one day road trip

Tripoto
9th Oct 2015

Just before the day of results we people decided to go on a trip just to make it memorable and yes it was truly memorable.


We started at 6 am in the morning from dharwad and reached sirsi at around 9 am,we had our breakfast in sirsi and departed to yana which is around 21km from sirsi.

Yana is a village located in forests of the uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India, which is known for the unusual rock  formation . It is located in the sahyadri mountain range of the western  ghats, about 60 kilometres (37 mi) from karwar  port, 40 kilometres (25 mi) from sirsi , and 31 kilometres (19 mi) from kumta. The two unique rock outcrop snear the village are a tourist attraction and easily approachable by a small trek through 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) of thick forests from the nearest road head.

Yana is famous for these two massive rock outcrops known as the Bhairaveshwara Shikhara and the Mohini Shikhara ("Shikhara" means "hill"). The huge rocks are composed of solid black, crystalline karst limestone . Bhairaveshwara Shikhara is 120 metres (390 ft) in height, while the Mohini Shikhara, which is smaller, is 90 metres (300 ft) in height. Yana is also well known as a pilgrimage centre because of the cave temple below the Bhairaveshwara shikhara where a Swayambhu ("self manifested", or "that which is created by its own accord") linga has been formed. Water drips from the roof over the linga, adding to the sanctity of the place.

During annual festivities held here during the Shivaratri  is also held. The place and surrounding hillocks are also known for ever green scenic forest.

After yana we visited vibhooti falls which is around 15km from yana but we had to walk around 2km through the jungle since no vehicle could enter. After that tiring walk and photoshoot we decided to go to gokarna which we decided on spot and wasn't preplanned

Gokarna was around 35 km from vibhooti falls, all our tiredness went off when we took a nap ond the Shores of OM beach under the tree and after that we had some fun with the evening waves n then finally the sunset 

Our trip ended with awesome memories
