Dudhsagar Falls

Scenic Spot

 

Overview

Dudhsagarwaterfall is located in the Sanguem taluka, Karnataka border, Goa.it is the 4th tallest waterfall in India. the waterfall appears like streams of milk rushing down the mountainside. The headwaters of the Mandovi River form a foaming torrent that splits into three streams to cascade down a near-vertical cliff face into a deep green pool.  one of the most popular and famous tourist spots in the state of Goa.
 
The Konkani name for the falls, which literally translated means "sea of milk", derives from clouds of milky foam which rises up at the bottom of the falls. Dudhsagar is set amidst breathtaking scenery overlooking a steep, crescent-shaped head of a valley carpeted with pristine tropical forest, that is only accessible on foot or by train.
 
The legend tells the story of this powerful and wealthy king who ruled a kingdom in the Western Ghats. The King had a beautiful daughter, who used to enjoy taking a bath during the hot summers, in the picturesque lake near the forest on the edge of the King's palace grounds. It was her habit to finish her bath and have a jugful of sugared milk in a jug made of pure gold.
 
One day when she was finishing her usual jug of milk she found herself being watched by a handsome prince standing amongst the trees. Embarassed by her inadequate bathing attire, the resourceful Princess poured the sugared milk in front of her to form an improvised curtain to hide her body, while one of the maids rushed to cover her with a dress.
 
Thus was the legend born. The sugared milk (dudh) poured down the mountainside and continued to flow in torrents as a tribute to the everlasting virtue and modesty of the Princess of the Ghats. The Dudh Sagar (Sea of Milk) continues to flow to this day.
 
There is no direct way to reach Dudhsagar, you gotta take a train to Londa junction. From there, you need to take a local bus/taxi/train to either Kulem OR Castle Rock. This takes roughly 3 hours. The trek starts from here, a trek on track for over 12 kms to reach the waterfalls 
 
when the fall has abundant water, and it's relatively easier to trek once the rains are over. Trek from Castle Rock station is about 14 kms and about 12 kms from Kulem station. Both these routes require you to walk through winding railway tracks, walking into small waterfalls and cross dark tunnels. This is a very picturesque trek, the hill on all sides looks freshly covered in green. It takes around 4-5 hours to walk up.
 
The waterfall is visible towards the last 1 km. It is also the view that affords you the full view of the enormous waterfall, in it's full glory. If you time it well, you can also see a train passing on the railway bridge underneath the waterfall. It is impossible to not marvel at the engineering skill needed to build a railway bridge in this difficult terrain. It is exhilarating to witness both technology and nature intertwine in such harmony. The surrounds were washed clean in the rain; taking in the freshness & beauty of  everything around in the cool air refreshed my senses fully.
 
The waterfall in itself is quite magnificent up close. The grandeur of the gushing waterfall is awe inspiring. The trains that pass by slow down to let passengers enjoy the view. I stood outside with my back to the waterfall, looking onto the passing melee of excited faces flashing past one after another. Each face would have a curious expectant look which would turn into amazement upon catching a glimpse of the milky stream.
 
The entrance to the waterfall is from Collem through the forest department gate. Ticket sales are stopped at 3:00 p.m.
