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. By using our Hampi travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Matanga Hill and other attractions in Hampi.
Matanga Hill reviews
Wonderful place for sunset ans sunrise. However the path uphill is risky in patches. Not recommended with kids below 5.

This is the place best to view the sunrise. its quite a walk but once you reach the top the view is amazing. When you visit this place during the morning the walk will be pleasant, rather doing it...

Matanga Hill is one of the best places to visit in Hampi. As well as being steeped in rich history, this location offers panoramic vistas over the extraordinary landscapes below. Furthermore, many know Matanga Hill as one of the best sunrise and sunset spots in Hampi. It’s hard to miss Matanga Hill when you arrive in Hampi. The towering mound of boulders is both alluring and mysterious. A moderate 30-minute climb leads you to the peak, where the ruins of a small temple reside. Here is the ideal spot to watch the sunrise or sunset.
It is the highest peak of Hampi and gives incredible views from the top of the hill. It's a must visit place in Hampi. The trek to the top of the hill is worth every effort. It gives a 360 degree view of the half destroyed Hampi. The roof top of the Veerabhadra Temple is the ideal place for sunrise and sunset in Hampi. This was a heritage of Sage Mathanga of the mythology Ramayana. Just visit a bit early as this place is normally flooded with tourists...
