"Goa"

As soon as anyone says Goa the first thing that comes in mind is "DIL CHAHTA HAI",Road trip, Friends and Masti. So finally me and my friends planed to do our own dil chahta hai movie. Goa is a state on the western coast of India and is famous for its natural beauty, beaches and night life.

So on 27 of Dec we started our journey from Mumbai to Goa 5 am in the morning, as it was a road trip I decided to cover as many places I can in between. Our First stop was Kamshet which is just after Lonavala.

Day 1

Paragliding at kamshet

The distance between Mumbai and kamshet is approx 106 km and takes around 2-3 hours drive. We reached kamshet by 8:30 am, Kamshet is best famous for paragliding, so we decided to Fly on the way, the experience was so amazing and adventurous one must do this once in their lifetime. For more details read my "FLYING WITH THE BIRDS" post. After that we left around 2 pm and had our lunch near Pune, was almost 4 pm and we started our journey further towards malvan. It was almost 11 pm so we took a halt in between and stayed the night in a hotel.

Day 2

After breakfast on 28 DEC we left from hotel to malvan/tarkarli beach, as it was in the way so we decided to visit this place also. If you guys are planning to do water sports in Goa, you must do here because its very cheep here it costed me 1000 rs for all water sports including and when i did it in Goa previous year it costed me 2200 rs so almost 1000 rs less.

By 3 am we were there and then went to our hostel, as we had to leave early we slept as we reached hostel. Next day 1st Jan 2019 we left from our hostel by 9 in the morning ,because by 2nd we had to go to our respective work.

I went Goa in almost all seasons, during rains Goa looks beautiful with greens all around that time we visited Dudhsagar waterfalls and was super fun, Next during summers that time you can visit goa in peace, because very less numbers of tourists and prices are also less during off seasons, like rainy and during jan to march.

For new year Goa is too expensive and very much crowded during my first two visit i got bike for 250 per day and during new years they were like 1000 rs per day. So it totally depends at what time you want to go. And also south Goa is very beautiful, calm and peaceful, perfect for family outing. South Goa is yet to be explored by me ,the only place i did was dudhsagar falls. Attaching below some old images of my previous visit to goa.
