Strategically located on the Goa-Karnataka border (but mainly in Goa), Dudhsagar Falls attracts thousands of tourists to its bounty. The gushing water from the streams creates an illusion of milk flowing through the hill slopes. Well, to put it straight, ‘Dudhsagar’ literally translates to Sea of Milk describing the milky white water trickling down a height of 1,050m. The 5th highest waterfall in India is one of those picturesque falls that give you goosebumps just by looking at the tremendous force of the gushing water.
If you’ve always thought that Goa is just about beer and beaches, then it’s time that you put on your adventurous boots and join us, as we head off to explore these breathtaking falls. Also included in this trip is a mystery beach, that is bound to leave you awestruck with its raw beauty and picturesque landscapes. We were impressed by these beauties, so we put this itinerary together to let you enjoy these hidden gems on a laid-back holiday to Goa.
Our trek to Dudhsagar Falls begins promptly at 8:30 AM in adherence to stringent guidelines. Access will be restricted beyond 9 AM.
Our journey from Bangalore necessitates an early start, commencing at 5 PM from the initial pickup point. We kindly urge all participants to proactively plan their schedules.
Upon the bus's arrival at each boarding point, we maintain a precise 10-minute waiting period. We kindly request punctual attendance.
As stipulated by the Goa Forest Department, entry to the waterfall is prohibited.
A forest department guide will be allocated for every group of 8 individuals.
Our accommodations will only be accessible after completing the trek. Basic arrangements for refreshment are available at Kulem Village, allowing us to commence the trek at the earliest convenience.
Meals Not Included | (Dinner break ( Self-sponsored ))
We begin our journey on Friday evening. We’ll start early compared to the usual trek as we have over 560 KMs to cover. Reaching on time is very essential as the trek is a long one. So, once we get out of the iconic Bangalore traffic and hit the Mumbai- Bangalore highway, our energetic trek leads will take over. Armed with fun activities & ice-breaking sessions, you’ll soon feel at home after knowing about everyone else on the bus. The trek leads will brief the itinerary of the trip ahead and leave you to catch some much-needed sleep.
Homestay | (Multiple sharing basis separate for men and women Doms / Rooms / Tents)
If you look outside, you should be on the narrow country roads of Goa, surrounded by vast lands of untouched wilderness. Embrace the untouched Goa while we slowly drive into Kulem through winding roads & picturesque landscapes.
The stay is one of the best you can find in Kulem and is only a minute’s walk from where the bus will be parked. Get your luggage, check into the designated rooms & freshen up quickly. Grab breakfast from the buffet table, pick up your packed lunch and start the trek. It is mandatory to have a guide and life jackets along with you. Without these, entry into the national park will be prohibited. The initial walk is along the train tracks. This portion of the trek is about 4 KMs but is the most daunting one of all. It truly tests your patience and endurance while you’re taking baby steps. Watch out for the odd train and get off the tracks. You will be accompanied by chirps of birds, running streams, some hidden waterfalls & of course your new-found family.
No need to rush on this track as we have ample time to cover the rest of the trek, more so because of the slippery rocks on the tracks. After about 4 KMs of walking on the tracks, we enter the jeep trail.
The trail from here is pretty flat and is filled with running water streams and dense evergreen forest stretches. After about 40 minutes of walking, you will reach the village of Sonaulim, which is marked by a shack selling refreshments and a Hindu temple on your right-hand side.
The trail gets narrow from here, as you take a shortcut to avoid a longer jeep trail. The falls are only a 30 Mins walk from here.Once you take the shortcut, you will get to see the adjoining mountain ranges. These ranges are the physical boundaries between Karnataka & Goa. After a walk through the muddy trail, you will encounter a hanging bridge. The bridge is slightly inclined, so be sure to hold onto the rope and walk slowly.
Once on the other side of the bridge, the narrow trail continues until we hit the jeep trail again. You can get the first glimpse of the mighty Waterfall on this trail. And soon after getting a glimpse of the falls, you will see the entrance to Dudhsagar falls. There are changing rooms and a police outpost as well. After crossing a river stream filled with slippery rocks, and water flowing with incredible force, we’ll reach the foot of the fall.
We’ll stop here for lunch and refresh ourselves with a jump into the pool at the foot of the fall.
We’ll head back to basecamp on the same way back and take a refreshing bath.
