We arrived at Gokarna Road Railway Station at 5 in the morning. It was really dark and so we stayed back at the railway station for another half an hour, till the sun started coming up.
The auto fare from Gokarn Road Railway Station to the main town is around Rs.250, which is almost non-negotiable as it is not too much for a ride of 11kms. However, we managed to get another backpacker with us in the auto to split the damage. Smart eh !
Our hostel was the coolest, as they allowed us to check in at 6 in the morning, whereas the check-in time was 12. We checked-in and went to sleep as we were damn tired by the train journey.
We woke up and went out for a breakfast at 10.30 in the morning. As I am a vegetarian, we started finding a veg restaurant for breakfast. As there are only few veg restaurants in the town, it would not be a tough task to find them for anyone. Just ask and people will help you. The breakfast - Banana Bun, Chai and Masala Dosa was super delicious.
Next was a two-wheeler hunt to go around the city. Just opposite the Gokarna bus stand you will find a lady sitting shouting out bike rental, bike rental. The Honda Activa costs Rs.300 per day, excluding fuel. We took one as it was a pretty fair deal and headed towards Om Beach. (Note : Check the papers of bike carefully and wear helmets all the time, when in Gokarna, as the police really pay attention to traffic rules here)
The drive to Om Beach was really very very beautiful. We made many stops to take pictures. One of the road gives a very scenic view of Kudle Beach.
