It was a refreshing view from the Fort during North Goa tour and time spent on the cruise during south Goa tour. Even dolphins were touring with us.

The Dudhsagar Trek in Goa is brilliant. After being to Goa just to roam around and loiter in the beach for so many times, we wanted to have a really lovely trip that is adventurous too. That’s when we decided to do the Dudhsagar trek and it was just too brilliant. We drove till the meeting point from Bangalore, and we joined with the other folks there and we had a really brilliant time trekking. The beauty of western ghats can be totally experienced if you drive through for this trek. Also, this trek is just too brilliant and tedious too.
