Many trekkers get down at the station near this falls and trek their way down to the base of the waterfall. Others drive down normally through the mining fields to reach this place. The water falls with really high force due to the distance and now its not allowed for people to go inside the pond due to safety reasons but once upon a time it was allowed and its really fun. The area around the falls is also very scenic and its amazing to just sit and stare at this might falls.How To Reach - By Train you need to either get down at Madgaon station and go via a hired taxi or you can get down at Kulem and there is 12 KMs trek down to the waterfalls.

After the 11th tunnel, one gets through Dudhsagar falls ! Summer - no water ! The train stops for a minute at the Dudhsagar railway station and few got off to have some time there.
As we reached dudhsagar waterfalls entry point (i.e you have to take the local vehicle to reach the falls ) . It is a one hour drive which takes us through the puddles, streams, bumpy roads.After you reach there you have to walk down 10 minutes which is very beautiful crossing rocks and bridges. The fresh air, the clean water, the railway bridge ,the high falls , the railway bridge and yeah what not to rejuvenate the moment.
You can put down your shoes, place your belongings at the rock and can have pool like experience. If you are planning to do so, bring an extra pair of clothes.
