04:00 : Get down at Kumta railway station where our team will pick you up by private vehicles and transfer to our hostel near Nirvana Beach.With beautiful surroundings and its tranquil setting,Nirvana Beach is one of the most serene places you will see in Gokarna.A complete loner, this beach offers the most silent and serene atmosphere to walk along the shore or simply sit down and observe the never-ceasing tides! Here, we check in at our pretty little hostel and rest for a while. (The welcome breakfast's on us by the way :D)
08:00 : Today, we go for an excursion to the famed Yana Caves & Vibhuti Falls!!! Its gonna be a mad, adventurous day! Buckle
up, we’re about to turn the gears ;) After being mesmerized by the ancient caves and diving endless times into the chilly waters of the Vibhuti Falls, its now time for a trip to Mirjan Fort
The Mirjan Fort is flanked by the banks of Agnanishi River and is filled with high ceilings and bastions.
Post the Mirjan Fort trip, we come back to our hostel and call it a day.
BUT not before we go explore some nearby cafes to hog on some delicious food varying in multiple cuisines from Continental to Israeli to South Indian to Italian!!And if you're a seafood fanatic; boy, you're in for a treat!
PS: We have really good chances of catching glimpses of the bioluminescent phytoplankton (glowing blue colour) in the waves during the late evening! So if you're planning to stay up a Lil late, you might be in for a sweet surprise :)
