The amazing Dudh Sagar water falls is now flowing to its full glory after some good rains in the past week. (23, June 2015)
Dudh Sagar Falls has been an attraction for everyone who travels by train to Goa, which lies amidst the Briganza Ghat (as locally known) in the belt of Western Ghats in the state of Goa bordering Karnataka. Dudh Sagar Falls is located adjacent to the Railway Track on Goa-Londa route. Dudh Sagar (Sea of Milk) as it is known is believed to have derived its name from an incident where a princess who covered herself by throwing milk in order to hide herself.
Dudh Sagar fall boosts of an awesome height of 310 Meters, is the 5th highest waterfall in India and Ranks 227th in the world. The waterfall forms couple of pools which adds to the scenic beauty amidst the Green Jungles of Western Ghats. But Swimming is highly risky in these ponds.
The members of the Belgaum Photographers circle visited this falls yesterday to get you these amazing pics. They biked until Castlerock and from there trekked all the way to the falls which is about 15 kms.
