After the dinner we retired to our beds at our stay near Gokarna beach to prepare for the next day's journey back to Bangalore. Thinking about a particular scene and enjoying it right in front of your eyes are two very different emotions. This we understood when we woke up the next day to the sound of waves gushing to the shore. But as people say, the grass always seems greener on the other side. With the beautiful memories etched deep in our minds, we packed our bags and started for Bangalore.
How to reach:
Gokarna is about 238 km from Mangalore and 483 km from Bengaluru. It is between the Gangavali and Agnashini rivers along the Karwar coast by the Arabian Sea.
There are buses for Gokarna but I would advise to take a drive to this beautiful city as the roads to this place are pretty scenic.
You can find a stay in Gokarna starting from 2,000 per night. The stays are mostly on the beach and offer nice views all through the day.
Things to carry:
On the beach trek you can go with sandals. Although it's a long trek but sometimes you might feel like going a little in the water. At those times, you'll want to have sandals instead of the shoes.
Water bottles. Although there are enough shacks from where you can buy water bottles, but it's still advisable to carry your own.
Power bank and spare camera batteries.
