Hampi is well known for its heritage sites and the ruins of Vijayanagar Kingdom. But very few people go past these structures to discover the riches of Hampi. When we announced ‘Darter Many Worlds of Hampi’ Photography Tour, one of the intents was to introduce the facets of Hampi that is relatively less known to travelers. One such face of Hampi is its precious wildlife. In the two tours that we did to Hampi, we managed to capture a variety of birds – some commonly found and some very endemic to Hampi and not easily seen in other places. Here is a compilation of images of birds that I captured in Hampi during my visits in the months of January and February. Coming up in next post is images of heritage sites of Hampi.
Many Worlds of Hampi is a photography tour from Darter Photography Tours, a venture created by me and wildlife photographer Shreeram MV. We recently concluded two highly successful tours to Hampi. Our upcoming tours and workshop include
- Photography workshop in Bangalore on March 26th and 27th
- Mountains and Monasteries, a Photography Tour of Ladakh
