What visitors say about Mathanga Hill

Mathanga Hill is the go to sunset and sunrise point of Hampi. So we went there twice in the five days we were jn Hampi. The sunset was magnificent with a 360 degree view of Hampi and its ruins, and with the hills with rounded boulders in every corner. Climbing up and down is a bit adventurous as the pathway is through pile of large boulders.
