Honnavar lies in Uttara Kannada in the state of Karnataka (in S. India). It is here that the Sharavathi River meets the Arabian Sea.
If you remember the post on Jog Falls, you might remember that it is the drop of the Sharavathi River that forms that waterfall that is quite a spectacle in the Monsoon months. When we visited Jog Fall in late October last year, I wished I could see where the river emptied itself, but that could not be worked into the itinerary.
Fortunately, later in the year, while were were road-tripping along the Karnataka coast, I got a few glimpses of Honnavar and the estuary of the Sharavathi. Here are a few shots from this coastal area:
