An overnight bus journey of 380 km commences from Bangalore to Banavasi. We shall have a brief orientation followed by a fun-filled ice-breaking session where you will get to know your fellow trekkers better.

Day 1Yana Caves and Kumta Beach Exploration

Plan The Unplanned presents Banavasi – The First Capital of Karnataka.

We all feed and learn from our Kisans!

India’s heart lies in its villages. Every rural community is steeped in folklore and indigenous craft. The traditional way of life will greatly enrich anyone’s energy. Deep into the roads from Sirsi, lies a small village with a bus stand being the only source of transportation for its people, pineapple the daily snack which the whole village rejoices on, milk freshly brewed from the buffalo every morning and different authentic cuisines at every point of time, all experiences that make one feel like a true Kannadiga.

Scuba Diving at Nethrani Island 11

Let us explore one of the most unseen and unexplored historical places in Karnataka.

The Kadambas were the first indigenous dynasty to use Kannada, the language of the soil, at an administrative leave in the history of Karnataka.

This is Banavasi – the oldest and the First Capital of Karnataka. It lies deep in the rainforests of the Western Ghats with the Varada river flowing around it on three sides.

Existing since 4000 BC, the period of Mahabharata, Banavasi was known as ‘Vanavasika’. Greek geographer Ptolemy mentioned Banavasi as ‘Banousi’ in his famous book in the 1st century A.D. It was called ‘Jayanthipura’ or ‘Vaijayanthi Pura’ during the Kadamba period in the early 4th century A.D. Huen Tsang the Chinese traveller-monk who was in India between 630-644 C.E, visited Konkanapura called Konkanapulo (referred in Chinese scripts) or Banavasi.

It’s an eco-tourism destination which is rustic and rural flavours, and you can look forward to real cultural experience while enjoying the beauty of nature.

Banavasi Tour - Plan The Unplanned

The meal which we serve you comprises a wide range of fresh powders and chutneys made of lentils, chillies, tamarind, and oil cake with Rice / Millets. The food is made by local families. It is noncommercial and healthy.

Don’t forget to try the fresh Pineapples. The best Pineapples are grown in Banavasi.

This was such a memorable trip not only because of the first time in Scuba diving. Also solely because i chose PTU for this. The organiser was just amazing. The way he planned up amazing things for us when he found extra time to how he made the trip entertaining and fun. He was one of the best. Again, the organiser Abhilash handled things well. And he honestly gave his ears when requested for anything. There Scuba diving, snorkeling and Banavasi trip were well organised and i have nothing to complain about. PTU can be so much trusted for a pleasant weekend. Definitely will be using the service again. It was an amazing weekend with PTU.

Scuba Diving at Netrani Island – This was my second trip with PTU and trust me nothing was unplanned! Everything was planned and taken care of with the minutest detail which majorly includes travel, stay, food and safety. The trip leads of PTU are always pleasure to be with (this time Seema and Prakruthi :)). The cherry on the cake was definitely scuba diving! I can’t thank PTU enough for making me experience this amazing and thrilling experience. I am for sure looking forward to many more fun-filled adventurous trips with PTU. You guys are doing an amazing job, keep going, all the best!

Nethrani under water scuba diving- I am so much grateful to PTU team and the trek leads Seema and Prakruthi for taking us to this wonderful experience. Being under water was the most ethereal feeling of my life, so calm, peaceful, knowing each breathe that you take and living in the moment interacting with the marine life. I can’t thank enough to the organisers and the West Coast Adventures. PTU !!! You people are doing a great job. Keep surprising us.
Also, This was my third time with the PTU team.
