The coolest part about Senpar lake is cliff jumping!! To reach here from the central portion of Hampi, you will have to motorbike for over an hour through a scenic route. (Although I suspect there is a ferry service that takes motorbikes from one side of the river to another near the Virupaksha temple, which cuts the travel time to 20 minutes. But no regrets due to the view along the route).

The cliff jumping was pretty amazing. We went here twice, and the second time we also did the coracle ride which is way less cool when compared to cliff jumping 😎 #hampi
