Wonderful view of hampi and river. One of the best sunset point. You have to be careful a bit while climbing one or two slippery rock.

Weel its the place where Lord Sugreev hide from Bali during the Ranayana days. Its probably the topmost point in Hampi and one can visualise the complete Hampi ruins and also can take unbeleivable pictures.

Beautiful hill range along with huge boulders, paddy fields along side, tiny village set up, everything together represents a hidden gem of the country.
