==Understand==
 
Kundapura is ideally situated at the centre of Karnatakas coastal belt and gives vistors the possibility to easily explore the interesting and diverse surroundings. Due to its well organized local bus system Kundapura allows you to reach the Western Ghats, Karnatakas Hinterland and other lovely beach strips in no time. Further mobility is secured by the train station which has frequent trains to [[Bombay]], [[Goa]] and [[Kerala]].
 
 
 
The Western Ghats are Indias bio-diversity hot spot and a nice, chilly place in the hot, tropical souther part of the subcontinent. Astonishing wild life, beautiful tea and coffee plantations, unspoiled forests and a green, hilly landscape will make sure that your trip to this mountain range will become one of your favorites. The mild climate will ease your body and leave you non sweating but this region is much more than just relaxing. Trekking is a must for every sporty tourist and maybe you will find some hidden waterfall which invites you to take a refreshing shower.

==Kundapura Railway Station (KUDA)==
 
  
Kundapura is one of the major railway station on Konkan Railway route. For the outside visitors/devotees this is alighting point to visit 3 important ancient temples in the region. Shree Vinayaka Temple, Anagudde (7km), Shree Mookambika Temple, Kollur (38km) & Shree Sharadamba Temple, Shringeri (less than 80km). There is no direct local bus service from Kundapura New Bus stand to the Railway station. From the New bus stand or from Shastri circle you can catch a bus to railway station and they will drop you at a a place near the railway station. From there a lonely road of about 1 to 1.5 kn takes you to the station. You can however get an auto from anywhere in Kundapura town to drop you directly at the Kundapura station, but the cost obviously will be much higher than what you pay for a bus ticket.

Kundapura to Bombay is nearly 950 km, while Bangalore is shorter at 474 km, both roads being fabulous.

*Visit '''Kodi beach'''. A very lovely beach with white sands and absolute privacy. Best way to reach is to catch a local bus that goes to the stop on the highway (towards Udipi) that is closest to Kodi beach(only local buses stop at this stop, express buses do not stop) and get down in the highway, cross the road and catch an auto to go to the beach. Kodi beach it's about 1.5 to 2 km inside from the highway. There is very infrequent bus service from Kundapura New bus stand to Kodi beach directly, however you may find autos both at the highway that take you from Highway to Kodi beach and at the Kodi beach which will bring you back to the highway. You will get plenty of buses in the highway going to Kundapura new bus stop.
