Every day we wake up, start chasing our dreams, feel that this is only life but in reality life has much more to offer. Take a break from daily monotonous schedule and plan an adventures tracking trip with friends to the small town of Gokarna. Not only will you be thrilled with the adventure of tracking but you will also come close to nature and spirituality. What makes it more exciting is the night journey with your group as Gokarna is around 520 kms from Bangalore. It is advisable to have a light meal the night you are travelling.
The name Gokarna comes from the belief that it was at this place that Lord Shove emerged from a cow’s ear. (Mother Earth)
Gokarna has around four main beaches. You can start your tracking from Kudle beach as it is around 1 km from one end to the other. If you have a bat and a ball you can even play cricket on the beach. The dusk at Gokarna beach is a must. The magic of the orange light on the waves presents an awesome picture that you will want to etch in your memory forever.
You can then go to Om beach. The beach is in the shape of “Om”. On the right hand side of the beach is a medium size cliff climbing called Shiva Climb. You will not find his type of spiritual uniqueness in any other beach of the world.
At the Half Moon beach, you will actually feel the thrill of trekking. You will come in contact with a huge rock called the rock of peace and from there you can view the beautiful dolphins on the Arabian coast line. There is another way to reach the Half Moon Meach , via a coastal line with hundreds of coconut and palm trees. This trail will make you feel at peace with nature.
For those who love silence and peace go to Paradise Beach. It is full of palm trees and rocks so you can again start the rock climbing. There are some wild paintings on the rock, which you can click the pictures of with your group as a sweet ever green memory. In the night you can have candle light dinner, and music near the beach.
The best time to go is October to February. Bring a pair of jackets, cargos, shorts so that you can easily climb the mountains. Bring pair of sport shoes and medical kit. Avoid coming in the monsoon as the sand is slippery. So what are you waiting for. Pack your bag and experience a unique combination of spirituality thrill and silence at the Gokarna Beach.
