  • This location is shown only to members

Back2nature GHAC gives you all the ingredients of a perfect getaway, Mountain trekking, waterfalls, trail hiking, monsoon rains, camping. but above all satisfying your craving to connect with nature.....

Everyone would be carrying/sharing tents weight. Please do not rsvp if you are not ok with it. 

We will be camping outside in nature near the falls.

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).

Through the tunnels...

Another view of the falls....

The most scenic trek through the tunnels and along the railway tracks, hundreds of scintillating pristine streams can be spotted along the trek.


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 Dudhsagar station next day and board a goods/passenger train back to Londa and then to Hyderabad. We will be back by 7am 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 ... :)

    Thank you all guys.
    This was a terrific group. Nature was more than generous with the rains. Imagine groups last few weeks who walked the tracks in the searing sun.
    We had a couple of Latha mangeshkars, a few Dabboo Ratnanis, a couple of Bill Murrays, and one Macaulay Culkin - I hope you get it.
    Thanks to vivek who took all the responsibility on his big broad shoulders.
    Thank you all.

    July 3, 2014

    • Abhishek M.

      Hyderabad traffic is very unpredictable. make sure you people reach by 8:30 p.m. so that you don't waste valuable minutes paving through the rush at the station, and reaching the right platform.
