Winter Beach Trek : Gokarna to Kumta


Trekking is always joyful for me either is a new trail of repeated one. Yes, I have done couple of treks repetitive in the same trail but still enjoyed, and wants to go again and again. This time, we choose Gokarna Beach trek. This trail we did last year sometime in December 2016.


We scheduled this year on October 28 – 29th, 2017. The trail and team size finalized the same of last year. This time, my younger brother Mahadev (from Kalaburgi) and Sudhakar Son Rohit joined. The entire trek went well as expected. We have to forcibly stop at Kumta because of time constrain.

Finished the lunch before dipping in the sea. Mean time we had short music entertainment by Mahadev & team.


The real fun is started when we all enjoyed the beach volley ball. 


Spent some good time and headed to Apsarakonda falls.

This time crowd was less and water flow was more. We all enjoyed a lot and headed back to Bengaluru.


Mahadev booked ticket from Honnavara back to Kalaburgi. We dropped near bus stop and back to Bengaluru.


Indeed, it was one more memorable beach trek to all of us.
