A rustic stone stairway leads up Matanga Hill, culminating in one of the most memorable views imaginable. The vista spreads 360 degrees across the lush valley of banana plantations, with tall palm trees contrasting against rocky hills, and ancient ruins scattered across the scene. Admire Achyuta Raya’s Temple complex to the east, the river to the north, the historic city of Hampi in the west, and the winding cart trail leading south. Time your arrival right and you could enjoy a colorful sunset or crisp sunrise from atop the hill.

Matanga Hill Reviews
We went to watch sunset and whole views of entire Hampi... reaching the top little difficult but worthy.. there are steps and signs of directions only in some parts. Slippery and scary in some parts..... more »
If you love to see sunrises than this is must place, start early by 5 am as it takes nearly 30 mins to reach the top, be careful of the hundredths of millipedes on the way up more »
I saw the sunset here, but it was spectacular. All of them are rocky rocky mountains, so you have to climb up carefully. At the summit there is an observatory where you can see the whole of the tugue. When I gaze quietly at the glow, I become happy without knowing it. If you come down from here, the exercise effect will be bigger and healthier.
What a experience. Humpi is a must visit place. Matanga hill is beautiful. One should go for sunrise. After trekking sunrise feels more beautiful. Just be careful at the time of trekking path becomes slippery after rains.
