About the Place:
===============================
All along this monsoon trek there will nothing other than picturesque greenery, mist, rain and about a hundred mini waterfalls which are only visible in the monsoon months. Monsoon is the best time to trek Dudhsagar and nature is at its best. Back to life streams creating lovely waterfalls. Sun playing hide and seek behind thick canopy of clouds. Mist covering the valley. Stunning valleys with waterfalls cascading from the hilltop.

About the Place
===============================
The magnificent Dudhsagar Waterfall is perched in the high peaks of the Western Ghats and is a sight to behold especially in the monsoons when it is in full and furious flow. From a distance, the waterfall appears like streams of milk rushing down the mountainside. Measuring a mighty 310 meter from head to foot, this waterfall on the Goa-Karnataka border in the rugged Western Ghats. After pouring across the Deccan plateau, the headwaters of the Mandovi River form a foaming torrent that splits into three streams to cascade down a near-vertical cliff face into a deep green pool. The Konkani name for the falls, which literally translated means "sea of milk", derives from clouds of milky foam which rises up at the bottom of the falls. Dudhsagar is set amidst breathtaking scenery overlooking a steep, crescent-shaped head of a valley carpeted with pristine tropical forest.

What you expect from this trek:
=> Non Stop Rain

=> You also may get leeches sucking blood from your feet
