7. Scuba diving off Murudeshwar

The northern edge of Karnataka is home to Murudeshwar, where the huge Shiva statue, installed in an impressive shrine, shadows the fishing village below. The spiritual joy comes from visiting the heart-shaped Netrani Island about 20 km off the shore to explore the aquatic animals.

Visibility is much better than most other destinations in India, so recreation dives with PADI-certified instructors offer a chance to spot many exotic creatures.

8. Camping at Harangi Dam backwaters

The loneliness of the outdoors, the crisp clean air, and the chance to wake up to the calming sight of the forest and the water. In fact, these are the antidotes to the life of the city in the backwaters of the Harangi Dam, just off Kushalnagar in Kodagu.

The little-known 3-acre personal camping spot is part of the Eco Habitat Homestay. And it is the perfect way to get back to the basics. Coffee estate, bamboo thickets, and calm waters surround the property, which is well off the main road.
