Dudhsagar Falls Goa, India: The video shows the majestic Dudhsagar Waterfalls near Goa in its full glory during peak monsoon season. Located in Western Ghats surrounded by dense forest, creates breathtaking scenes with deluge rushing down from 300 ft. One can spend several hours appreciating the sheer beauty of falls and natural surroundings. A must visit during monsoons and while in Goa. Best mode of transportation is through cargo trains; trekking through jungle (or bikes/jeeps) is arduous and time consuming. The Shahrukh Khan Deepika movie Chennai Express was shot here.
The Dudhsagar Falls, located in the Indian state of Goa is one of the most magnificent sights in India. Nested in the dense forests of the Braganza Ghats at the border of northern Karnataka and Goa, the Dudhsagar Falls are at a height of over 1,000 feet.
In the monsoons, the Western Ghats are drenched with heavy rainfall, making the falls an amazing sight to behold.
The waterfalls are accessible only by the Londa-Madgaon train route which connects Goa to Karnataka, In this short video, I present shots of the Dudhsagar Falls from two angles, on the same day. The first is a close up shot from the Amaravathi Express, where the fury of the waterfalls is on display as the train itself is drenched by the falls. I return on the same day by the Goa Express and present the train’s winding journey up to the falls.
Dudhsagar Falls is a tiered waterfall located on the Mandovi River in the Indian state of Goa on Goa’s border with Karnataka state.
The Poorna Express to Pune goes past the Dudhsagar waterfalls in the Braganza Ghats on the Karnataka-Goa border.
The Dudhsagar waterfall is a multi tiered waterfall and is the fourth tallest in India. The Mandovi river plummets down the gorge into the valley below, forming the falls. The Vasco-Londa railway line runs along the Braganza Ghats and the line passes by the falls over an old stone bridge that was originally constructed by the Portuguese and handled steam powered trains.
This place drew a large number of tourists by virtue of its easy access by rail and a pristine charm until recently when some two legged pieces of filth resorted to unlawful behavior by pelting stones at trains and the like, leading to a complete ban on the entry of tourists to this place via the railway line.
There is a station at Dudhsagar and is named after the falls but is not open for public. All trains descending the Braganza Ghats do halt at this station for brake testing. As mentioned already, until a couple of months back, tourists were allowed to access this waterfall by rail and on weekends, the number of tourists would be in the thousands. However, a group of dimwits pelted stones on a train when the doors of the AC coaches weren’t opened for them and this lead to a complete ban on the entry of visitors to the falls.
Local trekking groups do organize treks to the waterfalls during the non-monsoon season via a jungle trail though.
The Poorna Express runs from Ernakulam to Pune and is a weekly service linking the cities of Cochin, Mangalore and Madgaon with Londa, Belgaum, Miraj and Pune. Another bi-weekly train runs in between the same two cities but goes via Mangalore, Madgaon and Panvel.
