If you thought Goa is only about beaches, think again! Tucked away in the midst of the dense forests of Goa-Karnataka border is one of India’s tallest waterfall - Dudhsagar which literally means “Sea of Milk”. The waterfall tumbling down from an altitude of 1017 ft is a spectacle by itself. Add to that, the white-as-milk cascade, the rich flora and fauna of the area, the sceneries on the way and the mysticism of the place which combine to make a perfect recipe for a phenomenal getaway. Yes, it’s the same waterfall which caught the fancy of Bollywood in Chennai Express and left the audience awestruck. What makes this trek unique? Well, this is one of those rarest of rare treks where you walk on railway tracks passing through tunnels on the way to reach the falls!! In fact, it is the only way the falls can be accessed.
This season is especially suited for camping near the falls as the flow is just right for sighting, exploration and accessibility to the base unlike in monsoons. Post the trek, camping in the jungle with the flowing streams providing background music will help you de-stress like never before. Watch the jungle unravel its night beauty in front of your eyes as you engage in musical sessions, fun games and story-sharing sitting around the warmth of the campfire with your fellow trekkers.
Embark on this unique expedition with Travel Trikon to have an experience of a lifetime! What are you waiting for?
● Dudhsagar Waterfalls, Waterfall Bridge and Viewpoint
● Trekking on railway tracks passing through jungles
● Forest Camping beside rivulets and streams
● Fun activities and unwinding sessions at the camp
