Day 1

Reach Hubli by any travel bus and hire a vehicle to gokarna. Travel time is 4hrs from Hubli to gokarna.

Reach Belakan beach and start beach trail to OM beach. You should follow paradise beach trail.

The trail will go through middle of forest and sometimes on the beach side. You will just walk on side paths of beach.

First beach we see will be paradise beach. Stop on the sunset point in the middle of trek, you can see it's the highest point.

Day 2

Early morning go to temple. Temple opens at 6.30 am.
Lift to go top top floor of gopuram opens at 7am. They charge Rs. 10 per person. It is worth it. We can see the whole surrounding of the temple and beach. Such a big Shiva idol looks so yogic.

Start to viboothi falls, in 2hrs we can reach falls.
We need to trek for 10mins, to falls. Cars or bikes are not allowed after the entrance point.

Vibuthi is a 3 tier highest water falls in Karnataka. We can climb upto top through side ways. Path will be slippery and sloppy.

Continue trek to half moon beach. It resembles the shape of a crescent moon, hence the name half moon. After half moon, you will reach OM beach. This beach is exactly in shape of OM.

You will reach there by evening, can witness most beautiful sunset. I feel connected to this place. Its my favourite place in gokarna to view sunset.
