JUST AN OVERNIGHT TRIP AWAY!
One of our most scenic of run routes - the off-road trails traverse cave temples with views of rocky landscapes stretching far into the horizon. And sometimes, if you're lucky, you might spot a rainbow like we did on one of our route recces!
Running in Badami with us this October? Let us take care of your hotels, travel and local sightseeing in Badami as well as the World Heritage Site of Pattadakal next door. Stay tuned for details closer to registration launch.
Muthukrishnan Rajaram is one of our regular runners and has joined us at our runs in Bidar and Ooty earlier. We love having him at our runs as much as his tiny travel companions! After Spongebob Squarepants in Bidar, Green Lantern in Hampi and Bugs Bunny in Ooty, it was the turn of the super cute Minions to travel and rock Badami!
The early temples in Badami and Pattadakal attract tourists and heritage enthusiasts all the year round. But did you know Badami also sees visitors who come for an entirely different reason? Read about the climbing scene in Badami and much more below.
Hampi and Pattadakal are two World Heritage Sites situated hours away from each other - and both near Badami. So if you're in the region, we recommend visiting all three over the course of a couple of days.
Efforts have been made in recent years in order to establish safe climbing routes in Badami. There are around a hundred and fifty bolted routes in the area, with varying difficulties, that can challenge climbers and give them the complete experience of ascending the mountains in the centre of nature.
However great it might have been, the Battle of Vatapi (present day Badami) has hardly found mention in the history books today. But it is a tale that needs to be told.
The best part of Go Heritage Runs is that we are a series. Which means that the destinations change, but some things will always stay same - scenic, historic routes, a great family friendly experience and a fun run-vacation. Keep in touch with us and take a run-vacation with us this year!
