Some of us love the beaches, and some of us love the mountains. While it can be easy to decide for many whether you are a beach person or a mountain lover, some of us can be drawn equally to both. We love the sound of the crashing waves and the vast panoramas of the hilly landscape. If you are someone like this, then there is a solution to your confusion.

Now you can trek along the beaches in India, which allows you the pleasure of both.
