”Dudhsagar” is a means “sea of milk”. Dudhsagar is one of the tallest waterfalls in India. The height of the waterfall is 1017 feet and the width is 100 feet. This waterfall is located at the border of Karnataka and Goa. The waterfall has four tiers and is falling on the Mandovi river which is in Karnataka. The surroundings of the waterfall are covered with thick deciduous forests and contain a highly rich biodiversity. The area is declared as a national park by the name “Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary and Mollem Mational Park”.

When to visit:
One may not enjoy viewing a waterfall without a high force of water. Waterfalls are only enjoyed by the force of the flowing water and the sound created by it. So, considering that, we would not recommend to visit the place in the dry season. Monsoon season in India is the right time to travel to the waterfall. The rains add enough water to the river making the waterfall filled with force. The milky appearance of the falling water in those months gave it the name “Dudhsagar”.

How to visit:

To visit this huge waterfall, one can take a train till the Kulem railway station or the Carambolim (Karmali railway station). another advise is that you should not go to the national park by a normal car as the terrain is quite rough. The jungle track has river crisis at several points on the trail. And if you don’t get access to any private SUV’s or 4WD jeeps, you may easily take a local Jeep as the taxi union has drivers that take you to the waterfall as well as bring you back to Kulem. It is also advisable to buy or carry life carry jackets with you at as the area can be a little slippery near the fall.

What to do there:
The waterfall is really mesmerizing and you would want to keep looking at it forever. The green background for the milky white water is a perfect picturesque scene. But there is more to the waterfall than just the scenery. Tourists can take a dip in the sweet, cold, and refreshing water but cannot dive. This is because the water below has depths that are not uniform and is very rocky.

People can reach there by trekking and enjoy the journey doing it. All the avid trekkers can try trekking in the forest trails and enjoy the sounds of the bio diversity flowing around. The visitors can watch a beautiful array of birds and animals and enjoy the activities of monkeys.

There is also a forest eco camp. This helps you understand the flora and fauna of the regions. They offer elephant rides around the forest and gives you a different experience.

Devcharacho Kond

For those who like to believe and visit places from fairy tales should also believe in devil’s place. Another visit can be “Devcharacho Kond”which literally means “Devil’s Canyon” in Konkani. This canyon is a natural geographical structure formed by rocks. The river Khandepar has a passage through the forest and crosses this canyon. As beautiful as it looks, it is quite dangerous to swim at a place like this. It has strong underground currents and they may suck one into the rocky bottom depths. So, remember not it dive into this bottomless pit.

While you are there, you can observe the traditional method of farming done by the people of Goa. The greenery organized precisely well will sure inspire you to join the ‘go green’ motto.

What does the Legend Say? :

There is a history associated with almost every scenic place and so is with Dudhsagar waterfalls. Locals tell us that before there was a waterfall at that place, there was a kingdom and there lived a beautiful princess. The pretty princess used to take bath in a nearby lake/river and drink milk from a golden jug after that. One day, while she was doing her daily rituals of bathing and drinking milk, she saw a handsome prince watching her from behind the trees. Embarrassed about her inadequate dress up for bathing, she poured the jug of milk in order to cover herself from the stranger’s gaze. The locals believe that the milk poured by the legendary princess still flows down along the mountain in the form of Dudhsagar waterfall.

Important note:
The government of India has now announced that no halt will be provided at the Dudhsagar rail station and also stated that the tourists must stay away from the rail track and should not trek in that area. It is an offense to trek along the railway track in the area as it endangers the passengers’ lives.

There is no good reason to think twice about this place. It has got it all, beautiful scenery, nature, adventure, peace, waterfall, wildlife and what else do you desire from God. the place is not too far from Goa and is accessible easily. What are we waiting for? Pack your bags already!
