A guide to Dudhsagar Falls

The Dudhsagar Falls are among the most magnificent natural sites in Goa, drawing visitors from near and far to see them in all their massive, frothy glory. It can be a little tricky to reach them, but once you take in the broccoli tops of the surrounding deciduous forest and all 310 metres of milky white water, you’ll be glad you did.

If you decide to make the trek out to Dudhsagar Falls, here’s everything you need to know.

A breakdown

The Dudhsagar Falls are out on the fringes of southern Goa along the Karnataka border, but they’re at the front in terms of top nature sites in this coastal state. They’re among the tallest waterfalls in India, clocking in at 310 metres tall and around 30 metres wide.

How to get there

Getting to the Dudhsagar Falls can be a little tricky, mostly because there’s no real direct route. It’s not like other major tourist destinations in which the roads are clearly marked and easily accessible. Dudhsagar does have a rail stop, but it’s not one that passengers can expect to exit on. You can take the train to nearby junctions like Castle Rock or Kulem, but even from there you’ll need to take a bus or taxi, or a pretty long walk.

In and around the area

Once you’ve reached the falls, there’s more to do than just stare at them, though that’ll be your first point of interest, of course. Surrounding the area is the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary, which teems with local flora and fauna. The area is also known to be something of a bird watcher’s paradise, so you’d be wise to bring a set of binoculars.
