3. Mumbai to Hampi Via Train

Hampi does not have a railhead of its own. The nearest railway station is located in Hospet (Hosapet Railway Junction), but no trains are operating between Mumbai and Hospet. So, travellers can head to another closest one, the Hubballi Railway Station, in Hubli. It is well-connected by Indian Rail System to Mumbai, is located about 160 kilometres away from Hampi and has an ample number of trains operating in between the destinations. After Hubli, travellers would have to arrange for a different mode of transport to reach Hampi. Those who find train journies just as exciting as roadways must give it a try.  
Train Options Available
About four to six trains are operating between Mumbai and Hubli, but only one is scheduled once a day, while the others are expected for one of two days of the week. This pattern is subjected to change, so travellers need to keep a close tab on the train schedules. The train choices are as follows; LTT Hubli Express, Puducherry Express, AII MYS Express, JU SBC Express, BKN YPR Express and SBC Garib Nawaj.

Starting Station
  • Lokmanya Tilak Railway Junction
  • Kalyan Junction
  • Dadar Railway Station
Drop Station
Hubbali Railway Junction
Train Timings
LTT Hubli Express operates every day of the week. It departs from Mumbai around 06:30 PM IST and reaches Hubli around 11:20 AM IST. The other trains that infrequently ply mostly operate in the evening (between 09:30 PM and 11:30 PM IST) or after midnight (around 01:00 AM IST).

Duration of the Journey: 15 to 20 hours 30 minutes
Fare
The cost of a train journey from Mumbai to Hubli depends on the class chosen by the travellers. A Sleeper class ticket (SL) would cost approximately INR 450/-, an AC 3-tier (3A) is priced around INR 1000/-, an AC 2-tier (2A) would cost about INR 1500/- and an AC First Class (1A) fare would be somewhere around INR 2500/- per ticket.
Preferable Local Transport from the Drop Station
From the drop station, i.e. the Hubbali Railway Junction, travellers would either have to book a cab or take a bus ride. Cabs directly reach Hampi via various national and state highways (161 kilometres). Whereas, buses would go till Hosapet and travellers would have to arrange for their travel henceforth to reach Hampi from Hospet. Therefore, rental cabs are more preferred to reach Hampi from Hubli.
Tips
  • The route leading to Hampi from Hubli goes via NH 67 or the Hubli – Bellary Road and takes about 3 hours 30 minutes to reach.
  • Travellers can make online cab bookings for pickup right from outside the Hubbali Railway Junction.

4. Mumbai to Hampi Via Flight

Hampi does not have an airstrip too of its own. The closest airport to the World Heritage Site is the Belgaum Airport, which is located about 295 kilometres away from Hampi. Mumbai is well connected by air to Belgaum and has about 4 to 5 planes scheduled almost every day of the week.

Drawbacks
The only drawback with flying from Mumbai is that all the flights are connecting ones and have at least two stops or one-stop and a layover. Also, from the airport, travellers have to arrange for another mode of transport to reach Hampi, which would extend the travel time and expense. But if one does not have another option, this might prove to be a decent option to reach at least more than half the distance between Mumbai and Hampi.

Nearest Airport: Belgaum Airport
Direct or Indirect Flight Options Available
As mentioned earlier, no direct flights connect Mumbai and Belgaum Airport. All of them are indirect ones with the flight time anything between 25 to 27 hours. Air India is the only airline that frequently operates between the two destinations.
Preferable Local Transport Available from the Airport
The preferred mode to transport to reach Hampi from Belgaum is by a rental cab. A pickup right from outside the airport is a convenient option. Driving down the entire stretch of 295 kilometres takes about 6 hours 30 minutes.

Bus Ride from Belgaum
The second most affordable option is to take a bus ride from Belgaum. But there are no direct buses to Hampi. Travellers can take a bus heading to Sindhanur or to Dharwad. From Sindhanur, they need to travel for about 83 kilometres and from Dharwad, they need to cover a distance of 76 kilometres by a rental cab/ taxi.
