Gokarna is easily the most famous destination in Karnataka. There are famous Beaches like Om Beach and Kudle Beach. The interesting thing is, there are also 5 offbeat beaches that can only be reached by trek. Is it like hopping from one beach to another? Not so simple! These Beaches are separated by hills covered with forest. One has to climb up the hill, trek through the woods and reach the next beach. Sounds exciting, eh?
We will start our trip by visiting Vibhooti waterfalls of western ghats to take a dip under chilling fresh mountain water. is simply rejuvenating. A visit to Yana caves in the thick rain forest is equally thrilling. This is one of the highlights of the trip. There’s something magical about waterfalls that will refresh your senses and instantly make you happy.
We shall explore gigantic formations of Yana caves deep inside the jungle by trekking.
Camping in Gokarna, especially on Nirvana private beach, is a beautiful experience. The music, the delicious food, the campfire, the sound of the waves, a stroll on soft cold sand under starry night adds up to the amazing experience.
The next day, we’ll go on an amazing hike to hidden beaches that are separated from Gokarna town by the Aghanashini river. The green sprouting hills with panoramic views, clean white sand beaches and the river merging into the sea is an experience that will refresh both your mind and soul.
Come, join Muddie Trails on this exciting journey to a wonderful destination that is Gokarna!
