Gokarna/Kumta Beach trek : Pros : - AC bus(Semi-sleeper), R bus was 20 seater.- They provide accomodation(Tent) with sleeping bag.- They are communicative, I haven't felt like I'm on a solo trip.- Homely Food.- We can do swimming in most of the beaches.- Rock climming.- Journey time utilized in playing games.- Restrooms are clean at all stays.Cons : - Hard to find cons. - At last the trip ends and v had to return to r normal life.- One star less as I was not expecting this trip to end, still it ended.Experience : R trip was a combination of two terks(Gokarna and Kumta) due to a holiday on Rajyotsava. This was first solo trip of my life, and first trip in bangalore.day 0 : Jouney started early morning(5:30 am) form Swad-E-Punjab,HSR Layout. Around 9 am we reached a restaurant where v had r breakfast. During whole journey v were playing many interesting games. Reached Gokarna by around 9 pm. Had Dinner at a restaurant near beach. Then spent time singing songs in front of bonfire and looking a shooting stars. Seperate room for boys and girls was there to keep r bags. Restrooms were in good condition. Test was also good, with proper ventilation. I was not willing to waste my time in sleeping, still sleeped at around 1am.day 1 : I had set an alarm to getup early (5am). Swtiched that alarm off then had some more sleep. Gotup at sunrise, spent some time jogging on beach, looking fishermen fishing at beach. Till then morning breakfast was ready to eat, v submited r tifin box for lunch. After breakfast v left Gokarna, and head towards more beaches i.e. OM beach, paradise beach, half moon beach, Rock of peace, Rock climbing, deadly beach etc. at last v saw sunset. Luckly the climate was on r side. Then left towards Kumta. Stay at Kumta was awesome. Food was also good. The bonfire was lit, v sat near it , playing many games of card, singing song, watching stars, this time v didn't wish to sleep in tent though the tent was alloted to us, the beach was clean so v sleeped on beach itself watching stars.day 2 : Gotup early asusual. Did some jogging on beach. The v got ready for early morning trek beside beach. This trek was a thrill as there were horn trees beside track. V enjoyed the trek got to the top. The view from the top was beathtaking, a totally new world. Spent some time there and decent back to stay.Then had breakfast which was awesome and tasted homely with tea. Then v head towards Vibhuti waterfall. The waterfall was awesome, had two spots to jump into it. The depth at the point where the water falls was more then 9 feet, so no chance to get hurt. I know swimming so jumped twice form higher point and once from lower point. Then v head towards a village home where v changed r clothes. Then had lunch at a Dhaba kindof restaurent, This time also food was awesome and homely and omlet was also nice, and that too at very less cost. Ater lunch v head back towards Bangalore, again playing games in bus, with disco in bus as bus had disco lighting. The bus also had awesome speaker with subwoofer.I will definately plan for next trip with them most probably KP (Kumar Parvat) trek, as I'm a trekker. Some comments about trek leads :Jatin : He is a good listner. No matter how bad or good it is, he is always ready to listen to what you say or whatever your dought is. This shows his experience too. (Listening is a quality rarely found in people nowadays). His speech is also cool and dance sexy.Deeksha : I wish to have communication skills like her.Prakrati : Nice. She can beat whole group alone in Antakshari(A game of singing songs). - by Sanjeet for Gokarna Beach Trek & Camping | Plan the Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
A Perfect Escapade From Our Mundane LifeI was a part of their Gokarna and Kumta trek and it was my first trek with PTUPros - Basic necessities are taken care of very well. The washroom near the camps are clean, the food provided is tasty and the tents are comfortable.something which I didn't expect on such treks.Now coming to the trip itself. To be honest for me it was a whole another experience which I didn't know I was missing all my life. I made some awesome friends and we are still in touch. Amd these friends included the trek leaders as well. A typical trip for me is like staying in a hotel, book a vehicle for sight-seeing, sometimes we might have to trek a little to reach a particular place, and return. But PTU changed the whole perception. Imagine being in a trip where you are counting shooting stars and star gazing all night. Imagine not only experiencing the beach view but also early morning treks to highest viewpoint to get a breathtaking view of the beach and the mountains. Imagine cliff jumping into a waterfall even though you do not know swimming. These were some of the extraordinary experience which we had in the trip.Trek leaders- We were accompanied by three wonderful and professional trek leaders: Jatin, Prakrithi and Deeksha. For me personally, these guys were the most amazing people i have met in Bangalore till now and I am not even sugarcoating it. They took care of us like a family and made sure we enjoyed to the fullest. With Jatin's storytelling, Prakrithi's knowledge of games and songs and Deeksha's sassiness, there was never a boring moment in the trip.Cons - Times flies pretty fast and all of the exciting times eventually comes to an end.I would definitely recommend everyone to plan a trip with PTU atleast once get a unique experience of life! It is worth every penny. - by Manajit P for Gokarna Beach Trek & Camping | Plan the Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
Might be bit lengthy to read.....hope you don't regret if you miss to plan a trek with the PTU(plan the unplanned)This was my first trek with my bestie no doubt was one of the awesome one because of PTU.Journey - it was a long journey in gmaps but for us it was not with the icebreakers and the way the trek leads made us comfortable to interact.Food - homely food was the best part in this trip and they way we all sat together like a family and had meals was memorable.Destination Arrived - At night we freshened up(don't worry girls the washrooms are good) walk on the beach , campfire and the stargazing was the best part. Trekking - Next day we started our trekking since it was my first trek i was exhausted soon but my team never complaint even when we took small breaks of 10 or 5 min and the way the trek leads encouraged.Day 2 no one was sleeping in tent we all were fascinated with the star gazing and slept out.Rock climbing. - this rock near moon beach was tough to climb for a first time trekking people but the way the trek lead Jatin encouraged and supported all the 12 members had climbed successfully.Day 3 Vibudi waterfalls all of us had a great time here with a great homely food prepared for lunch post heading back to Bangalore.Trek Leads - Prakriti - was good at interacting with all , do not carry headphones else you will miss the best singer , Deeksha always active to help and funnyJatin - best in entertainment .Sad part to bid best trek memories for life. - by Kavitha Reddy for Gokarna Beach Trek & Camping | Plan the Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
