Presently known as the Dandeli Anshi Tiger Reserve, this is a small village in the Uttar Kannada District of Karnataka. This village is exactly on the Western Ghats and shares boundaries with Goa which was till 1961, a Portuguese Colony. This is an old village which is a good example of the British- Indian colonies and the Portuguese- Goan Colonies. The Dudhsagar Falls is a major attraction here and the lush green forests of deciduous trees. This was once also a manganese mining destination but mining is now banned here. The very old railway station here is also a very famous one out here with an old castle style tunnel. The Railway station is known as the Castle Rock Railway Station.

Castle Rock to Doodhsagar is the more popular stretch to trek as compared to Doodhsagar to Kulem stretch. This being a long weekend, and seeing massive crowds at the Castle Rock Station in Karnataka, we decided to continue by train upto the Doodhsagar station and trekked from there to Kulem station in Goa.
