Aquatic adventures go beyond the beach in Goa. The state is also home to Dudhsagar Falls, a spectacular four-tiered waterfall that towers some 310 meters above the earth. It’s one of India’s tallest waterfalls and a perpetually popular attraction for day trips around Goa and Karnataka.
To reach the falls, you’ll need to make your way to the village of Colem by taxi or train. Depending on which train route you take, you may get a glimpse of Dudhsagar Falls along the way. Then, you’ll hop aboard a shared jeep through the jungle, passing Devil’s Canyon along the way. Around 45 minutes later, you’ll scurry over some boulders to finally reach the falls.
The best time to visit Dudhsagar Falls is right after the monsoon, when the water is gushing. Tourists who wish to take a dip can rent a life jacket from vendors at the attraction.
Hot tip: Only 300 jeeps are allowed to enter Dudhsagar Falls every day.
