Discover the beatiful karnataka's coastline on kayak, camp on the most beautiful beach.
In the month of May, 2018. I successfully completed my solo kayaking journey of Karnataka's coastline. It took me 8 days to kayak the coastline of Karnataka. It was a journey that I will never forget. Watching the beautiful western ghats falling into the Arabian sea, the dolphin dancing around my kayak, beautiful sunrise behind the mountains. The trip was a mesmerising experience. It became a story worth sharing for the years to come.
I believe that more of us should see what I saw. It is one of the most beautiful things to see in Karnataka(arguably India).
We will start the trip at Kamal Jungle Beach(near Karwar). The trip will end at Murdeshwar.
During the kayaking journey we will cross Ankola, Gokarna, Kumta, Honnavar and Apsarkonda.
We get up early in the morning. Have fruits, milk and protine suppliment as breakfast. Halt during noon for 1.5 hour to have lunch at local beach hotel. Start post lunch break and finish an hour before sunset for camping. At night if there is any restaurant on the beach, we can have food at the restaurant, otherwise we will eat pre-prepared food that we will be carrying with us
Since every day we will have 8 hours to paddle an average 20km. We need to maintain slow speed of 2.5km/hours of paddling.
All the participants are required to go through the kayaking tranining before participating in this event. After finishing the training there is very less chance of any incident. In case if there is any accident we will contact local hospital/coast-guard for the rescue.
