Located on the border of Goa and Karnataka, within the Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary and Mollem National Park, the Dudhsagar waterfall on the Mandovi river in Goa, is one of the tallest in India. This four-tiered waterfall cascades down a vertical rock face, from a height of over 1000 feet, sending a spray of mist in all directions and churning the water below to milky white, hence the name Dudhsagar, meaning 'sea of milk'.About the trek to Dudhsagar Falls
This adventure trek to Dudhsagar Falls, Goa takes you across state lines, from Maharashtra to the border of Karnataka and Goa. There are no roads leading to this location, and the only way to get close is by train. The journey therefore begins with an exciting overnight train journey. After you disembark at the closest station, you'll trek along the railway track until you reach the base of the Dudhsagar falls.When to go for the Dudhsagar trek
Throughout the year, the trek to Dudhsagar is beautiful, but during the rainy season, the waterfall becomes a thundering force of nature. You'll walk through heavily forested trails that are alive with the sights and sounds of nature. En route, you'll cross streams, scramble over slippery stones, and walk along dark train tunnels to get to Dudhsagar waterfall. Beneath the falls, there is a natural pool filled with frothing white water. According to local legend, a princess used to bathe in the Dudhsagar falls every day, and then drink sweet milk from a golden jug. One day, she saw someone watching her as she drank her milk, and poured the milk over herself, to preserve her modesty. You will not be able to swim or get into the water under Dudhsagar waterfall as it is very powerful and the sheer force has taken many lives, however you can swim in pools along the trekking trail.
