    Where ?

    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 :)

    Total expenses were Rs 15548 (includes train + organizer expenses),
    GHAC Fee Rs 2332
    Org Fee Rs 200
    Service Tax Rs 32

    So we would get Rs 150/- back for each person.
    I could transfer to you all or all lets meet some time in next week and I can distribute it there and have a small party with it ;-)
    It is open to you all, please discuss within you guys here and let me know by 3-Oct. I would be in a trip this weekend and also need to get some funds from the club.
    So I can only give it next week.

  • B Harsha V.

    It wasn't an easy trek of 14km's solely on Railway tracks paving through 11 pitch black Tunnels, carrying at least 15-20 kg's of weights.

    But the moment we got the glance of the Monstrous and Thundering 'Dudhsagar falls'... We should admit that we have lost all the pain we have endured till then !!

    A night in Tents... set out in the Jungle, at the edge of a cliff, deepening into an unending valley, with nothing at all (not even a single light) except for Fog and Rain, and barely a feet away from Railway tracks...!! OMG... was that an experience to forget??

    The 'Mafia' and other games we played, the gossips we shared, the pictures we have posed, the hotels we explored for food in Karnataka, the tension i have faced (until this moment) when my mobile got drenched in rain, the fun we had, the news that ManC beat ManU by 4-1 ... Combinedly make this trip... One of my most memorable trips !! Thanks to GHAC for organising it and thanks for the People who have made it worth !!
