The visit to the Basilica of Bom Jesus had been the best so far out of all the places which I have visited in Goa. The church, temples and Forts all were having some of the most unique
architecture I had ever seen. The following day after the visit to the Basilica I decided to conclude my Goa trip by visiting a natural site first. It was the famous Dudhsagar Falls, a popular natural attraction in Goa.
The falls are located at a distance of some 60 km from Panaji and 10 km from the railway station of Colen. It is situated at the Karnataka – Goa border. The name of the waterfalls is evolved from the Konkani language which translates as Sea of milk. The falls springs from a height of 600 metres and the froth it makes due to the speedy surge looks like milk, hence the name Dudhsagar.
The place is very popular in Goa as a site for trekking and hiking. The falls were looking stunning as the monsoons had hit the state of Goa. The rocks present in the entire area were slippery.
There are many animals, birds and other species which have made their abode near the waterfalls. The place is a must visit for all the photography bugs.
It is a perfect location for the nature photography sessions. A temple is also found near the waterfalls which are highly revered by the local native population of Konkan. The road conditions were a little messy due to the rains but one can avail the tour packages offered by Goa Bus Service on Saturdays and Sundays.
There are many other ways to reach like hiring a private taxi, shared Jeeps or taking a passenger train from Madgaon to Dudhsagar which hardly takes an hour or so to reach the place. It was a
nice natural attraction of the state to visit after visiting so many manmade structures and locations of Goa.
While returning from the Dudhsagar falls, I planned to pay a visit to another highly revered temple of Goa known as the Laxmi Narsimha Temple.
