    All about the Gokarna Beach Trek with Vibhooti Waterfalls & Yana Caves.

    Hello Bangalore!

    Gokarna is easily the most famous destination in Karnataka. There are famous Beaches like Om Beach and Kudle Beach usually visited by tourists. Interesting thing is, there are also a few more beaches that can only be reached by trek like Paradise Beach, Small Hell BeachHalf Moon Beach. These Beaches are separated by hills covered with mini forest. One has to climb up the hill, trek through the woods, and reach the next beach. Sounds exciting, eh?

    We’ll start our trip by checking into our homestay located on a hill near Kudle Beach. With colorful crowd and picturesque panorama, Om Beach makes a perfect setting to take selfies and groupfies! Many more beaches waiting to be explored later in the day.

    The night is happening and full of memories at Gokarna!
    The music, the delicious food, the bonfire, social gathering under a moonlit night adds up to the experience. 

    The next day, we will visit Gokarna Temple, flea market, and head to gushing Vibhooti waterfalls to take a dip under chilling fresh mountain water. 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.

    Finally, we shall explore gigantic formations of Yana caves deep inside the jungle by trekking.

    Come, join Muddie Trails on this exciting journey to a wonderful experience – Gokarna Beach Trek, Vibhooti Waterfalls, and Yana Caves!

    Special notes:

    • Tourists are not allowed to play in the sea because of the high tide during monsoons (usually June to Sept). Book your trip only if you are fine with this. It is dangerous to enter the sea at that time.

    Seasonal variations:

    • Feb to May (summer): Clear views, amazing sunsets. A warm climate throughout the day, an ideal time to take a dip in the sea and go swimming. Vibhooti has enough water to take a refreshing dip. Yana caves provide a good experience. Best time for sunsets.
    • June to mid-Oct (monsoon months): It’s a wild and wet season for Gokarna. Trekkers aren’t allowed to enter the Sea because of the high tide. The rains will hit hard. It’s a good time to chill out and enjoy the beauty of the place. Need raincoats for the trek. Vibhooti waterfalls and Yana caves in the jungle give a thrilling wild experience. 
    • Oct to Jan (winter): Misty weather, peaceful sunsets, pleasant weather during days, cold nights. A good amount of water at Vibhooti. Best time for Yana caves.
