En route Kumta beach to Gokarna beach, people pass through more than 15 beaches on foot. If you need to explore a different path of South India, take the trekking adventure that is unlike the other forms of hiking.
The journey starts at Kumta beach, and en route, you can stop by beaches namely Vannalli, Kadle, Paradise, Nirvana, Half-Moon, and Om Beach. Obviously, it ends at Gokarna, the town made famous by the Mahabaleshwar Temple and its serene beachside views.
It is a long trek between the two towns in Karnataka’s Uttara Kannada district. Note that it is a two-day trip, which covers around 15 to 20 kilometers in all including some off the beaten paths, and some with no shops. That is one of the reasons why participating trekkers carry with them water, and backpack food. Regardless, pack light in order to keep the trek going without much interruption except for a want to stop to enjoy the scenery.
The perfect time to take the beach trek from Kumta to Gokarna tends to be following the recession of the South Indian monsoon from November until February. If you can walk long, this adventure is worth the wait and is suitable especially if you have fitness.
Trekkers alternate the paths from the beaches to the hill spots en route the long trial and continue the walk via picturesque beaches that one may come across in all of South India. Note that most of such scenic beaches unexplored by regular tourists cannot be accessed by roadways, which makes the trekking all the more worthwhile. Besides, it is a delight for those with interest in landscape photography.
With each step, trekkers will take in the sound of tidal ways that crash onto the rocks and enjoy the sandy rock formations on the beaches alongside the hill spots. If that sounds like your day, certainly there is more fun on the cards while trekking from Kumta to Gokarna such as camping on the beach.
If you have a loved one with you in the crew, consider stopping by any of the beaches and light a bonfire against the shorelines of the Arabian Sea. Once you reach the destination, stay in any of the cottages in Gokarna, explore the temple town, and enjoy a perfect retreat overall.
