  • Description


    my name is Vikas "Jerry" and with my partner Koushik "Tom" we own a small climbing shop in Hampi, South India. In 2018 we launched a climbing festival, the Golden Boulders Climbing Festival in Hampi, a 10 days non-competitive event for boulderers with yoga and slacklining classes. For next year we have ambitious goals: to reach 50 partecipants for the entire festival and make this event the most important non-competitive one in South India. To reach our goal we are looking for someone that can help us with all the web marketing activities before and during the event: Facebook, Instagram and our blog.

  • Accommodation


    I offer a private room at my home with the use of the kitchen (I'll provide the food but not the cooking since I'm are not really good in that!). The house will be obviously shared with me and nobody else. During season, however, I'll be often out since I have to follow my groups (we offer night camping and trekking tours around). Transport facility and laundry are also included.
    My home is located in Virupapura Gaddi near by Old Stone Bridge. Grocery shops are reachable in few minutes walk. It's a new building (partially still work in progress but it will be ready for our guest) made in traditional way using also chattay mat and coconut leaves for the roof. Bathroom is western style. Outside the house there is also a yard.
