So the very next day after Paloleum beach, we decided to head for Dudhsagar falls. There's one Jeep safari which takes you to falls and if you want to trek, it's almost 8-10 km which starts from Castle Rock Railway station.
Also, we were asked to leave by 7am since online bookings were not working and there would be a long long Queue for manual Jeep Safari tickets. However, since we were 3 women we started at 8:15 AM 😂😝.
We reached by 10:30 AM and it took us almost 1.5 hrs to get tickets (It costs 500 per person for tickets). And please remember if you are opting for manual tickets that they won't provide you Jeep unless there are 7 members. So in case you are more or less than group of 7, ask people around in Queues. Your group will definitely get adjusted.
So We started by 12, and it was still 10 km to the Waterfalls from ticket point. It actually falls under Bhagwaan Mahavir Sanctuary and hence the roads are not cemented. Everything around is very natural and raw and hence you don't even get any mobile networks (Best thing bdw 😜). It takes almost half an hour to reach falls and you get just 2 hrs to stay there.
After 2 hrs, you get charged Rs. 200 as fine for every 15 mnts extra, so plan your time accordingly.
We started our journey to see the massive white colored waterfalls. It was kind of adventurous because we did river crossing sort of by holding onto the ropes. Since the falls had opened just that day, people actually were building bridges so we couldn't go through them.
The green trees around through which sun-light passed intermittently, the sounds of water gushing through our feet, the feel of that cold white water which tickles your feet but hits your brain, all that was beyond imagination, you can just experience it, can't explain it.
We bathed in that clean white water, got a close view of Waterfalls and then headed back for our Jeep. Also, the waters were so clear, we all felt that our skin tone had become a shade lighter without applying any cosmetic product 😂😂.
After staying in water, we were damn hungry, so we ate lip smacking bhel and sugarcane juice just outside that ticket booking counter. Also, if you prefer Veg/Jain food, you will easily get that in South Goa as compared to North Goa.
After that, we headed for Tambdi Surla temple. It's 17-19 km from Dudhsagar falls and I would definitely suggest that place. It's 800 years old and bit unexplored, serene and quite place. The road which leads to the temple is simply peace-giving, covered with lush green trees on both the sides and voices of birds chirping all around. Also, the temple gets closed around 5PM so plan your journey accordingly. It takes almost one hour to reach temple from the falls.
After worshipping the God we headed back to our Hotel and slept like babies. It was super fun and crazy day. The next day we decided to take Scooters on rent and head to Old Goa and Deewar Island.
