Places to See Near Gokarna

Are you someone who loves mountains as much as you love beaches? Or do you find the Himalayas just too cold to handle while trekking? Fret not! Here is the ultimate destination where you can climb a hill and dive into the sea. Gokarna, a paradise in itself, provides you a chance to experience the best of both worlds. A small beach town, in Karnataka, on the coast of Arabian sea; Gokarna gets the attention of those who love a wilderness surrounding. With more tourists and backpackers flocking there every year, Gokarna paints some of the best sunsets in India. Roads? What roads? We HIKE from one beach to another, cutting across beautiful forests densely covered with coconut trees. Hiking through rocky and forest trails, Gokarna is one of the best places to start trekking at. Not only famous for its beaches and trails, Gokarna is also an important pilgrim and historical site.
