Top 3 day treks in India: Tambdi-Surla waterfall trek, Goa

Located deep inside the forests of the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, Tambdi Surla waterfall is an off-beat trekking destination in Goa. Tambdi Surla is a gushing waterfall that is truly magnificent in the monsoon, but is a fun trek during the rest of the year too.

On this 3 day trek to the Tambdi Surla Waterfalls, you’ll walk along winding, rocky pathways that will meander uphill through a dense forest. You'll hop over intersecting river streams and climb over boulders, as you explore a little-known paradise of nature. The waterfall flows down a staircase of high mountain cliffs, and you’ll get to take a dip in the small pools that form here.

Top 3 day treks in India: Sandhan Valley Trek, Maharashtra
