Dudhsagar Waterfall Goa (India)

The property

OVERVIEW

Dudhsagar falls in Goa are a pleasant change in landscape for a destination that is known for its sunny beaches and inviting waves. The majestic falls are a little farther inland approximately 60 km from Panaji on the Goa - Karnataka Border. As these falls are located inside the Mollem National Park, their vistas of green and verdant forest lands are unparalleled. Cascading from the mighty peaks of the Western Ghats, these are among the highest waterfalls in the country and one of the hundred highest waterfalls in the world. The falls are divided into four tiers on the Mandovi river and resemble a heavy rush of milk flowing effortlessly down the hill. While most people arrive at the Dudhsagar falls by jeep or by their own private transport from Panaji and nearby areas, others choose visiting the falls through a train journey or by trekking. No matter which way you choose, the whooshing noise of the water hitting the rocks, the cold breeze, and endless flows of the whitewashed falls are sure to captivate you.

Best Time

During monsoon or soon after monsoon is the best period to visit the falls, as they are in their most rebellious phase of flow and in full verve. However, be careful while choosing the trekking routes to Dudhsagar Falls during this season as the area can become quite slippery along with the added hazard of the river swelling up. Please note that while the beauty around the falls is still glorious in the summers, the falls themselves may not appear in their full strengths. Therefore, its best to avoid visiting the falls in the summers.
