Event Type : 2 day weekend Trek

Jog Falls (Kannada: ಜೋಗ ಜಲಪಾತ), created by the Sharavathi River falling from a height of 253 meters (829 ft) is the highest plunge waterfall in India, located in Shimoga District of Karnataka state, these segmented falls is a major tourist attraction.


GOKARNA Beach

Apart from Shiv temple, Gokarna is famous for its beautiful beaches and landscapes. The main beaches in Gokarna are the Gokarna beach, Kudle Beach, Om Beach, Half moon Beach and Paradise Beach (also known as Full moon). The Gokarna beach forms the coast of the town while the other four beaches lie to the south of Gokarna. Kudle and Om are around 6 km from Gokarna town along a muddy hill; they are accessible by rickshaw or foot. Half moon and Paradise are beyond Om beach and are accessible only by foot or boat. Om beach is named so because it is shaped like the auspicious ॐ [Om] symbol. Om beach is the only naturally Om shaped beach. Two other beaches - Paradise and Half Moon - are smaller and remote beaches .

    A really great trekking experience.
    Had a loads of fun with my trekkers.
    The Dosa House, the beach lunch, OM beach , boat ride, camp fire :P, unchalli falls and the hot water bath and finally the train travels brought a lot of memorable incidents into my diary.
    Thanks everyone for this successful trip. And special thanks to Sarita and Priya without whom I would not had come.

    Hello Folks, I couldn't upload the pics yesterday due to hectic schedule and Monday morning blues, I will do it today or, by tomorrow latest. Going through each of your comments suggests that all of us had one heck of a trip and already fallen victim to nostalgia. My "Thanks" to all of you for a fabulous and memorable trip. For the very first time, I loved the idea of being 'disconnected' from civilization due to non availability of network and the redundancy of charging my cell phone. Lack of television or news made sure we channelized all our energies to enjoy pure nature and break the mundane mould which we live in. As I sign of, I take inspiration from avid trekkers, responsible mothers and professionals alike who have taken their time out of the busy schedules to enjoy nature in each others company.

    Hola,

    What a group it was, walked as if they are running :D

    Thanks everyone for making this event successful. Feeling happy that we've covered all beaches in Gokarna in very less time (4-5 hours :D), of course in that we spent more time for eating :D

    Playing on Paradise beach was so pleasant.

    The camp fire was super, so as the foreigners.

    Second day early morning wake up, reach Jog before the gates opened, hot HOT water bath and then visit of Jog in early morning light before sunrise.

    Going to Unchalli falls, the road was so awesome that I don't have words to express, and the UNCHALLI, the amazing falls.

    First day heavy food and second day brunch after lunch time :P Thanks for underdtaning.

    Thanks everyone again, and special thanks to photographers as always.

    And how can I forget the sunset, boat ride.. They were also amazing.

    See you all soon.. :) Share the pics too asap :D And share your experiences too.. :)

      Hi Charan, I am having a problem transferring funds to your account as the same needs to be registered before a fund transfer is done according to my bank (HSBC). I also understand that Mohan is dropping out, I can take his place if thats alright. also suggest an alternative mode of transfer if the above is not convenient for you.
