When you are in the midst of scenic beaches, lush forests and craggy rocky paths, walking is one of the most wonderful ways of discovering a place. The beautiful town of Gokarna is easily accessible by foot and short auto rides.
With most places within walking distance from each other, pull up your socks for leisurely strolls and fun sprints. If after a long day of lazing around and sightseeing, walking is just not on your mind, you can hire any of the autos crowding the parking area of various beaches.

The autos don’t charge more than INR 60 for long distances and INR 10 for short distances. The narrow roads in Gokarna can be slightly tricky so the auto driver can tend to charge higher than usual depending on the place.
For the adventurous,
 trekking is another way you could explore the enthralling town. Connected by small cliffs, almost all the beaches in Gokarna can be reached by traversing through wild shrubs and uneven paths. Make sure to carry a sturdy pair of sneakers for these little trekking trips. It is also suggested not to trek during the evening lest you lose your way. You’ll also be thrilled to find ‘boat taxis’ offering you a mind-blowing ride from one beach to another. Though slightly on the expensive side with INR 100 per person, it is an experience of a lifetime.

Walk, hop or gallop your way around this surreal town. A world of hidden treasures, hidden spots, pristine beaches await to be discovered.

The autos charge Rs 150 for Gokarna to Om Beach one way. Within Gokarna town, walking is the best mode.

Walking is obviously free but there's some up and down terrain involved so watch out
