Gokarna to Honavar - Beach Trek - 1
The trek was well organised by the Bangalore Ascenders club. It all started 1 month before in November stating we are going for the beach trek in December 18th and 19th. It was also mentioned that it was a diffcult trek and people who had done many trek can register for this trek. I reached bangalore on 17th Dec as the entire group gathered at Ananad Rao Circle. 22 People travel along with me to Gorkarna.
Where is Gokarna?
It Lies in the state of Karnataka and from bangalore it is 500kms and it take 10 hrs to reach the destination. Bangalore to Gokarna Via Tumkur,Tiptur,Kadur,Shimoga,Sagar,Honavar.
Gokarna is close by to the Sea, Where the actual Start point begins. Here goes the plan, It is 2 days trek and places that we cover are along the coast line. We come across beautiful rain forest Mountains with all the end points of the Mountains we come across rocks where the sea hit the rocks.
