Exploring The Best Of Karnataka
Besides, in Karnataka there are many incredible places to go and have a time ball. There is plenty to discover in the beautiful state of Karnataka, from wildlife attractions and coffee plantations to stunning beaches and historical places.
Obviously, this magnificent coffee area and hill-station is the first reference in our list–Coorg. Known as the Kodavan Country, Coorg is the ideal getaway to dive into nature's lap. See sites include the Tibetan settlement of Nagarhole National Park, Bylakuppe and Dubare Elephant Camp, among others.
The UNESCO World Heritage site is a must for history buffs, to get a glimpse of Vijanagar's rich history. It is also said to have been the home of Lord Rama that Hampi is very important. Virupaksha Temple is the star attraction while the Siva Temple, the Royal Enclosures and the Queen's Bath are also within walking distance. Don't forget to go by boat to the hippie side and spend a relaxing time.
Enthusiasts for wildlife will certainly like Kabini, where you can switch to a luxurious resort and spend your time with your tiger by signing up for safaris.
Food lovers definitely should include Mangalore in their Karnataka list of places to visit. The town next to the beach is ideal for enjoying Mangalorean cuisine with Kori Gassi, Chicken Ghee Roasts, Mangalore Buns, Neer Dosa and seafood.
Commonly known as the Goa of a poor man, Gokarna may lack glamour and glitter, but it offers four beautiful beaches (Om, Paradise, Kudle and Half Moon). It's also a religious hub and the famous Shiva Temple can be explored.
