GOA: With more and more people stepping out post Unlock, many travellers have started visiting the Dudhsagar waterfalls in Goa by walking alongside the railway track! The waterfall is very popular among tourists, thanks to Bollywood and travel websites promoting it as one of the best waterfalls in the country, and is usually very crowded, despite the authorities controlling the crowd.
This year however, with travel restrictions and fewer tourists, the waterfall which is still shut for visitors through the usual route has caught the attention of adventure-seeking Goan youngsters. Social media is flooded with photos and videos of the magnificent falls, this enticing more people to visit the mighty falls in the Western Ghats.
Visitors claim the stretch is beautiful, though difficult. Rtd Cdr OP Singh, says, “I always wanted to hike to Dudhsagar waterfall since it is not just about the waterfall, but the rich biodiversity that one can see on the 12 km stretch from Kulem to the waterfall. This prompted me to take the rail track trail this monsoon, to Dudhsagar. The track trail did not disappoint me. I could see some beautiful trees, plants, butterflies, snakes, water-streams and tunnels enroute to the falls.
