When my friends and I decided to go Gokarna, I thought spending two days in Gokarna is a waste of time as a simple Google search didn’t list many interesting things to do in Gokarna. But it turned out that we left Gokarna with many things not crossed off our to-do list. We left from Pune to Belgavi and then we went through Kali Tiger Reserve to Karwar. I have to mention about the Kali Tiger Reserve as the road was in between the forest. Karnataka government has done a good job by providing good roads as we zipped through the dense green trees on the tar road with hoardings carrying a caution about the wildlife zone. We were hoping to find a Tiger or at least some other wild animals in this reserve area. Unsurprisingly, we didn't find any wild animals except monkeys and Buffaloes. It was absolutely fun to ride on this road. On our exit from Kali Tiger Reserve, we came across the Kali River. Upon seeing the greenish blue water in the river, we stopped our car to admire the beauty.
Day 2: Belgaum to Mumbai : 500 KmsStarted Day 2 with a quick bike Pooja by Pradeep’s mom and we were all set for the journey. The chill weather, and the rising sun was a perfect time to hit the road. Within an hour of our ride we were at the Karnataka-Maharashtra border. Post crossing Kolhapur,It was time to taste some Maharasthrian breakfast - Upma, Poha, food always tastes better when served with a smile.
