Vedhasmrutha Sathyan, Class 8

I love travelling and learn about new places. Our CAP group decided to go to Gokarna for a beach trek that involved walking along the sandy beach, hike through the green meadows, trekking rocky terrain, camp on an island with the entire beach for ourself and a visit to the mangrove forest with a dip in the backwater. It was hectic two day trek that you should not miss if you get a chance to go.

Gokarna is a popular pilgrimage destination for Hindus, Gokarna is known for sacred sites like Mahabaleshwar Temple, which has a shrine dedicated to the deity Shiva. It is situated in Uttar Karnataka /North Karnataka district of the state of Karnataka. 

We were’nt there for temple visits but we went on a  beach hopping spree that covered four beaches before camping on the Heaven beach. One can cover the following beaches if you start from Gokarna Main Beach.

Gokarna main beach,  Kudle beach, Om beach Half Moon beach (also called Small Hell beach), Paradise beach, and finally to Belakani beach.

From Belakani beach we took a ferry to go to Heaven  beach where we camped for the night. No doubt, that was far too many beaches for a 2 day outing, but who ever gets tired of beaches… click here to read more
