Also known as Kesarval Springs, Kesarval Falls is renowned for its medicinal properties. Attracting a large number of visitors from around the world, it is situated near the village of Cortalim, about 22 km from the city of Panaji. The best time to visit Kesarval Falls is during monsoon when you can see the cascading water flow into the lake below. The word 'kesarval' comes from the Indian word for eagles. It was so named as the cliff near the waterfall was home to hundreds of eagles. Before the 1950s, the falls could only be reached through a stony zigzag trail but after the Government of Goa declared it a tourist stopover, steps were constructed for easy accessibility.
