ShikhaHiking and Treks

Will the fight between the inner and outer self ever come to an end?
No. Not until we learn the art of balancing it.
In the run of time, riding over the bandwagon of getting ahead we tend to lose our inner self. A major chunk of the day is spent in fighting to get ahead of others instead of spending it on ourselves. A potential solution to this problem of life is CHANGE. In the garden of this world, every flower is different. And to enjoy the beauty of as many flowers as possible, is the key to life. Typically, our daily lives rarely exhibit a significant change.   

Travelling is one thing that takes us places, both physically and spiritually.
And now that the best time for trekking and travelling in India is around the corner, let us introduce you to a few treks suitable for all forms of travellers.

Gokarna is a temple town surrounded by beaches on three sides, and hills on the fourth. It is a lazy town that sleeps by 10 in the off-season, and goes on all night, during the peaks. It’s a town that offers you scooters and auto rickshaws, but the best mode to see it is on foot.

Its beaches are just a few kilometres away from each other, at the end of breathtaking landscapes. But once you set yourself on a beach, it’s hard to leave before sunset.
