Monsoon in Gokarna is a bicycle tour that offers an opportunity to experience some of the untouched parts of India's west coast. This is a journey spanning 3 days and 3 nights, with different landscapes and sights, especially during the monsoon season. To those who are familiar with Gokarna, the name conjures up an array of images and emotions of coastal Karnataka. Many will recall the famous Om beach and adjoining beaches for their hippie culture and the shacks and huts that line this fascinatingly shaped shoreline. Those who love culture, history and architecture will think of Gokarna's many ancient architectural and cultural attractions, with all the mythology they are steeped in. Then there are those of us who love the biking trails that meander through little fishing villages, alongside rivers and backwaters, with breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea and its many pristine beaches. Enjoy a multi-faceted experience over the long weekend, as we explore this stunning piece of coastline and all that it offers, on your bicycles.
