  • Trip introduction

    On this trek to the Tambdi Surla Waterfalls, trek over 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. As you get closer to your destination, you'll hear the familiar sound of a waterfall flowing through the forest. Upon reaching the waterfall, you can bathe under its cascading waters as they flow down over a staircase of high mountain cliffs.

    Destination

    Located deep inside the forests of the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, Tambdi Surla waterfall is an off-beat trekking destination. At the base of the waterfall, there is a historic Mahadeva Temple built with stone and ancient architecture. The waterfall, close to the Goa-Karnataka state border, is best visited during the monsoon season. As the rains turn the mountains green, the waterfall begins flowing with a gushing sound that can be heard by approaching trekkers from quite a distance.
