Day 1

Doodhsagar is about 70 Km from Panjim.

If you hire a taxi , then it will charge app. 3500 from one day i.e., to go and back to Panjim.

For doodhsagar , we have to book an advance booking by paying RS. 25/person as an advance booking charges via online through www.ticketpapa.com

If one don't do the online advance booking then they he/she have to stand up in long queue for the same booking at Doodhsagar.

Doodhsagar is located in a village named -Colem, where trains are also there from Madgaon.

We hired a CAR to reach to village Colem and decided to stay there one night.

There is only one good resort named Jungle Book resort , and we booked the same through OYO.

A very good resort and once you are there , you are completely in a nature's hand.

Property is very good and the owner is having 5 elephants , so:
1) you can enjoy an elephant ride there and a shower through elephant trunk.
2) you can enjoy the aura of resort which is full of green trees .
3) cottages are completely made to give a natural look
4) a small open gym is also there.
5) a lake behind the resort.
6) no TV and no mobile network was there except that of jio.
7) self service is there , as no telephones are there in rooms.
8) Hot water could be taken from a large pot (a MATKA type) , in which the water is boiled on CHULHA.

We decided to stay there to experience a silent and relaxed village life there , apart from crowded places at Goa beaches, in evening.

Day 2

On second day, we reached at booking counter of doodhsagar.

As we had already done online advance booking in the slot of 9:15 am , so a person was there who called us for formality at about 9 am and made a pair of total 7 people , as total 7 people are occupied in a single jeep (a bolero).

For that one have to pay Rs. 500/person and if having a child of age above 4 years ,then ticket of Child would also be charged.

Life jackets would also be taken (as it's compulsory to take) @Rs. 40/ person and some charges are to be given at the entry gate of doodhsagar (though it's a wild life sanctuary).

Overall it's a 4-5 hr trip and we enjoyed a lot there , once we reached near the Waterfall.

At about 3 Pm we returned from doodhsagar and prepared to left for Panjim.

Though doodhsagar could also be completed in a single day , if we left Panjim early morning , as it's hardly 70 KM from Panjim and a straight highway road.

Doodhsagar trips are done in 3 slots and one can book an early slot also at about 8am or at 9:25 am also or later than this also.

Earlier total 360 jeeps were allowed , but now only 170 jeeps (bolero) are allowed for safari/doodhsagar.

If , somebody wants to enjoy a village life and want to spend a night in an environment full of relax, silence, serenity etc , then one can opt to stay at JUNGLE BOOK resort at Colem , just near to the booking counter of doodhsagar.

How to reach :

Trains are also there from Madgaon to Colem .

One can hire taxi also , rate would be app. RS.3500 , for one day.

One can take a CAR also on rent (available at Panjim only , near casino's), @Rs.1000-1500 (if we want to self drive) for one day i.e., till 9AM next morning and please remember that a petrol of about Rs.700-800 is sufficient to go and back to panjim from doodhsagar.
