Dudhsagar Falls, Goa, India.
The majestic “Dudhsagar Waterfall” located in the Braganza Ghat section of the Western Ghats. It is one of the tallest waterfalls in India measuring about 310m from head to foot. As the Mandovi river enters Goa, its headwaters split into four vertical streams at the very top of the mountain and cascade down a sheer cliff to form the exquisite four-tiered waterfall. During the monsoons the waterfall appears like a river of milk gushing down the mountainside. The surrounding lush greenery and the mist add to the scenic beauty making it look spectacular. Dudhsagar Waterfalls is a must visit adventure destination in Goa. The best way to get a full view of the Dudhsagar Waterfalls is to drive to the base of the falls. The Dudhsagar Tour Operators Association (DTOA) located in the village of Collem, near the falls, has been organizing Jeep Safari tours for the last 21 years (Since 1997). The jeep safari is an adventurous drive through 10km of dense deciduous forests of the Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary and Mollem National Park. The 45 minute drive to the base of the waterfalls will take you meandering through lush green forests, flowing streams and rocky terrain. During the journey you may even spot various animals like deer, monkeys, tropical birds and rare species prevalent in the Western Ghats.
The Dudhsagar waterfall is at its peak splendour during the monsoon, from mid-June to September. Its falls wane out towards the summer from March to early June, but never actually runs dry. The best time to visit the Dudhsagar Waterfalls is from October to May.
