Trip to Gokarna, Murudeshwar and Kollur

This trip with my cousin and his friends was planned a month ago. Initially we decided to go for Gokarna and Goa (if possible). But due to some problems we decided not to go for Goa, as Goa is not a place to be seen in a single day. We started bit late on Friday night, and reached Gokarna in the morning around 10:00. Gokarna beach is a really nice place to visit. It has 4 beaches, and we visited Om Beach. Om Beach is really nice. I never seen a ocean standing on a high hill. It was such good sight seeing. We played in the beach sand and enjoyed the time over there. From there we started around 05:00 to Murudeshwar and reached there by 09:00, we took a cottage near to Beach and it was amazing view of the sea. The sea on three sides surrounds the temple towering on the small hill called Kanduka Giri. Recently a Lord Shiva idol erected beside the temple. The idol towers 123 feet into the sky and is the tallest Shiva idol in the world. We went for a boating inside the sea. In the half way mid, the boat's motor got switched off and we started shouting, every one get down and start pushing the boat :D From there we started to Kollur Mookambika temple. From there we started to Bangalore and reached by morning 05:00. Overall its a nice trip.

which month did u visit Gokarna, we are planning to go by May this Year... How will be the weather conditions during May.. U have any idea? And abt the cottage on the beach side, how much will it cost. We are planning a trip with 15 guys Max.


Hi Subramani, We visited

Hi Subramani,
We visited Gokarna during May. The climate was good for visiting that time. We didnt stayed in the cottage near the Gokarna beach. We stayed in houses near Murudeshwar beach. You have to bargain for the rent. It will be like our regular houses (but newly constructed and neatly maintained houses). We gave around 400 per day for group 10. If go near the temple itself there will be lot ppl calling for renting such houses.
