Karwar beach packages will cover Chikmagalur, the Coffee Land of Karnataka and Udupi, the place famous for Krishna temple, along with Karwar. On arrival at Bangalore Airport/Railway Station, our tour operators will take you to Chikmagalur where you’ll visit an ancient tank Ayyanakere and spend time recuperating from the long travel; the rest of the day will be spent at a hotel in Chikmagalur.
Chikmagalur is a hilly region with lot three interesting summits to cover such as Seethalayanagiri, Mullayanagiri, and Bababudangiri. The first hill Seethalayanagiri is covered driving across winding paths that lead to a famous Shiva temple located at the top of the hill, which got its name from the words “Sheethala” meaning “cold” and “Ayya” representing “Lord Mallikarjuna or Shiva.”
Mullayanagiri is a favorite spot for trekkers due to its winding path leading to the tip of the peak scaling 1,930 m, the highest next to Himalaya in India, where a saint Mullappa Swamy meditated.
Bababudangiri is the next place covered consisting of hill ranges, Kavaikal Gandi viewpoint, Honnammana halla and Nellikai Theertha or Manikyadhara (waterfalls, the latter flow throughout the year and remains cool). The second night is spent at the hotel.
On the third morning, post breakfast, you’ll set out for Udupi, the coastal town with a hot, humid climate quite different from cool, hilly Chikmagalur. Despite the heat, you’ll love the calming breeze and activities near the Malpe beach. Your next destination is St. Mary’s Island, located around 7 km from Udupi off the Malpe port, taking around 30 minutes on the boat. It is a small beach measuring around 300 m long and 100 m wide, having coconut and palm trees. The third night is spent at a hotel in Udupi.
Day four starts with a breakfast, visiting Maravanthe beach, considered as the most beautiful beach in Karnataka. Souparnika River flows closely divided by a narrow stretch of land for 10 km before joining the sea.
Murudeshwara beach is distinct with a gigantic statue of meditating Shiva on the beach, facing the land and the hills ahead of the sea on the other side.
Your next destinations are Gokarna and Om beaches which take the form of “Om,” the sacred symbol and a mantra used in Hindu scriptures for meditation.
The fifth morning starts with breakfast, hotel check out, and a drive to Kurumgad and Devbagh beaches. Kurumgad is a small island looking like a tortoise, famous for pristine beauty and Lord Narasimha Temple. Devbagh is a great location for watersports such as diving, snorkeling, and banana rides. You may also sight dolphins during the boat rides. This will be your last day of the tour and you’ll spend the night spent at a hotel/resort.
On the sixth day, you’ll be checking out from the hotel and reaching the airport/railway station for the return journey.
