Dudhsagar Waterfalls
The most impressive waterfalls of Goa lie on its eastern border with Karnataka. Measuring a mighty 600m from head to foot, the famous waterfalls at Dudhsagar, on the Goa-Karnataka border, are some of the highest in India, and a spectacular enough sight to entice a steady stream of visitors from the coast into the rugged Western Ghats. After pouring across the Deccan plateau, the headwaters of the Mandovi River form a foaming torrent that fans into three streams, then cascades down a near-vertical cliff face into a deep green pool. Water plummets hundreds of feet in large volume, in cascades, forming one of the most spectacular of all natural phenomena in Goa and a lifeline of our ecosystem in one of our sanctuaries.

Overlooking a steep, crescent-shaped head of a valley carpeted with beautiful tropical forest. Dudhsagar is also set amid breathtaking scenery that is only accessible on foot or by train. It is a popular destination to hikers and trekkers and moreover, its distance of 60 km from Panaji and 10 km from Colem Railway Station.
