I have taken this trek on march 2018, in my experience it was one of those refreshing trip wherein we trek between the mountains in the safe jungle to the relaxing beaches followed by rain dance, bonfire and the beach side camping under the stars, I must say tremendous effort has been put up by Rohith (trek coordinator) and the entire Trillophilia Team to make the trip comfortable and memorable, would like to travel with Thrillophilia again, highly recommended!

"I'm from Chennai and personally speaking this was a best experience of a beach trek in my life. If you want to experience something wild, explore nature's beauty, dance and have fun in the beach water and sand and feel the bliss of staying in tents in the night time, go for it, its worth it. I'm suggesting my friends this place who are all planning for trips. Also to mention our trek leads Shravani and Dhruv kudos to them as well. It's not a easy job to arrange and coordinate with different sets of people and make a successful trek. They made this to be a memorable one. I and my friends had a good time those 2 days and packed up the trip with lots of memories to cherish. People reading my reviews, go for this because it's something special"

If you want to see the best of Gokarna, you have to take the beach trek Gokarna. I was especially happy with the guide as he carefully navigated the difficult paths and always gave us the option of stopping if we were exhausted. Our food timings were clearly informed, and the food was healthy and filling. Who would say I paid only 2100 INR for the wonderful Gokarna trekking experience?

I had never imagined such a well-executed trip for the throw away price of 2,100 INR! Thrillophilia is redefining budget travel! The sales team, the operator, and even the trek guide were all helpful and courteous and made sure I was not uncomfortable as I was traveling solo with the group! Gokarna beach trek and camping gave me an adventurous and entertaining two days!

Gokarna trekking was a wholesome experience for me and my whole family! We could take our kids and our parents. Gokarna trek is the perfect trek for families as it can accommodate all ages. Thank you to Thrillophilia for the brilliant arrangements! We did not have to worry about a single booking, and even the tents were provided to us!

Visiting gokarna was a amazing experience, away from city life, it gives that peace and silence that one requires in life from time to time.Just sitting near the beach and feeling the waves touch your feet that makes you feel like you are floating early in the morning with a feeling that you are the only person there being carried away by the presence of endless sea is an experience worth ones time. Its a place to relax, rather than call it a trek, as one doesn't walk much. Journey with thrillophilia went really well with a trek lead who was a friendly person.Even though the first night in the bus with a small group of people was awkward, it was fun and enjoyable the next two days.Stayed an ocean scenery,the host received us well.The temp was hot in the afternoon , played volleyball which took away our energy but it was one of the highlights of the trip. The camp fire during the night time with everyone sharing stories was a good experience. On the way back to bangalore visited mirjan fort on jan 26th jan, Good for clicking photos as well. The food was average. I'd like to suggest that instead of trying to visit every possible beach which is exhausting it would be better to visit fewer beaches a spend enough time and enjoy what the nature offers.The people that I travelled with were entusiastic and fun to be with thorugh out the journey. The only drawback of the trip was the van it was not a comfortable as I expected. Overall it was a great experience and suggest people to visit gokarna.

"It was an amazing trekking trip, it's kind of a beach walk so don't expect long trekkings. Gokarna's beaches are surrounded by hills so we have to climb the hills to reach some beaches like half moon, paradise and belekan beach. It was well organized. I was not happy with the transportation part, bus does not have enough leg space even for normal height people. And food was just average. I liked the trekking part and enjoyed. "
