Ok... now that we screened/feared lot of people out :) here are more important details...
DudhSagar Falls located on the Mandovi River in the state of Goa, on Goa's border with Karnataka. Dudhsagar Falls is listed as India's 5th tallest waterfall,and is 227th in the world at 310 m.
This is a four tiered waterfall with a total height of 310 meters (1017 feet) and an average width of 30 meters (100 feet).
What we try to do ? :
Railway track [in operation] runs close to the falls , which also has few tunnels on the way to the falls, we will get down at Castle Rock station and trek 14km to water falls. Camp near the falls and trek back to Castle Rock next day and board train back to Hyderabad at Londa Junction. we will be back by 6am Monday. Whole place will be so pristine in monsoon and added to that different experience of trekking through tunnels. Camping in nature .. best part is we have to find the place is to where to stay ... :)
Expect few leeches but you will get used to that :)
