A Treat For Eyes And Soul

Goa is Mother Nature's most loved child. She has gifted the tiny Indian state with immense natural beauty like beaches, sea, lakes and Waterfalls. The awe-inspiring and strikingly beautiful Waterfalls of Goa are located far from the madding crowds, in the interiors.

Goa houses three major Waterfalls - Arvalam, Dudhsagar and Kesarval Waterfalls. These emerge from great heights and ripple through the rugged terrains. These silvery, dancing falls are a major tourist attraction of the state. These are loved and admired by the tourists flocking Goa.

  1. Arvalam Waterfalls : These falls are situated at about 2 km from Sanquelim and 8 km from Bicholim, in Valpoi taluka, North Goa. These falls give a spectacular views of water gushing down the rocky terrain of the mountain behind it. In the vicinity of the Arvalam Falls is the 5th century Rock Cut caves called the "Aravalem Caves" and Shree Rudreshwar Temple.
  2. Dudhsagar Waterfalls : It lies at a distance of 60 km from Panaji and 10 km from Colem Railway Station, on the Goa-Karnataka border. Dudhsagar means 'sea of milk'. It is called so because froth is formed due to the speedy surge of water from the majestic heights giving illusion of milk. It is one of the most interesting falls of India and the largest and highest fall of Goa. Nearby is the Tamdi Surla Temple built by the Kadambas.
  3. Kesarval Waterfall : Kesarval Spring is situated 22 km away from Panaji on Verna plateau off the Panaji-Margao highway.

The waters here are believed to be magical and having medical properties of curing the ailments of the bather.
