Train in Heaven-Like-Waterfall !!!

It is not a ‘photoshop-ed’ picture… but an extremely scenic location in Konkan region, India. This water fall’s name is Dudh Sagar. It is located  exactly on the border between Goa and Karnataka states.

The falls lay high up in the Mandovi River’s watershed and so, are not particularly striking during the dry season. However during the monsoon season, the falls are transformed into one of the most powerful & fascinating falls in India.

The water thunders down hundreds of feet in large volumes during the monsoon season, forming one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the country. This ‘four-tiered’ waterfall, with a total height of 310 meters (1017 feet) and a width of around 30 meters (100 feet), is also a major chunk of the Goa Ecosystem

Dudhsagar Falls is listed as India’s 5th tallest waterfall and is 227th in the world.

Arguably the best reason to enjoy ‘Train journey through the lush Konkan route’ ….


A hidden ‘gem’…

One of the countless hidden treasures in India… A location that satisfies even the most enthusiastic of trekkers.…  the Ratangad.

In local, Ratan means ‘Gem’. Rightly so, this “Ratan (Gem)-gad” is a hidden ‘gem of a location’ in the scenic Bhandardara region near Nashik (in Maharashtra state, India). This location lies near Harishchandragad and Kalsubai peak.

Ratangad is located 20 kilometers away from the Bhandardara dam – one of the oldest artificial catchment area. This hilly terrain also houses a 400+ years old Fort and a Lord Shiva Temple – remains of the Maratha Empire legacy.

Lashing rains, extreme windy conditions and exciting climbs make Ratangad one of the best-ever trekker’s spot in the subcontinent.
