When we hear about treks, we assume that there would be lofty mountains or lush green hills to welcome us. Well, if you want to try something different, then here’s a chance to join us for the Gokarna Beach Trek.

Gokarna, a temple town about 484 km’s from Bangalore, is on the Western coast of India. Located in the Kumta taluk of Uttara Karnataka, the main deity is Lord Shiva,  also known as Mahabhaleshwara. This temple houses what is believed to be an original image of Lord Shiva’s lingam (Atmalinga).



Apart from being one among the seven most important Hindu pilgrimage centers, it is known for its scenic and rustic beaches. The drive up the winding path is serene and leads to rocky mountains, with the Western Ghats on one side and the Arabian Sea on the other.

So let’s spend a weekend away from the city on the scenic beaches of Gokarna and come back with memories to be cherished for long.

My first solo trip to Gokarna, had to be with plan the unplanned. It was one of the most beautiful experiences. Gokarna is a place which I have visited before but never seen this side of it, thanks to these guys for showing a different side to it.

I loved every bit of this place, the trek felt never ending but every beach had a different charm which I enjoyed completely. Thanks to the organisers for making it worth.

The leads were flawless, they made sure everyone was comfortable and was well taken care. More popularly known as “Jumping Jatin” made sure everyone was involved and completely entertained.

Thanks PTU for the experience, I am definitely going to do more treks with you.

Went for the Gokarna beach trek. Stayed in tents at the Gokarna beach, had a mud fight in paradise beach, got a cliff view of Om beach and watched the sunset from Kudle beach. Loved it!
The trek leaders are so great that they make sure you’re having fun every moment! We were a group of 15 people, and there was never a dull moment. Within 1 day everyone had there own set of inside jokes! Most fun trek ever 😀
