The trek from Kumta to Gokarna beach is a 20 km long hike between two towns in the Uttara Kannada district – with the same names – Kumta and Gokarna. This trek starts from Kumta beach and goes all the way up to Gokarna or the other way round. But most trekkers prefer starting from Kumta. Unlike other treks which take you over mountains and hills, this trek is mostly along the coast line and you walk across ten beaches en-route. These beaches are geographically only a couple of kilometres away from each other and are separated by tiny hillocks across the coastline. All of them seem more beautiful and unique than the one before. Though this trek in some parts takes you over hilly terrain and a ferry ride this is primarily a trek along the coast line and treats you to some of the most beautiful and cleanest beaches in India.
