There is something special about a waterfall. The feeling one gets after visiting a waterfall is very therapeutic mentally and physically. The combination of rivers crashing over cliffs falling into pools of water; the ground covered in a wet sheen making trails, viewpoints rainforest wet – it is all spectacular.
Dudhsagar is one of such kind. Dudhsagar waterfalls roar from a height of 600m and it is located on Karnataka – Goa border. After pouring across the Deccan plateau, the headwaters of the Mandovi River form a foaming torrent that splits into three streams to cascade down a near-vertical cliff face into a deep green pool.
