“Bring binoculars if you want to see the bears”

Daroji Bear Sanctuary
Ranked #36 of 60 things to do in Hampi
Attraction details
Reviewed November 15, 2011

It took us an hour to drive to the Daroji Bear Sanctuary from Hospet. The entry fee per vehicle was Rs. 500 and in addition you pay Rs. 50 per head. The guard cautions you that you have to return by 6pm, when the park closes. Then you drive a further 5kms inside the park to get to the watch tower. From there you can see the bears if you remember to bring binoculars, else you'll see black spots moving on the hillock in the distance. You can also see peacocks. The forest department feeds the bears at 1pm. The bears come out to eat and you can watch them. Otherwise you have to wait nearly for sunset for the bears to venture out again, then dash out before the gates close.
Not worth visiting.
