train will stop for a minute or so, you have to get down in the pitch dark, and start walking by the train track towards the waterfall which is 1.5 Kms from the station. Make sure you have a good torch with you.

the station master will stop you from going there but he notes down the adhar card number and details and take a 100 Rs./head from you and lets you go.

4. Enjoy the waterfall in the early morning and get refreshed from the water sprinkles of this huge waterfall because in the monsoon you can't go down in the water. PLEASE DON'T LITTER anywhere because that's a good and clean space now. there will be trains passing by so make sure you go to a safe place when the train arrives.

5. Click pictures and enjoy the view. and leave the place at 8/9 am and start walking towards the collem station which takes around 3 hours of walking and can be tiring. You'll get a station in the middle named sonaulim where your return Goa express stops but you'll have to wait till 5 pm for the train so you better walk and go to collem and have your lunch.
