The exquisite Dudhsagar (or sea of milk) Waterfall is perched among the high peaks of the Western Ghats on Goa's border with Karnataka state. With a total height of 310 metres (1017 feet) and an average width of 30 metres (100 feet) Dudhsagar is listed as India's fifth tallest waterfall. Amongst all the waterfalls around Bangalore, this waterfall is a sight to behold, especially in the monsoons when it is in full glory; the cascading water looks foamy white, giving it the apprance of milk, which is why the falls is called ‘Dudhsagar’.
This energetic and stunning four-tiered waterfall is located within the Bhagwan Mahavir Wild Life Sanctuary, 60 km from Panaji city in Goa. Trekking to Dudhsagar is a favoured tourist activity; Dudhsagar is a nature lover’s delight! the area surrounding the fall is covered with deciduous forest it is house to many species of birds, insects, plants and animal. A small rest house in the forest is the only place to stay here. Roads leading to the waterfall are closed in the rainy season from June to September as fast flowing streams cross the roads and make them unsafe to drive.
Waterfalls present a grand spectacle to their viewers as their abundant water drops down sheer cliffs of varying heights. They are just one of the many ways that Mother Nature draws our attention to her unmatched splendor. And Bangalore is fortunate enough to have several of them in its vicinity, giving you a wonderful opportunity to visit them during the next post-monsoon season.
