Situated on the border of Goa and Karnataka, the Dudhsagar Waterfalls takes a steep plunge 2000 feet down in the wooded mountains of the Western Ghats. Believed to be amongst the highest falls in the country. The view from the top of the falls is breathtaking.
The fall is generally calm during summers. But during monsoon due to incessant downpour, the falls become active and attract a huge chunk of tourists. Swimming is a good
option at the falls when the water is calm in desired area. The adventurers could try and climb up to the head of the falls through bushes, boulders and water. It's a tough climb which takes at least a couple of hours. The fall's surrounding area serves as a superior outing zone.
