What’s funny:

           As you wriggle out of the highway, you can see a board hanging which says “Karwar- Kashmir of Karnataka”. You’ll be wondering and linking the similarities between Kashmir and Karwar.

Is it Ocean? Is it Snow? High Altitude Mountains?

                                                Or

Just Local administration’s attempt to increase the tourist inflow?!!

Extravagant thinking!!!

What didn’t worked:

  •  Humidity dishevel with you if not acclimatized.
  • People are less talkative and look so glum that you may start feeling dejected.
  • If you are planning to camp on the beaches, make sure there are no locals who drink like there’s no tomorrow and become riotous.

Best season to visit:

           Winter months of November, December, January and October also seems right time if incessant rain has stopped.

Getting there:

          Buses and Trains ply to Karwar from Bangalore, Mangalore, Kochi and Mumbai frequently / own vehicle is always better if you have plan of getting around the city.

What to pack:

          Cotton cloths, Cowboy hat, Floaters, Life Jacket, Cold Cream, Medications, Glucose, Kayaks, Sunscreen if you are visiting during summer.

Where to stay:

Many resorts flourish in Karwar but the best one according to the survey is in the midst of Kurumgad Island. It has luxuriantly grown Mangoes and other trees which obviously fail to interest common man!.

Why “Karwar Calling Again”?

  • It’s because of the complications involved in weaning away from kayaking. Indulging in Kayaking is as addictive as smoking pot.

    Kayaking

    Kayaking

  • To see mesmerizing beauty of Karwar, especially sunset viewed from Kali River Bridge.

  • Visit Kali temple at the top of the hill and famous mosque which is down the same hill to get preoccupied with what concerns human inner nature the most and to understand that “Peace” is same at both the holy places.
  • To paddle far enough from the shore until you feel you are viewing karwar from higher astral plane and watch the sea turn Orange as last streaks of golden ray falls over it and all the distant buildings on the land get dolled up in pretty lights.
