Kumta - The trek started with us reaching the camp site where tents had been set up and the ocean could be heard. With two of the sweetest local guides who told me stories of the ocean and the rains, we visited forts, wells, and a lot of good, secluded beaches. The trek leaders, Amit and Jolly, constantly reassured the group that there was enough time to do as we pleased, and a sense of peace was established. The sound of the waves crashing on the sea shore, only reinforced this. On the rocks and on the sand, both the local guides and our trek leaders helped us safely get through. Dolphins and excited screams were witnessed. Amit taught me the art of floating, while being very considerate of my inability to swim. Later while being even more considerate of our wishes, on a spontaneous boat ride, life jackets were tightened and we jumped off the boat only to realize that floating in the middle of the ocean is an underrated experience. After dinner, Jolly enlightened us and took us to a world, where only the sound of the ocean and that of the Harmonica existed. Jolly showed us glow in the dark plankton that lit up the ocean while pointing out at the constellations right above us. The next day, we were taken to the waterfall we all voted for, and dinner was accommodated according to our desires too. I was honestly amazed by how accommodating our trek leaders were of all our needs, and desires. PTU and especially my trek leads, did one good job. I am aware that this review is a tab bit long but when one goes on such a good trip with really good people, this is inevitable :) - by Thejaswini K for Kumta Beach Trek and Camping | Plan The Unplanned .
The journey to Kumta started out and I already knew it was going to be an amazing one. My trek leaders, Jolly and Amit, were the sweetest, indeed entertaining and most accommodative of the group's needs. When we reached the next day, we were shown our tents, a place we declared home. This place was just a few steps away from the ocean. We started trekking after breakfast and the local guides that PTU had arranged were very interactive and had extremely interesting stories. The veiw was constantly amazing and at each place the trek leaders gave enough time for the group to soak in the place and also specifically gave us time to click pictures. Whenever we reached the ocean after a bit of trekking, we were encouraged to get into the water. The words "we have a lot of time, do whatever you want" were said and that way, a sense of freedom and peace were established. Later, the trek leaders were kind and patient enough to teach me how to float, which definitely made me very very happy. While we headed to the bus to go to another beach, one of the trek leaders saw a boat and suggested a short beach ride. Our local guide was immediately contacted and his boat was summoned. We put on our life jackets, felt like soldiers, and got on the boat. When we were in the middle of nowhere, one of us suggested jumping out of the boat. Even if I knew only backward swimming, the amount of reassurance of safety I got from all the leaders around me made me jump out of that boat too. This was indeed one of the best days of my life. This is something I'll never forget. Lying amidst salty water and facing the blue sky which had a few birds occasionally flying over me, while listening to the voices of the ones who completely believed in my swimming skills, is apparently one of my favorite things to do. After this spontaneous boat ride, we headed to more beaches in a bus to look at a sunsets. We sang our lungs out and the trek leaders chose the best of songs to sing and Jumpstarted the whole singing session. Being a music lover, one must know this brought joy to me. When we finally reached the beach for the sunset, having a lot of time in our hands, we decided to do headstands. Something I had never done before. When we saw the sun heading towards the horizon, we started trekking to the sunset point. We sat there, on a small hill, which was a few meters above the water, and saw the sun say goodbye. Next we headed back to the place where we stayed, cleansed ourselves with cold showers and waited for some dinner. A bonfire, which is a must in every trip, was arranged. Ghost stories, songs, dances and so many other experiences were shared under an ocean of stars and a fire beside us. Jolly played some songs with his mouth organ while the rest of us hummed along. Little did I know that the sound of waves and the music from a mouth organ was one of the most pleasant things to listen to. After this amazing session, Jolly took us to the ocean and showed us glow in the dark planktons that arrived with each wave. He patiently stood there while we screamed out of uncontrollable excitement. With the hopes of catching a sunset the next morning, we went to sleep. I spotted a hammock and decided to sleep there with just a little encouragement from Amit. Next morning, when a few people woke me up, I jumped out of the hammock and headed towards a hill above the beach to get the perfect spot to see the sunrise, which Jolly had already found. After a sequence of events, we packed up and left for a waterfall. The initial plan was to watch a waterfall but when the rest of the group wanted to actually get wet at a waterfall, Amit and Jolly changed the plan and took us all to another waterfall where we got into the water and had some fishes creepily feed off of us. When I had already made up my mind that my trek leaders are amazing people, I went back to the bus and realized that I was right. Some amazing music was played, a seat near the driver was given so that a breathtaking view could be witnessed throughout the journey and when one member of the group randomly suggested that we stop at davangere for some davangere masala dosa, this too was immediately accommodated for, by Amit and Jolly. On the whole, I had a really good trip only because these trek leaders made it possible. Two good days were spent and a lot of memories were made. All I can say to Plan the unplanned is, Thank you. - by Thejaswini Kayargadde for Kumta Beach Trek and Camping | Plan The Unplanned .

Gokarna beach trek and camping was the first time experience of its kind for me with a trekking organization where people not-so-familiar to each other met and bade adieu to the trek as pals. I had always wanted to go for trips of this sort, but never before PTU could I plan going with such a great bunch of people. Every moment had a story to tell and every story had an emotion attached to it. Right from the fun-filled improvised intro sessions in the bus to the floor smashing moves on our way back, each tick is cherished. The beach hopping, water splashing, volleyball, the amazing sunset and dolphin sighting, one can go on and on. Stories, poems and music over the bonfire took the best out of everyone adding to the connect among ourselves. Camping and star gazing right on the Gokarna beach was just splendid an affair that I can't put in words. I must admit it had been ages I stared at the beauty of the ether, so enchanting and clear. Nonetheless, the second day witnessed an apt photography destination, the Mirjan fort (credits to Pooja for the featured pic) and the refreshing dips in Vibhooti waterfalls, followed by a nice homely lunch.A big thanks the three trek leads who made this experience worth the effort. Pooja has been extremely dynamic and kept the team spirit alive throughout, special mention of her being a poet and stealing the show. Sahil is the sweet jovial person who mingled with all and kept encouraging people to look forward to a satisfying end of the trek. Not to forget Krishna, an experienced leader for Gokarna (thanks for dolphin spotting) who took care not to leave anyone behind in the trek, and managing the itinerary was commendable at his part.All in all, PTU gave an enthralling and happy experience that has made me look forward to more adventures with it. Kudos to the team !!! - by Nikita Mishra for Gokarna Beach Trek & Camping | Plan the Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
Trekking was atomic bomb for me before but Kodachadri trek has changed my mind and soul and now I'm in love with trekking. This was one of the well organized trip with homely healthy food in the homestay which was right at start of the corner of the forest. Nice and chill buttermilk at the very first stop of the trek n then the nature's beautiful shower - Hindlumane falls - all ached in my mind. Finally I found my inner satisfaction as I reached the peak of Kodachadri - the orange light of sun kissing the Arabian sea as the sun had set, was one of the best view I had ever. The fun part of the trek was the crazy jeep ride, the campfire with weird DOG DOG n straw stories n of course the volleyball. Visiting Nagara Fort later next day was a cheery on top.During this trip, I meet very interesting people - energetic,crazy,friends forever,and few more but two of them who will my favourite always are Medha Bhat and Naveen Kushalappa (our very trek leads). They helped and motivated us a lot in finishing the trek. They had been the awesome organizers throughout the journey. And I must say they are crazy like me too. Their trekking stories are making me more eager to do more trekking.From the unknown people on the very first night in the bus to the known crazy like minded people dancing and enjoying on the same bus, in between, we created memories.Love PlantheUnplanned.Readers if you have read this don't wait now hurry up. If you love adventure just book a trip with PTU and get along. - by Subhajeet for Kodachadri Trek with Plan The Unplanned organized by Plan The Unplanned .
