Karnataka – One state and many Worlds has been a major attraction since ages in South India. This state is one of the state with majority of waterfalls in India, with lots of ancient history embedded in cities like Mysore, Hampi, Pattadakal. With Arabian Sea as a coast and western ghats guarding infinite are species on Earth, this is a state worth a visit in ones’ lifetime. And now Karnataka is also in making as a backpacker’s hub as Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. Hippie attractions like Hampi and Gokarna are the two major most places where solo backpackers are also heading to. With so much of attention the state also has a lot to offer when it comes to affordable stays.
