Train from Mumbai to Hospet & then on to Gokarna

We are flying into Mumbai in February and would like to travel by train to Hospet. After visiting Hampi for a few days we then want to travel by train to Gokarna. We have tried to find direct trains without any luck and are not sure which stations are best to travel through to get to each destination.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The daily trains which would connect are via Kolhapur.

The other option would be to go via Londa.

From Hospet you would be better off taking a bus to Karwar for Gokarna.

No sorry you do not have a rail link to Gokarna as it is still not connected, from hospet you can go upto Hubli by train and again from Hubli you need to catch the bus or taxi. The nearest station to Gokarna is probably Ankola or Karwar but unfortunately there are no trains to either of these places directly from Hospet. But you can do one thing since you are travelling from Mumbai there are trains from Mumbai to Karwar on konkan route and from Gokarna you can come upto Hubli by road and then catch a train to Hospet

The nearest railhead to Gokarna seems to be Ankola, which is about 20 kms. While there is no direct rail connectivity, you may consider changing trains either at Madgoan or Mangalore. The other option would be to travel by train till Hubli and take alternate options from there on.
