It was around 9 pm at night we reached gokarna and had no clue of where to go next. We hadn't made any pre booking in any of the hotels. We had just rented a tent for 5 days from banglore. Next what we needed was to find a place to put our tents on. Suggested by the locals, we went to Niravana beach. It is 5 kms by ferry, but we had to take a 50km turn by road to reach the beach.
10:30PM Nirvana Beach: Complete darkness, sky full of stars, no one around us, all we could hear was sound of waves.
Finally, we decided to put up our tent on the beach and light bonfire.
