Squeezed in the lap of the Western Ghats and the Arabian sea, every season in Konkan has something unique to offer. Summer is for exploring hidden beaches, water sporting, scuba, scenic mangrove boat safaris, fort trails, wild fruit trails, and more. Winter is for everything summer, plus a major mood for camps and a season of Jatras in Konkan. You get to witness the traditional Dashavtar live theatre in a Jatra. Monsoon is very underrated here. You could witness some of the best treks and waterfall trails in the monsoon. The Malvani cuisine also changes to adapt to seasonal variety and even the beaches hit different every season.

KTC is an incredible team. I am still to come across a team like them. The level of energy and goodwill they bring into a tour is phenomenal. Their primary motivation is for people to see, experience and enjoy konkan, not money. That is why it’s a different experience with KTC. I hope they continue doing what they do and organise many more trips. All the best and hope to join you guys again soon.
