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 with a relaxing morning at Nirvana beach, away from the Gokarna town indulging in following adventure activities – Boating, Deep Sea Swimming, Dolphin Sighting, Kayaking.

Many more beaches waiting to be explored later in the day by trekking till we reach most famous Om Beach!
With colorful crowd and picturesque panorama, Om Beach makes a perfect setting to take selfies and groupfies!

The night is happening and full of memories at Gokarna!
The music, the delicious food, the campfire, the sound of the waves, and a stroll on the soft sand under a moonlit night adds up to the amazing experience. 

The next day, we will visit Murudeshwar which is a temple town with a spellbinding view of gigantic Shiva statue in the backdrop of Arabian sea. The huge Shiva statue is surrounded by Sea on three sides. The Beach is just a small walk from the temple. It’s a surreal feeling to experience Murudeshwar sitting pretty on the west coast.

Honnavar is a hidden gem that is famous for it’s beautiful backwaters. A boat ride on the Sharavati River originating from western ghats is a refreshing experience. A thrilling view of setting sun at the same time is a cherry on the top to end Gokarna trip on a high.
