We were way much excited after watching the Ghats of maharashtra . Time just flew by and we arrived at Pune Junction at 1 Pm. We had our lunch at HOTEL MADHURA (PURE VEG) just in front Railway Station gate . Food was very nice and cheap , we had punjabi food. We had 4 hour layover in pune , our next train for CASTLE ROCK was at 4 : 35 pm. There is a one more thing if you are travelling by train every junction has a facility of CLOAK ROOM where you can put your luggage when you have layovers at stations. cloak rooms comes very handy to us in this trip.

PUNE to CASTLE ROCK sleeper Class Rs 315

Next morning we arrived CASTLE ROCK at 3:00 AM. We had a company of few other people who were also there for trekking. we freshened up ourselves at railway station and started trekking around 6 AM . we were a group of 30 people . Castle Rock to dudhsagar waterfall is 15 km trekking . You can get idea about the distance by signboard which are used for railway line but we found out how to read them and we can decide how far and how fast we have to go.

There are 14 tunnels if you are going from castle rock. Trust me , you will be amazed by the scenic views. We took approx 6 hrs to reach DUDHSAGAR WATER FALL . Its good if you keep enough water and some food with you. we have reached there.. , yes we were at DUDHSAGAR WATERFALL after two days of travel. we were in front of that roaring ,gigantic waterfall . You have to feel that moment when it is on its peak during monsoon (full paisa wasool ).

Dudhsagar Falls (literally Sea of Milk ) is a four-tiered waterfall located on the Mandovi River in the border of the Indian state of Goa and Karnataka. It is located on the Madgaon-Belgavi rail route . Dudhsagar Falls is amongst India's tallest waterfalls with a height of 310 m (1017 feet) and an average width of 30 metres (100 feet).

It was 2:00 pm , dudhsagar railway station is not passenger station so passenger trains dont stops here . Goods Trains stops at this station for technical halt. one hour later a goods train arrived and locopilot helped us . We can say in a different way that we hitchhiked in a Train loco...what a thrilling moment. we were at KULEM railway station.
