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.
