Karnataka

At the mouth of the powerful Kali river is the port town of Karwar. Its borders defined by the stoic Western Ghats standing on guard on one side and stretches of beautiful palm beaches facing the Arabian Sea on the other. It has long been valued as a sheltered harbor and trade center for pepper and muslin cloth and was used by Arab, Dutch, Portuguese, French and later British merchants.

The pristine golden sands, magical waterfalls and peaceful valleys of Karwar have found a definitive mention in Rabindranath Tagore’s memoirs as “a fit place in which to realize that the beauty of nature is not a mirage of imagination, but reflects the joy of the infinite and thus draws us to lose ourselves into it.”
