First day at Virupapur Gaddi (other side of Hampi across Tungabhadra river) around afternoon hours we hire bicycle for half day for Rs. 50/- only but soon we realised we need machine for next coming days. Second day we started enquiring about scooter hire charges. Finally we finalizedÂ Srinivas Scooter Hire Service outside Funky Monkey Restaurant.
TVS Scooty was the choice. Rs. 250/- (excluding petrol) for 24 hours after bargain. We kept scooter at our guest house even at night.
(Petrol station is approx. 6 km from Virupapur Gaddi opposite the entrance of Anegundi village)
TVS Scooty was perfect except once during returning from Hospet the vehicle broke-down near Bandi Harlapur but soon we found a two wheeler service shop. Saleem – The owner clean the carburetor and also fixed loose battery wire. He charged Rs. 50/- for the service.
Please note: Hire scooter entry is not allowed at Hampi. One has to hire bicycle or auto for Hampi tour.
The advantage of hiring scooter at Virupapur Gaddi is – You may ride till Sanapur Lake, Waterfall, Anjana Hill, Anegundi village and many more tourist location which is nearby except entry at Hampi.
In-short thoroughly enjoyed TVS Scooty. The best way to ride around Virupapur Gaddi.
