Gokarna trek and camping...... This was my first trek with my daughter, though it sounded difficult at the beginning, every bit of it was adventurous, also camping by the shore was amazing. Boating at the backwaters, short stopover at Mirjam Fort known for its architectural elegance was a bonus point, breath-takingly beautiful, last stop at the jog falls was indeed nature's blessing. Thank you team for your great efforts.
