Explore Dudhsagar Waterfall and Trekking in Jungle, Goa on 14th – 15th August 2016.Visit the spectacular waterfall knows as Dudhsagar & Trekking in Jungle in Goa. Dudhsagar is one of the world’s most exquisite falls. It lies high up in the Mandovi River’s watershed and so are so spectacular during the monsoon season when the falls are transformed into one of the most powerful falls in India. Dudhsagar Falls is listed as India’s fifth tallest waterfall and is 227th in the world at 310 m. The water plummets hundreds of meters (over a thousand feet) in large volumes during the rainy monsoon season, forming one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in Goa.There is also a legend associated with this waterfall. It is believed that a beautiful princess lived in the forest (near present day Dudhsagar Falls) in a palace. She loved and enjoyed bathing in a lake nearby and used to drink “sweetened milk” from her “golden jug” after finishing with her bath. One day while enjoying her jug of milk she found herself being watched by a prince, who was standing amongst the trees. Red with embarrassment at her inadequate bathing attire, she poured the jug of milk in front of him to form an improvised curtain to hide her body while the maids rushed to cover her with her dress. It is said that it is that sweetened milk that cascades down the mountain slope as Dudhsagar Falls to this day as a tribute to the virtue and modesty of the princess.This is equally scenic but less popular route. One has to get down at Kuhlem (Collem) railway station and walk towards the falls which is about 11 km away. It normally takes 2–3 hours to reach. The famous photograph of Trains passing through before the waterfalls can be seen in this route and also the complete stretch of the falls will be visible while you hike towards the waterfalls.Itinerary for the trip as below: -Day 1: SundayMeeting Point :Lokamanya Tilak Terminus @ 08.00 Hrs We will be catching the LTT HUBLI Express at 09.05 Hrs.Reach M… Read more
