About Kulem

Another most popular approach is through railway tracks. Most trekkers select the famous route from Castle Rock station, and so did we. Another starting point is from Kulem station. The distance from Castle Rock station to Dudhsagar waterfalls is approximate 14kms (13km till the Dudhsagar station and 1 km from station till the falls) and the distance from Kulem station is 11km. We boarded the Goa Express from Pune. The train starts at 4.30pm. But on the day we left, it was delayed by an hour so we left from Pune station at around 5.30pm. Reached Castle Rock station at 3.30am and started our journey walking on the railway tracks and enjoying the scenic beauty on the way.My Experience This is the longest distance I have walked so far- 14km, but after witnessing the thunderous and the majestic waterfalls, trust me it was worth it. For most of us its was an achievement in itself :) The greenery along the tracks makes it less tiring and more fun. There are around 10 tunnels to cross and the most thrilling experience is when you are inside the tunnel and a train passes you by. Its scary by also a thrill. One does not get to experience this often. In fact we use to wait for the train whenever we found ourselves inside the tunnel. On our way we also met some uncommon species such as the Giant Atlas moth. The apical extension of its fore-wing resembles a snake's head. After 9 hours of walking trail we reached the waterfall at 1pm. Due to recent mishap nobody was allowed to go under the waterfall. After spending for like an hour at the waterfall we headed back to the Dudhsagar railway station. Boarded a train to Kulem station and from there went to Dudhsagar Spa resort. Resort booking was done before hand.Return Journey After a night stay at Dudhsagar Spa Resort, post breakfast we left for Londa station. We hired a bus from near the resort till the Londa Station. From Londa station we boarded the train to Pune. Reached Pune at 4.30am the next day.Note: Train bookings were done almost 2 months before.Dos and Don't s for the trek Be mindful of the sound of the train. When inside the tunnel and a train passes by sit down and face towards the walls of the tunnel During the monsoons you may find leeches on the track. Carry some tobacco with you to keep the leeches at bay. Also carry some salt with you to get rid of the leeches. Salt causes the leech to dehydrate and fall off. Do carry a good pair of shoes or floaters. Carry sufficient food and water/energy drink. You will not find any eatables on the way. Also make sure your backpack is light to sustain while walking for 6-8 hours on tracks. Other things to carry- torch, rain jackets, dry clothes in plastic bags, medicines, cash, toiletries, tent and sleeping bag if you plan to camp near the falls .
