When in Goa recently, we did two trips with John’s boats. One was over night on the river boat, the other to the falls at Dudhsagar. both were excellent.
The boat only accommodates two couples, we met a very nice couple who were from Germany and Switzerland, both spoke good English, so language was no problem. The boat captain “Victor” was very knowledgeable about the river, explaining about all that was to see as you cruised past places. The food and drink on board was good and plentiful. We never managed to drink the bar dry! Will definitely do this trip again.
The drive to the falls takes about two hours, then another forty five minutes in a jeep to reach the falls. The jeep ride in itself is an experience worth the price. You are sold bananas and nuts to feed the monkeys at the falls with. Although there is a sign saying “it is an offence to feed the monkeys” No one takes any notice of this and if you don’t get there reasonably early, the monkeys are over fed. we were lucky and had the monkeys eating from our hands. The falls themselves are spectacular. Sadly so many tourist are there the pool at the base can get quite crowded.
My partner also did the Elephant wash which she really enjoyed. Can not go to Goa without going on An elephant. This was at extra cost to falls visit.
I love discover the world !
Here’s a thrilling off road experience through the jungle, on a 4 wheel drive jeep. Head towards the east splashing through the slush, under tropical trees and finally the gushing waters of the Dudhsagar rivulets. The trip begins by bus hardly giving you a hint of the adventure ahead. We get into a jeep at the base of the falls to negotiate the mountain terrain. As we behold the roaring Dudhsagar waterfall, you can bathe in the holding pools, have a beer, take a short walk through the jungle, feed the monkeys and just relax.
Dudh Sagar Waterfalls is the highest fall in Goa and is singular in all its milky splendor, located at the Karnataka-Goa border. The name generally means “ocean of milk” and is so called due to its gushing white surf. The river emanating from this fall is called Mandovi which flows from East to West into the Arabian Sea and has the capital city of Panjim located on its southern bank.
This natural waterfall is located in the interior village of Sanguem district in extreme south Goa on the Karnataka-Goa border. Situated at a comfortable distance of only 60 kms from Panjim city, this waterfall makes for enjoyable day trip.
On the edge on the high peaks of the Sahyadri Western Ghats, the Dudh Sagar waterfalls offer unrivalled natural beauty and marvelous landscape full of wonderful charms during the monsoon rains from June till October. Best time to visit Dudhsagar waterfalls is after the rains from October till April. Dudhsagar literally means ocean of milk, which from a distance appear like milky streams, gradually fall into a gushing cascade as they come into full view of the tourists. The waterfall at the start appears like streams of milk curving down the mountain which later conclude into glorious cascades after they come in full view of the captivated visitors.
