  Hampi and Tungabhadra River
by MalenaN

There are a few river crossings by small boats around Hampi. If you are in Hampi Bazaar and want to go to Virupapur Gaddi, the small quiet village on the other side of the river, you just walk down the road to the river past the Ghats (the broad stairs leading down to the river where a lot of laundry is done). Down by the river there are colourful small motorboats taking passengers over to the other side. They leave frequently and cost Rs 15 (June 2010) for foreigners and Rs 10 for locals. People also take their bikes and motorbikes on the boat. The river crossing only takes a few minutes.
