Tips to have the more fun!
Choose your stay wisely. One of the main reasons I loved Gokarna was because of my stay at Zostel. You will meet amazing people, make new friends and have a peaceful time. I didn't try any other stay but definitely loved it here!
Mingle - Gokarna sure gets lots of solo travelers, especially if you are staying in Zostel or one of the other hostels. Mingle with the strangers, share stories over beer and you are bound to come back with new friends and lots of memories.
Train journey - If you get to go or come to Gokarna by train, you are in for the beautiful landscapes and picturesque sceneries. Gokarna to Goa, for instance goes through beautiful Western Ghats.
