Hi,

We're planning to go to Gokarna during August 12 to 14.
Aug 12 we've planned for beach trek. But bit confused here. Where to start and where to end to complete entire trek in a day. Many blogs say Kudle - Om - Halfmoon - Paradise.

My question is
1) is that the entire route
2) which way is better Kudle to Paradise or vice versa.
3) Where to stay depending on the route we take.
4) we have one more full day and one half day, what else can we plan during that time.

TIA

Thanks,
Vikram M N

I did Paradise-halfmoon-Om-Kudle and it was fine. Advantage doing it this way is the long walk from paradise to where the accommodation is (Om or Kudle) can be avoided (have a car / auto drop you). The trek takes couple hours at most (its about 6 kms one way is what i recall, could be less). No need to stay / camp

There're couple rough patches, one between Halfmoon and om when you go over a high cliff - it's confusing. The other around halfmoon where its a bit rocky and you have to go over those (but that could be because i went alone and rather characteristically, got a bit lost taking photos).

Carry water, apply sunscreen and take a good hat. Sun is strong.

Remaining time is plenty to check out the town - small shops, temples, bylanes. Also some beach time, sea-swimming, etc.

Don't overthink, just go.

No sea-swimming in August during monsoon.

And is anything open on that trek in August?

Thanks Vaibhav. While returning, after one way trek, is there any transport option? We dont mind walking back but just asking.

And planning to stay in Namaste Cafe. How do we reach there. Any public transport. We'd like it to keep to Public transport majorly.

You can always catch an auto rickshaw to anywhere in Gokarna.

If we cover the entire trek route in one day. What can we do in the remaining two days. Anything interesting to explore.

How's night life in Gokarna. Anything specific to check out in terms of bars and restaurants.

You can explore the town and visit various temples.
Spend a day at the beach.
Hire a boat and go for a ride.
Not much of a night life. You can visit bars though.
