Ravi M, managing director Arjun Tours and Travels Private Limited, who was fascinated by the traditional sport of coastal Karnataka is offering the Kambala package. “The idea struck me when a friend who recently attended a kambala posted a few mesmerizing pictures of the traditional sport.

I spoke to kambala organiser Captain Brijesh Chowta and came with a two-day kambala package targeting Bengalureans,” he told TOI.
Ravi said that a good many registered initially but cancelled following the sudden spike in Covid-19 cases in Mangaluru. “Currently 10 persons, including five travel writers, will be part of the package. I haveasked tourism minister CP Yogeeshwara to promote kambala and he was positive, said ” Ravi said, who is also the vice-president of Karnataka Tourism Forum.
The two-day package will also introduce Bengalureans to coastal cuisines and sight-seeing. “The guests will leave to Mangaluru from Bengaluru on March 6 early morning. Later, they will go to watch kambala till evening. The next day, there will be sight-seeing to various tourist places of Dakshina and then the return trip to Bengaluru,” he explained.
