Paradise Beach

We will be starting our trek from paradise beach. Paradise beach also known as Full Moon beach is enveloped in absolute surreal beauty. Raw and untouched, the beach is away from all the hustle bustle. The beach can only be reached by boat or by trekking through the forest. Leisure, warmth, and beauty describe Paradise Beach at its best.

p2

Half Moon Beach (Meal option available here) from paradise beach we will trekking through the coast to Half-Moon beach. Separated by a cliff from Om Beach, Half Moon Beach offers stunning views of the sea. Dotted with typical Indian style village huts or shacks, the beach is the perfect spot for unwinding and relaxation. With umpteen hammocks set amidst trees, you have a splendid spot in the midst of nature.

p3

Dolphin Point

From Half Moon beach to Om beach. Om beach is located at a distance of approximately 8 km from the town of Gokarna. Two semi-crescent shapes that join together resembling the symbol ‘OM’ is the reason behind the name of the beach.

Agumbe Rainforest Ecology – Trek & Camping 14 - 17 Jun 2018.

Although this was our first trek with Nature Walkers, it didn’t feel like that from the very first minute we met Shane our outdoor leader and then one by one the group we were going with. Expectation I set for this trip was to relax, have some fresh air, go far away from the polluted busy environment and de-stress. I must admit I got much more than my expectations. Forest walks, a dip in a clear flowing stream of water (twice actually), a small trek to a peak where we had scenic view of nature and greenery, first aid for snake bite session, session on King Cobra, wildlife photography, night walks, butterflies, camping in tents, tasty home cooked meals. We got a chance to be interacting with the Kalinga Center (KCRE) team (Gowrishankar, Prashant and Priyanka). They shared their experiences with rescuing king Cobras, we watched an amazing documentary featuring their rescue operations. This interaction was very informative and we learnt a lot about wildlife and their ecology. We even got a chance to have a quick stop at Sringeri temple, on our way back to Bangalore.

Away from network, it was great to disconnect from the virtual world and connect with nature.

Nature walkers have an amazing zeal that is contagious. Their passion to make every experience into a memorable one is evident in their actions and their interactions. Shane made sure all of us were always enjoying, having fun, kept us engaged and kept motivating me specially during the trek, which was a piece of cake for everyone else, including my 11-year-old daughter.

Thanks to Hemant and Amrita for constantly being in touch with their recommendations and help with planning this trip. Thanks to everyone on the trip with us, specially our awesome DJ Srikanth who also entertained us with his energetic dance, our illusionist Rahul who presented jaw dropping tricks during the trip, and everyone else contributing their share of fun Satish, Sanil, Gopalan, Shane, Shreya, Lalitha, thanks for making this a wonderful experience.

If you are looking for having a fun weekend, you can blindly pick any trip with Nature Walkers and I can guarantee, you won’t be disappointed. This is the testimonial I received from every repeat trekker on our trip. I am definitely motivated to tick off every trip they organize. Keep going Nature Walkers, looking forward to a lot of fun.

I must admit that I already miss the wonderful trip we had welcoming this new year. We were informed that this trip would be more to chill than to trek and you were absolutely right Mr. Hemant.

As soon as we reached Gokarna beach we left no time in taking a dip in the sea. Then we had a long walk on the beach and a small trek to reach Yana waterfalls. It was fun diving and swimming in the fresh cold waters.

We were back to the beach to witness a beautiful sunset and the view was mesmerizing and to top it off we played beach football in this stunning setting.

We missed the rain in rain dance but danced our hearts out for more than 3 hours!!

We welcomed the new year with colorful sky lanterns and fireworks. The interesting part was that we were enjoying every moment with some amazing people who had become good friends in no time!

On our way back, we played Mafia with our huge team of around 30 people and Asav was a cunning mafia rallying till the end fooling all the poor villagers.

Lastly, I would like to thank Hemant, Anupama and Manoj for organizing this amazing trip and I should mention that I have seen very few people with Hemant’s level of patience. Also, made some wonderful friends in Nikhil, Harsh, Rupali, Tanwi, Anupama, Manish and Hemant.

I have a feeling that the best day of the year is already done with this trip, but I look forward to my next trip with NatureWalkers which is going to take fun quotient to the next level and have some peaceful time off from our hectic job schedule.

PS: I had to wait till weekend to write this review as I had to dive directly into work after this awesome trip. Also, if it wasn’t for my friend Asav I wouldn’t have made this super awesome trip.
