rock climbing in Hampi

The area around Hampi is full of boulders, which are fragments of huge rocks that were once a mountain. A lot of people enjoy the unique boulders, especially rock climbers. Climbers from all over the world come to train on the rocks in Hampi.

We also experienced climbing with the great Tom&Jerry climbing shop.
Anyone can climb, even my brother Guy. All it takes is climbing shoes, chalk powder to prevent moisture hands (caused by sweating) and a thick mattress to fall or jump on when needed.
