Can anyone suggest how to go to dudhsagar falls from Panjim / Vasco. Sometime ago there was info re train from vasco but can;t find it now possibly to castle rock.
Can you drive down to the falls in non 4x4 car or is it impossible or forbidden due to the rough terrain.

Take train from your vasco to Mollem railway station. From there you reach the main entrance of Dudhsagar and you can hire a car or tata sumo which will take you through the jungle and land you near the waterfall and then back and it take rs 30-50 per head.

If you want you can hire a cab but it willl be around rs 2000/-

Smile trip to dudhsagar falls

It is 10 kilometers from Kulem Railway Station (Indian Railway station code QLM). This waterfalls lies on the Londa-Madgaon railway route. To view this waterfalls from close distance, travel by Delhi-Goa express (12780), Pune-Ernakulam Express(11098) or Miraj-Castle Rock passenger train which starts from Miraj rail junction. There is a small rail station about 50 feet near the waterfalls and some trains halt here for 2 mintutes.

Drive to collem villag from panaji, its 80 km s from panaji. En route you will cross Moullem village. Its better you ask the road for Dudh sagar falls at panjim and poeple will tell you for sure.

After you go near the falls park your vehicle there and take the shared jeep which takes about an hour to reach the falls. The ride through the jungle is exciting. The same jeep will get you back to the starting point. Drive back to panjim.

Thats nice Madhava, but i think the person who requested this details, came back from the trip and he even told the actual cost of traveling.

Perfectly correct Rohan, and well said!

But something interesting here regarding the jeep fare is that the personal experience of an Indian is rs30-50, whilst a foreigner reports rs200.

It comes back to Goa's definition of the perfect foreign tourist....Lands at Dabolim.......hands over the entire contents of his wallet.......gets back on the same aircraft and goes home.

Incidentally, if anyone thinks this is an anti-Goan sentiment, I suggest you read this;
(for information, Mr Norohna is a well respected independant Goan journalist, living in Goa)

http://oheraldo.in/newpage.php?month...=2011&catid=14

It is well written, and refers mainly as to how Goans are ripped off on a daily basis......... imagine the extent to which foreigners get shafted?

Just few points to add.
I am a goan living in u.k. for last 41 years [life time].But I felt it a bit steep considering the cost quoted as Rs. 30-50
Plus points it was almost 2 1/2 to 3 hour trip.Thanks.

Neil, I have a Goan friend, born in Africa where his parents worked, but living in Siolim for the last 20 years. He is ripped off like a foreigner where-ever he goes in Goa........I tell him its because he speaks perfect, rather than pidgin English, but mainly because he says please and thankyou!
