Most of us were newbies at trekking and it was a fantastic start. Our guide led us well through the trek and made sure all of us kept up. After a long day of trekking we stayed the night in tents on Kudle beach. The homestay provided for freshening up and the transport to and from Bangalore were quite adequate.

There are things you can put up in words and there are things you cannot, this experience was one of it. The beautiful journey of beach trek is a stretch of 7km where you actually have the best views you could ever ask for. We walked through the beaches, forests, wilderness, and some amazing fish spots. Our trek started in the morning and got over by evening during the sunset. We were not lucky enough to see the sunset as it was a cloudy day. The stay was fantastic as we had a tented accommodation which was right next to the beach and the best moment is when early morning you wake up and find yourself in the middle of the beach. The trek truly assures a rejuvenation and peace in your mind as you keep moving forward from one beach to the other. We even had bonfire at night placed right next to our tents. This journey will always be one of the most adventurous thing you would take up in Karnataka. You might have trekked along the mountainside or riverside but by the beachside? Yes, this trek is one of its kind. The final beach that we visited was indeed the most beautiful one- the paradise beach. On the whole- the journey was amazing and truly something that I would personally cherish forever.
A must-try activity I can assure you that you won't regret it... instructor was professional, safety activity with unexplainable experience.
Great experience and friendly staff, the equipment was good and safe, the activity lasts for 15-minutes but really it was so satisfied in which the expereince was hard to explain in words, I would do this again nearby the future.
I booked this with Thrillophilia and everything was arranged properly. The staff there were very professional helps us with details and demo about the activities. the equipment was good and the instructor was there beside us which we felt safe the whole experience. Nice videos and photos at additional cost but that's okay coz it is once a lifetime expereince.
Once in a lifetime expereince, we really enjoyed boating to the exact location for the activity, the staff was helpful and friendly the dive was amazing with the beautiful corals and cute creatures of the Waterworld... An overall unforgettable experience.
My whole family enjoyed it and this was the best trip with the camping till date. Such a corporative staff we haven’t seen anywhere and also the food was alright. Recommended.
Good deal with Thrillophilia from the price, service, and operator, the bike was dropped off on time and in good condition, the pick-up of the bike as well was smooth...Genuine companies to deal with no doubt would advise others too.
I'm happy with my experience, the pick-up of the bike from the rental company was easy, I had a great ride with a couple of friends there the whole day... and the return of the bike too was easy... Thanks
