Karnataka: The mountain and the sea
Take a slightly challenging route weaving in and out of the Western Ghats. Start from one beach and end with another exploring rainforests, great food, magnificent temples, and ancient caves along the way. There are lots of options too – from kayaking to King Cobras!
What iO thinks
Karnataka has always been underrated. Once a great empire, the ruins that remain are scattered throughout the land. To travel along narrow village roads and explore this is an incredible option. This is one of those journeys where the cultural elements are very well balanced with the natural ones. It is a great journey for those who would love to cycle through a bit of diversity.
