Dudhsagar Waterfalls

The majestic cascade of white water, gushing over the steep, nearly vertical face of the mountain from a spectacular height of 1017 ft, is both breathtaking and awe-inspiring. Translating literally to ‘sea of milk’ the waterfall is located in the Sanguem and falls into the jurisdiction of the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary. One can go by road or rail to Kulem railway station and then trek to the waterfall or hire a jeep to get closer in; however, there will still be a walk to reach the base of the falls.To reach the Dudhsagar Waterfalls, one must either go on foot or by rail. There is also a rather bumpy track that is suitable only for four-wheel-drive vehicles, but this track still requires visitors to trek about 1 km to reach the base of the falls. There are jeeps available for hire which cost about Rs. 1200* and can carry 6 people at a time, the driver then waits at the drop-off point for an hour and a half before bringing the visitors back.Dip in the safe areas and enjoy a refreshing day by the foot of the waterfall.

Savari Waterfalls

The Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary located in Sanguem, South Goa is home to some of Goa’s more attractive water bodies. The Savari waterfall on the border of the Netravali Wildlife Sanctuary in the Kali River basin gurgles with life in the monsoons. Avoid getting lost by going on a guided trek or ask a local as the forest paths can get confusing.

Tambdi Surla

One of the oldest historic sites in Goa, Tambdi Surla is a beautiful place to visit. There is lots to see and do in the area. What people often miss out on is the gushing waterfall in the area. While you admire the ancient stone architecture of the temple, you can cool off in the soothing waters a few kilometres away. The waterfall in Tamdi Surla is about 90 minutes away from the temple. It is located deep inside the Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary, so it’s advisable to take a guide along.

Talade Waterfalls

Nestled in the Western Ghats, this unique, seasonal waterfall can be seen and experienced after a short trek through a number of small streams.

Vazra Sakla Falls

Vazra Sakla Falls at Chorla Ghat is one of the most attractive landmarks in the region. It lies on the fringes of the Goa-Maharashtra-Karnataka borders. Cascading from a height of 143 m and fed by the Haltar nullah, the waters of these twin falls join the Valvanti River in Virdi village in Maharashtra. The rock faces and cliffs that surround Vazra Falls are important breeding grounds for the long billed vulture, an endangered species in Asia.

Ladki Falls

Another majestic cascading beauty is the Ladki falls in Surla. It is a must in your itinerary. Falling from a height of 800 m above sea level, Surla is one of the state’s highest villages. Nestled deep inside the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, it is cocooned in mixed moist deciduous and semi-evergreen forests. Getting to these falls takes you on a trek up the mountain pass of Chorla Ghat and crossing into Karnataka before a forked path brings you back to Goa and to this tiny hamlet hidden in the hills.

Kuskem Falls

The Kuskem falls is one of the lesser-known attractions. It is situated in the southern taluka of Canacona. The idyllic Kuskem village is situated about 20 km from Cortigao Wildlife Sanctuary.

Aravalem Falls

As the monsoons cover the landscape in green, nature springs into action to the sound of the gushing waterfalls. It is an ideal time to visit the lesser-known Arvalem waterfalls in Sanquelim. Located at a 10-minute drive from the Aravalem caves, the 50-m drop offers a breathtaking sight. The waters gush down into a sizeable lake whose banks offer the perfect picnic spot.


The Chorla Ghat is home to many waterfalls, among them Sada, the route offering trekkers a tough and challenging terrain. There are two ways to get there, either through Chorla or through Mangeli, a village in Maharashtra.

Bhupar Cascade

This little cascade is located within the Cortigao Wildlife Sanctuary. There are plenty of hidden gems within the green abode and this cascade is located close to the village. This can be seen only during the monsoons
