It's recommended to hire a car for the first day of trip if traveling in group. You can book your car on justcarrent.com from Murdeshwar. The second largest statue in India of Lord Shiva is set in a breath-taking landscape atop a hill surrounded by the Arabian Sea. There is a spectacular 20-storeyed gopuram with two large elephants in the temple, all insta-worthy monuments. Swimming, boating, and parasailing are the activities you can partake in here at Murdeshwar Beach.
Now its turn for another adventures location - Murdeshwar for Scuba Diving. Murdeshwar is also famous for massive Lord Shiva's statue just beside the sea. Reach Gokarna Railway station which is around 12km from Trippr hostel, book the Mangalore train which takes 90 mins to reach Murdeshwar. If you are hiring a bike, you can take the ride which is ~80km from Gokarna.
We drove further down the coast by about a 100 km and reached Murudeshwar. We saw the sunset at Murudeshwar beach and got back to Kapu. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves and the rustle of the coconut trees.
The road to Gokarna from Mysore passes through Kodagu district which unfortunately had dealt with heavy landslides recently. So we were quite slow in our journey. Our first stop was Murdeshwar temple, world's second tallest Shiva statue. It was around 06:00 when I woke up to this view
