Waterfall


Dudhsagar Falls - Goa, India

June 28, 2008

  • Dudhsagar Falls is the second highest waterfall in India and proved to be a real challenge to get to. 
    The road which would normally take you there by Jeep was washed out 
    by heavy monsoon rainfall and a raging river was now flowing over it. 
    Alternately, we hired several motorbike riders to take us up to the falls. 
    The ride up was on a very narrow path along the loose gravel of the railway tracks, 
    over several makeshift log spans. We even had a collision between two of the three bikes.
     After about half an hour we had made it as far as we could and had to hike the rest of the
     way along the tracks in the rain. Several hours of walking later
     (and scrambling to get out of the way of oncoming trains in tunnels) we made it to
     the falls which were spectacular.

  • The trip back was just as harrowing, I ended up with several leeches on my foot
     and we didn't get back to the bikes until sunset which meant that we had to negotiate
     the same narrow, winding trail in the dark. Sometimes the journey is just as amazing as
     the destination.
