Goa is known for its New Year Eve parties, beaches and the susegad lifestyle. It is also home to the spectacular Dudhsagar Waterfalls. Though people prefer to visit Goa during the winter months, trust us when we say, the best time to visit this beach town is during the monsoons. This is when Goa is more beautiful and spectacular than the rest of the year. And one of the many wonderful places in Goa worth visiting during the monsoon is one of the tallest waterfalls in India — Dudhsagar Falls. The falls are perched high on the peaks of the Western Ghats on Sanguem Taluka and are indeed a ravishing spectacle to behold especially during monsoons when they are in full force and glory. It appears as if white streams of milk are falling down ferociously over cut rocks, invariably making big a splash.
Therefore it is named Dudhsagar or the sea of milk in the local Konkani language.
The height of these falls is about 600 metres and is considered to be one of the tallest falls in the country. These falls are actually located on the Maharashtra-Karnataka border and are formed across the River Mandovi.
One of the highest waterfalls in India, located in the Sanguem taluka on the border of Goa and Karnataka. The sight of one of India’s tallest waterfall, the clitter clatter noise of the water hitting the rocks, the splash of water, the cold breeze, there is beauty in its force and serenity in its composure. Everything together makes up for a rejuvenating day and a refreshing sight.
A trip to the Dudhsagar Waterfalls is an experience like no other. Located at Goa-Karnataka border, it is the 4th tallest waterfall in India. Literally meaning “Sea of milk”, Dudhsagar shot to fame after being pictured in the movie, Chennai Express. It is a four step fall, over steep hills making it difficult to make tourist viewing platforms. One has to trek to be able to behold the beauty of this one.
