Summer of 2015, life was all set to take a new turn. A new adventure was about to begin, and I never knew that the two years I was going to spend at the student town of coastal Karnataka called Manipal, would turn out to be just magical. While juggling the rigor of the academics, the traveler in me did manage to explore almost everything within the vicinity of the place. Here I present the 15 hidden gems of Karnataka, and I would call them hidden for the fact I would have never visited them hadn't I come to Manipal.
NOTE: Distance to all the places are with reference to Tiger Circle, centre point of the town of Manipal.
