We are planning for a 5-day trip to these places from Pune during Jan-Feb 2008. We are planning to drive. This is a sketch of the plan:
Day 1: Drive down to Hampi from Pune. Stay at Hampi.
Day 2: Tour Hampi. Stay at Hampi.
Day 3: Early morning start. Tour Badami-Aihole-Pattadakal. Night at Bijaput.
Day 4: Tour Bijapur. Stay at Bijapur.
Day 5: Back to Pune.
Please comment on the plan - feasibility, suggestions etc. It will be great if someone can give me ideas about the distances and driving times between the destinations. Also, pointers to hotels will also be very welcome.
Is it possible to compress the plan to 4 days instead of 5?
