What Is the Dudhsagar Waterfall?
The Dudhsagar waterfall is a very famous tourist attraction in Goa. The Dudhsagar trek begins at Arlem, which is close to Sanguem and Pernem, but it’s usually done as a day trip from any of these places. The word dudh means milk in the Konkani language and sagari means waterfall. So together it translates to Milk Falls, because of its milky white appearance when there is ample water flowing down it. This waterfall has an average height of 120 meters and a width of 80 meters. It is also known as Nagdevta or Shiva falls by locals.
Why You Should Visit Dudhsagar

Timings and Things to Do at the Waterfalls
The best time to visit Dudhsagar Falls is between July and December. And if you’re planning a trek, be prepared for it to take roughly 10-15 hours each way. If you’re on a strict schedule, visiting these falls may not be an option. But if you have more than 2 days at your disposal, then there’s no better place than Dudhsagar Falls for rejuvenation. It has breathtaking views of pure nature that will surely change your outlook on life! After taking in all its beauty, spend some time swimming in its cool waters or meditating. A trek up to Dakshineswar Temple also makes for a great day trip from Dudhsagar Falls. This ancient temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and houses several rare sculptures belonging to the 9th century CE Chola Dynasty (see below). The temple was constructed by one of King Parantaka I’s generals after he lost his son in a battle against Pallavas of Kanchipuram.
Getting There, Including Where to Stay
The entrance to Duddha is at Marchelo, which lies roughly 135 kilometers from Panaji. You can reach Marchelo by road or train. However, given its distance from other towns and villages, it’s better to book a package tour that includes travel, lodging and entry tickets. The travel agent will take care of all your arrangements—this includes shuttling you between your accommodation and Marchelo. If you want to stay overnight at Marchelo itself, there are a few options for lodgings in town. These include basic lodges with shared bathrooms as well as homestays that offer rooms with attached bathrooms.
Preparing for your Dudhsagar tour
A Dudhsagar waterfall tour through India is an unforgettable experience for most people. As it’s not a very well-known attraction in India, you’ll have both fewer tourists and more natural environments to enjoy on your trip. So, it’s important to prepare as much as possible for your trip so that you can stay safe throughout your journey. Here are five things you should know before taking a Dudhsagar waterfall tour from India. 1. You will need permission to enter certain areas of India during your Dudhsagar tour – especially if you plan on going into tribal areas like Karbi Anglong or Dima Hasao district, which border Bhutan and Myanmar respectively.
How to Reach Goa From Mumbai/Pune/Mangalore/Hyderabad/Bangalore
Fly to Dabolim Airport, Vasco Da Gama, Goa. Your resort’s representative will be waiting for you outside with a placard. He will take you to your hotel and drop you off in your room. If you are coming by train or bus, there is a railway station in Vasco da Gama (about 3 km away) or in Margao (about 15 km away). From these stations, there are local buses that run frequently to Panaji city. You can also hire a taxi from these stations. If you prefer driving yourself, please remember that cars need special permits to enter India through Goan borders. It is advisable that you arrange one before leaving home so as not to face any hassles on arrival.
