Konkan: Pictures & Photos of Coastal Kokan trip
Konkan is the Coastal strip in western India, running from north to south of Maharashtra state and ends in Goa. Characterized by White sand beaches and clean sea water, Greenery, Palm trees, Paddy fields, religious places and sparse population make this strip an ideal laid back beach vacation. Konkan railway connectivity and good road transport is increasing the tourism value of konkan.
Sometime you experience the shades of goa in konkan. MTDC (Maharashtra Tourism) is building hotels in velneshwar and other places. MTDC already has good hotel facilities at Ganpatipule.
My visit with Uday was to his ancestral home. Situated amongst small green interior villages, decorated by creeks, secluded serene and clean beaches, and greenery everywhere, it was a reflection of beautiful konkan. And these villages are the places where everybody knows your name.
