If you want to go on a trip to Dudhsagar, but have no idea about how to make it, then this blog is just for you.
If you could spare some time from your daily chores and wouldn’t mind learning my experience on trip Dudhsagar, then happy reading to you!
The rest of the peeps get lucky with your daily chores!
Waking up on a Friday morning with the TGIF vibe is special! But, isn’t it brownie points for a Friday when you can sign out much earlier for the weekend! Extra brownie points for me because every other penny for the trip is from my first earning.
Post lite lunch, I left the office and headed over to my little den and kick-started my Trip Dudhsagar. With a stuffed backpack, fully charged devices and of course some enough supplies to munch on, here is to my Trip Dudhsagar.
Duration: 2 Nights & 1 Day (PS: Nights were dedicated for travel)
To pack: Waterproof backpack, Good shoes, plastic covers to waterproof your electronics, raincoat (Yes! Am a bit old school), couple of extra Tees, Towels, spare mobile, power bank, earphones, torchlight, limited first aid, notebook and pen (only if you would document the trip) and make sure you have a Jio-sim since it’s the only network which works in the destination.
Mode of transport: Public transport (PS: Expect delays or any uninvited mess)
Night 1(Friday): Bangalore to Margao
Took a bus from Bangalore (starts by 4:45 PM) and reach Margao the next day morning (expected arrival at 5:45 AM Saturday)
Day 1: The Trek to Dhudsagar
There are two trains from Margao to Kulem, the first one at 6:45 AM (expected arrival at 7:45 AM) and the second one at 8:15 AM (expected arrival at 9:15 AM). Expecting the delays I was hoping to catch the second one.
The first half of the day was planned as follows, once I reach Kulem it was planned to have breakfast and start my 5 hours estimated up and downhill trek (2.5 hours up-hill Kulem to Dudhsagar and 2.5 hours down-hill Dudhsagar to Kulem). Post my trek, I have planned to visit the Colva beach which is 6 Kilometres away from Margao to enjoy the sunset. Visiting the Colva beach was considered as a buffer plan because I had a bus to catch by 8:45 PM to head back.
Expecting uninvited delays or other circumstances I also had alternate plans to compromise on my down-hill trek by taking a train from Dudhsagar to Kulem (from Dudhsagar by 3 PM, reaches Kulem by 5 PM) or cancel my Colva beach.
Night 2(Saturday): Margao to Bangalore
Started from Margao (8:45 PM) and reach Bangalore the next day morning (expected arrival 9:20 AM Sunday)
Here is to my adventurous trip to Dudhsagar…
