Hello Nature Lovers!
The Sea of Milk as they call it, Dudhsagar, is a sight to behold. The waterfall located in the middle of majestic Western Ghats is surrounded by lush greenery. Dudhsagar is the fourth largest waterfall in India at a height of more than 1000 feet.
The Jeep ride starts at Mollem village, passes by thick forest, adjacent to the railway track sometimes. The 18 km up and down jeep ride of Dudhsagar falls usually takes 2 to 3 hours to finish in a leisurely way.
There is a natural pool at the bottom of the falls where we will take a refreshing dip with life jackets (when the flow is not high). Dudhsagar is so huge that a moving Train passing on a railway bridge across the backdrop of waterfalls appears like a toy!
Dudhsagar is a place where one can truly experience nature in all its glory.
Well, that’s not it.
After the Jeep ride, we will go on an amazing trek to offbeat Tambdi Surla waterfalls and take a dip yet again. This offbeat trek of 6 km in the dense forest along a stream is a delightful experience.
A relaxing Day 2 overlooking the endless Sea is what you exactly need to complement the demanding Jeep/trek of Day 1 in the mountains. We will explore Aguada Fort, and chill out on the Beaches for some time before moving back towards Bangalore.
Join us on this unique weekend trip to Dudhsagar, Tambdi Surla, and Goan Beaches.
