Im going to be in Hampi from late November to January. Im not going to be climbing every day, but is there enough climbing there for a long stay??? Ill be back in India from March until the end of August. Im travelling with my bicycle and want to spend July and August touring in Ladakh. I would like to fill some of the time in between with some climbing, any suggestions for nice places to visit??
Hampi: I have not been there personally but have heard from friends that you can easily spend there a few months. Watch out for bears and other "friendly" animals
Ladakh/Himachal Pradesh climbing: I have spent there 1.5 months climbing, 1.5 months travelling/chilling out. Climbing: search for chat(t)ru, chota d(h)ara, zanskar. These places are spelled differently. Amazing bouldering there, thousand of rocks. A few rock climbing crags can be found around Manali/Vashist. Plenty of trekking/climbing companies which can give you advice. I reccommend High Himalayan Adventures in Vashist - very friendly people. They usually know if there is somebody in chattru, chota dara to climb with.
I would reccommend asking at indiamike.com forum. Much more people with India knowledge.
