Dudhsagar Falls is one of the gorgeous flowy waterfalls where you can hear the roar of the water, gushing through the slope of the mountains. This fall is one of the tallest waterfall in India which is 310 Mts long. As the water gushes from the high altitude, one can witness a beautiful view which would always be registered.
This huge gush, gives the viewers the illusion of a subtle milky white colour water falling from the great height. That is why the falls is named as Dudhsagar Falls. Mandori the main river of Goa originates from the Deccan Plateau winds, finds its way through the narrow streams and turns of the western ghats.
As the river streams its way along the border of karnataka and goa, it then transforms and moulds itself to Dudhsagar waterfalls.
The waterfalls gives us a beautiful sight, as there are green trees surrounded all over with a bridge across. The shadow and the reflections of the trees make water body look green. The falls is located in the womb of Bhagwan Mahavir Woldlife sanctuary. This dense forest, with many species of wild animals, birds, plants and trees makes the waterfalls even more pleasant.
In the past few years, these falls became even more popular and came into existence as many people are preferring as a weekend getaway from different cities like Hyderabad, Banglore, Mumbai, pune etc.
The season starting from June is the best period as the falls look more gorgeous in the monsoon. The water levels will rise above the usual level, thus gives a splendid effect as the water flows with a huge gush.
These falls are located amidst the dense forest, with falls surrounding trees and mountains. These falls are located inside the Bhagwan Mahavir National Park. The trip to Goa is incomplete without visiting these falls.
One can also witness the wildlife experience with the spotted snakes crawling. Once you the reach the waterfalls, you can find a little difficult trek, but the beautiful nature, cascading falls and showers showering on your body, makes all it’s worth.
There is a Temple there called as Tambdi surla temple, a temple of Lord Shiva. This is the most beautiful place to visit as it is eye-catching. This temple is an ancient temple, which is a treat to the eyes because of its unique architecture. This is a divine place, which enriches the Heritage and Culture of India, not only known for religious importance but also for its construction and style.
Every corner of the temple tells as a historical story. As the temple faces to the east, the rays of the sun falls first on this and makes the temple even more warm and bright.
Ad you can hear the sound of the waterfalls, chirping of the birds, animal sounds, green bushes and the bells ringing, you can clearly realise the reason why our ancestors build these kind of temple inside the womb of mother forest.
