Manipal is a town in coastal Karnataka (NOT in Sikkim!), about 60-odd kilometres from Mangalore (and 7 kms from Udupi). Being famous for having one of the best private universities in the country, this place has fast evolved from being a sleepy town with old-world charm, to becoming a 'happening, cool' place, with high rises dotting the skyline. However, the place also abounds in natural beauty, and it requires a drive of just a few kilometres out of the main town square to reach pretty villages, streams & backwaters, or even thick forests a little farther.
The End Point, as the name suggests, is simply the edge of the town. The view from the hill is very pretty; the sun rays glistening on the sea surface at the edge of the horizon looks beautiful. Catching the sunset from this point can be exhilarating. Also, the serpentine Swarna river, flowing to join her final destination, looks very nice as well. Sharing a set of three pictures, from an evening spent at End Point.
