A two-day beach trek will cover 10 beaches along the state's untapped shoreline
IF you think you've already covered India's most scenic beaches, you might want to rethink the claim. Travel Trikon will be organising a two-day beach trail that will cover 10 beaches across Karnataka's verdant, untouched shoreline.

The trail will begin at Kumta and cover beaches at Vannali, Kadle, Nirvana beach as well as the more famous Paradise, Half-Moon and Om beaches. The trek will end at Gokarna, which is home to a famous Shiva temple.
The route will cover at least 5km every day, and will include a ferry ride across the Aghanashini River. Other activities include a bonfire on the beach and camping under the stars, as well as a chance to savour local cuisine cooked at each of the halts en route. Sunrises and sunsets will be spectacular at each halt, according to the organisers.
