Gokarna Beach Trek and Dandeli Water Sports


Gokarna: A trek that goes through more than 5 pristine beaches on the west coast of India involves mountains, or forests, or valleys. This trek contrasts the usual destinations and still gives you that adrenaline rush.

Vibhooti Falls: The Vibhuti Falls is a beautiful waterfall hidden in the western ghats and not yet one of those over-crowded popular tourist destinations. Legend of Vibhuti Falls is linked to the legend of Yana Rocks. It is believed that the water that comes from Yana is the Vubhuti or sacred ash, and that gives these perennial falls the name – Vibhuti Falls.

Dandeli: Nature is at its bountiful best at Dandeli (North Karnataka) with a swiftly flowing river and great rapids making it a haven for adventure and water sports enthusiasts. Dense forests around Dandeli are home to some of the most revered wild species including elephants, bison, panthers, leopards, and tigers, calling for an adventurous tryst with these majestic beasts into the heart of the wilderness. While exploring the challenging Kavala Caves and experiencing the natural water springs are some of the other adventurous experiences not to be missed.

All in all, Dandeli has a plethora of activities to indulge anyone. Revel in the adventures and the unparalleled scenic beauty of this destination located on the banks of the Kali River is complemented by the exotic wildlife that resides in its tropical forests.
