A Three-Day Trip to Gokarna: Things you Shouldn't Miss Out

This May, I visited the small beach town of Gokarna in Karnataka (India) with a friend from California. We did not read about the place, or the things that we could do there, before going. Bad decision. Unfortunately (or fortunately), this was the off-season as most of the tourists go there during November-February, and because of this a lot of the places were closed (such as the Chez Christophe, run by a Frenchman, which has live music and some good French food). It doesn’t make sense for them to stay open as they mainly depend on people from outside as locals never visit the touristy places, and the number of visitors during the off-season is very less. but I feel that Gokarna has a charm of its own when it’s not bustling with tourists. To save yourself from any disappointments, go on ahead and read this before you visit.

Gokarna : Bliss on the Beach

Situated approximately 500 km from Bangalore City, India, is this small but beautiful town called Gokarna. This place is one of the sacred towns in the state of Karnataka worshipping the Hindu Deity Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is believed to have loomed from a cow’s ear and hence the name Go- Karna(Cow’s – Ear). I happened to visit Gokarna in the month of January 2017 with a couple of my friends and this was so far the best trip I have been.
