• About

    Literally translated as the ‘Sea of Milk,’ the Dudhsagar falls is a splendid sight to behold with the four-tiered waterfall falling from an impressive height of 600 meters. An ideal place for trekking, the area is home to many species of flora and fauna and is a great place to explore for nature lovers.

    Getting there

    Dudhsagar Falls can be reached by road from Panaji (61 kms) and Margao (26 kms). A rail route can also be taken from Carambolim (50 kms). A four-wheel SUV is the only vehicle that can be used to travel to the falls due to the rocky terrains. Most travellers prefer the option of trekking. Alternatively, one can also travel through the motorable track which stops at a kilometre away from the falls.
