Dudhsagar Waterfalls, located at the Goa-Karnataka border in the Western Ghats, is one of the most sought after tourist attractions in India. Despite its obscure location right in the middle of forests and hills, hordes of nature-loving tourists flock to this cascading waterfall to experience its unrivalled majesty. Nearly 310 meter high, Dudhsagar Waterfall is a four-tiered fall with different ways to reach each level. Here is a quick guide on how to get to this natural wonder from Goa.

By Road

The lower half of Dudhsagar Fall is accessible through the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary. You can hire a taxi or take a bus to the entry gate in Kullem from Panaji or Margao. The distance from Panaji to Kullem is about 60kms. Here, you will find forest department-operated 4WDs waiting for the tourists. Reach there as early as possible to avoid long queue for tickets. Visitors also need to pay for life jackets as well as park entry. Also, you will have to cover the last one kilometre on foot.

By Train

Board the passenger train that leaves every morning from Madgaon for Kullem. From Kullem station, hire a taxi to the entry gate or get another train to Dudhsagar. Not every train stops at Dudhsagar, so be sure about the train halts before boarding it. From the railway station, you will have to walk for about one kilometre along the track to reach the falls. The walk itself is an exciting experience; along with enjoying different other attractions, you will pass through a completely dark 200 m train tunnel!


Trekking is perhaps the best way to experience the beauty of Dudhsagar Falls and the surrounding forests. Many local agencies organize trek for adventure-loving tourists. The excursion usually starts from either Dudhsagar Station or Castle Rock. The latter is more popular with travellers who wish to enjoy the natural beauty of the region in a much more elaborate fashion. There are series of tunnels, smaller waterfalls and dense forest en route to the fall. It takes about 6-7 hours to complete the trek. Remember, no food or drinking water is available near the fall. You must carry your own supplies.
