A region with natural, historical and cultural attractions, Karnataka is the hidden treasure of South India. I particularly enjoy visiting the unique vestiges, reminiscent of this area’s glorious past.

Not many travellers know about Karnataka’s waterfalls. But the ones that do get to experience a magnificent spectacle that will create long lasting memories. The Jog Falls, the second highest waterfalls in the country, will never cease to amaze, as well as the Gokak Falls and the Abbey Falls. These waterfalls are refreshing getaways in the heart of nature that I highly recommend during your trip to south India.

On the coast, Gokarna is undoubtedly my favourite Karnatakan beach, a true haven of peace where one can even surf! Lovers of idyllic landscapes, calm waters and blues will thoroughly enjoy a visit to this unmissable beach.
