Dudhsagar Falls (literally meaning The Sea of Milk) is a tiered waterfall located high up on the Mandovi River in the state of Goa, India, on Goa's border 3 cubic metres per second

The waterfall: The falls lie high up in the Mandovi River's watershed and so are not particularly spectacular during the dry season. During the monsoon season however, the falls are transformed into one of the most powerful falls in India. Dudhsagar Falls is listed as India's 5th tallest waterfall, and is 227th in the world at 310 m.

Best season to visit: The fall is generally calm durin summers. During monsoon, the falls become alive and attracts tourists mostly during monsoon season.

What to do at falls: Swimming is a good options at the bottom of the falls. But one has to make sure that the water is calm in desired area. The sure-footed adventurers could try and climb up to the head of the falls through bushes, boulders and water. It’s a tough climb which takes at least a couple of hours. The fall's surrounding area form a good picnic spot. While visiting Dudhsagar falls, one should ensure that at least entire day is spent near the falls.
