Let’s bid adieu to 2018 with a bang and what better place to do just that than the serene beaches of Gokarna this new years eve. Let out the hippie in you as we spend a few nights under the open skies with just the music of the waves and the sand in your feet for company. You can’t ask for a better setting to reflect on the best of what 2018 offered and simply leave out all the rest while dancing away your worries and rejuvenating your souls for what 2019 has in store!. Join us with your best of buddies or join us solo and make some new ones of your own. It’s new years eve and anythings possible with Plan The Unplanned!

Event Details:

When we hear about treks, we imagine lofty mountains or lush green hills. Well, if you want to try something entirely different, then here’s a chance to join us for the Gokarna Beach Trek.

Gokarna is a small beach town on the coast of the Arabian sea, home to a must-visit Hindu Pilgrimage site – the Mahabaleshwar temple. This quaint little town gets equal attention for its many calm and clean beaches; tourists from across the country, as well as foreigners, are drawn to the beauty of the town. To really experience the sanctity and sightliness of Gokarna, we recommend trekking along the coastline and exploring one striking beach after another. You are bound to be a victim of love at first (beach) sight!

Day 0 (29th Dec) – Depart for Gokarna

We begin our journey from Bangalore in the late evening after picking up trek participants from various pick-up locations. We will be covering a distance of 500 kms to reach Gokarna overnight and the aim is to reach on time hence, all travellers are expected to have a light dinner before boarding. As we hit the road, the trek leads will give you a brief summary about the trek and then get you acquainted with your fellow travellers through the signature PlanTheUnplanned intro session. By the time dawn arrives, you’ll feel right at home with all of your fellow travellers!

Day 1 (30th Dec) – The Gokarna Beach Trek

If you look outside your window, you will spot salt farms in the near distance. This means that we are now just minutes away from our destination.  Carry your belongings into the campsite, freshen up, have a bite to eat and get ready to start the trek to the base point.

Belekan Beach: Our first day of trekking will start from Belekan beach (Look towards the rocky edges of the beach and if you are lucky, you just might spot dolphins!)  Enjoy the panoramic view and set off on an exciting day of trekking.

Paradise Beach: A pristine beach which is a combination of rocky terrain and clean white sand. Paradise beach is exactly what it sounds like – it is considered one of the cleanest beaches with the collective effort of tourists and the abstract paintings on the rocks add to the character of the place.

Half Moon beach: This beach gains its name due to its resemblance to the shape of a half moon. Here’s when you get to relax and enjoy your peaceful surroundings. Make sure you have some snacks and water because we reach this beach around lunchtime. Ahead of the Half Moon Beach, you will find a huge rock called the Rock of Peace – it is the throne to witness one of the best sunsets, you will know why it’s named Rock of Peace only after you have experienced it. The whole world looks artistic from here, music starts playing on your mind, the colour of the sky changes every minute and if it’s your lucky day you get to spot dolphins on the Arabian coastline!

Om Beach: We then trek ahead to a beach shaped in the form of the Hindu “Om symbol” and hence its called Om Beach. It is around 2.5-3 kms from Half Moon Beach and the trail is a moderate one. Shop atrangi hippie accessories, buy souvenirs, ride a jet ski, pass around the frisbee or play beach volleyball on this beach which is undoubtedly a hub for hippies!

Kudle Beach: Our last (and best) beach destination is Kudle Beach which is a popular tourist spot, well-known for authentic seafood, woodfired pizzas and good music in the evenings. Every dish in every restaurant here is served with a view. The cool breeze, slow sound of the waves and the growing tides are a perfect finish for the day.

We now head back to Gokarna beach where a thrilling sunset rain dance awaits to energise our tired bodies. Freshen yourselves up after a long day of trekking before gathering around a campfire to warm yourself up, sing to the tunes of your favourite songs on karaoke night and fall asleep under the starry skies in your cosy tents.

Day 2 (31st Dec) – Explore Gokarna

Wake up early and catch the sunrise or sleep in and take it slow. Today we go by your rules. Explore the chilled out vibes of Gokarna town and do a bit of souvenir shopping or simply laze around the campsite and get high on vitamin sea! No trip with Plan The Unplanned is complete without a bit of unplanned adventure! 

However do make sure you return to the campsite by 5 PM as you don’t want to miss out on the new years eve celebrations we’ve got planned for you. We’ll be starting off the evening with some beautiful live performances by local artists followed by some exciting beach games. Don’t forget to catch the last sunset of 2018 in between all the fun!

Have your last meal for 2018 in style with a gala buffet and candle light dinner before we sit back and enjoy an exciting fire show and fly away your sky lanterns in traditional new years eve fashion. Wish yourselves a happy new year and welcome 2019 with a bang!
