The Kuskem waterfall

The Kuskem waterfall is located in the Canacona taluka in South Goa. It is situated in idyllic Kuskem village at about 20 km from the Cotigao wildlife sanctuary off NH 17.

The waterfall at Kuskem is not very well known like the other waterfalls in Goa such as the Dudhsagar and Harvalem waterfalls. It is best visited only during the rainy season as it dries out during the summers. The water falls from a lofty source leaving a clear leap of milky water.

Kuskem is located at around 12km from Hathipal, the entry point of the Cotigao Wildlife sanctuary. It is an ideal place to unwind and for accommodation one can get the forest department’s eco cottages at the sanctuary. One can also visit an ancient temple nearby which is well worth exploring.

The Kuskem waterfall can be visited whilst on the way to the Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary which is the state’s second largest after the Bhagwan Mahaveer wildlife sanctuary. The Anvli waterfall is also located nearby, however it is not easily accessible.
