Ultimate Guide For Jeep Safari Trekking To The Dudhsagar Falls
There are many ways to witness the grandness of this marvelous waterfall.Two most popular ways are:
1)Trekking over the railway tracks. It starts from Kulem following the railway tracks which is approximately 11 kilometers long(single way).I wont recommend this unless and until you have a lot of experience in trekking.
2)Jeep safari to the Dudhsagar waterfalls from Kulem.
How to Reach Kulem:
The best and easy way to reach kulem is to fly to Panjim, Capital city of Goa and its 2-3 hours drive from there. You can even add this as a one day activity in your Goa holiday plan.
I opted to have the Jeep Safari Experience.
The Jeep safari for Dudhsagar waterfalls starts from Kulem organised by the Goa Forest Department.If you have driven down to Kulem, there is a parking option available in the near by area.
Find below the details of expenses while visiting:
Cost of the jeep safari – INR 3500 per jeep, seats 7
Rent for the life jacket (compulsory) – INR 50
Wildlife Sanctuary entry fee – INR 50
The bumpy track started as soon as I entered the wildlife region. There is welcome board from Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary. Interestingly, sanctuary is a plastic free area. I feel happy, whenever I see such initiations to preserve our nature. Don't throw any plastic in that area. Not specifically there but anywhere. Don't lose the nature while finding yourself in it!!
Back to the story, I was in a dense forest and scared like anything as our jeep was going through river and muddy potholes. But the drivers over there are well trained to drive in such circumstances.I was thrilled as it was no lesser than a roller coaster ride. It takes around an hour to reach base area of the waterfall.
From there you can see the four tiers of the waterfall. You have two options to experience it differently.
