Full Moon Sea Shore Night Trek at Nishkalank Mahadev, Bhavnagar

Nishkalank Mahadev Temple is situated at Koliyak village in Bhavnagar District near GHOGHA at the Gulf of Khambhat. This temple is buried inside the sea. The sea everyday withdraws, paving way for the devotees to offer their prayers and can only be visited during low tide hours. The trek is planned from Koliyak beach to Kuda beach. Kuda village is on the north side which has a clean pristine beach. Approximate distance from Koliyak is 4 km. It is a treat to walk on clean sand between calm waters on one side and Acacia shrubs on the other side. Lights of Dahej Industrial establishment and Lighthouse of PIRAM Island will accompany us. MOONRISE is a visual treat to mark the start as SUNRISE will be an apt end.

Youth Hostels Association of India Ahmedabad's main unit deeply mourns the sad demise of Youth Hosteller D.K.Shah, a very devoted and dedicated member to the cause of YHAI. He had a versatile personality and was very popular not only with elders but also with children. His sudden exit from this world has created a vacuum that can never be filled up. God bless his noble soul. Om Shanti.
