Thank you!
I drive a Wagon R and can imagine the track it would be when you say 4x4. So is there any way to get the glimpse of the falls even from a distance if not very close to the falls, like a view point or a point where we can stop our car and walk a little bit to get to falls?

Thanks in advance!

It should take you around 3-4 hours to cover the stretch of 170kms from Belgaum to Panjim,through the ghats.

Thank you for the info. I guess we will need 4 to 5 hours or half day to do this. Not sure we can spend that much time on Day1 as our stay in Goa is for two and half days.

Any recent update on Belgaum - Amboli - Sawanthwadi - Goa stretch?

Thanks

The road in the Anmod Ghat never really touches or gets anywhere close to the Dudhsagar falls, The railway track though goes right next to it.

Your best bet would be to park your car at Mollem and ask for the Jeep Taxis that ply to DudhSagar to take you there. They will take you to a spot a little away from the base of the falls. Takes about 30 mins to reach. From there it is a 5-10 mins track till the actual falls but you see it from right below. You will see the railway overbridge way up from here. Its still beautiful from here and the vegetation is thick but its a great experience. You need to get in and get out before 1800 hours - Reserved Area.

The best view (option) though is to get to Dudhsagar Railway station and trek to the falls on the railway track. You will come to a railway bridge right next to the falls. This can be done even from Castle Rock Railway Station, but the trek could be longer. Again a 30 mins trek.

But I would suggest that if you are short on time and have small kids then to avoid the falls. Too hectic to get there (no proper route). Unless you have a 4x4, which in your case is a limitation.

Quite frankly getting to the falls is a big part of Dudhsagar falls. Its through thick forest though the sound of the hire jeeps spoils it.

Got myself locked out of the forum and work too got a bit demanding.

Yes very much possible and loads of fun.

We did the Dudhsagar Falls on motorcyle, cycles and trek a lot of times. We have even camped in Castle Rock. The monsoons is the best to go there. No road, no grip, muck and rain. PERFECT!!

Default Driving to Goa

I am also driving to Goa next week for a 4 day trip. I would like to know some contact details of a decent beach resort to stay and explore the places around. Would also like to know the places I should not miss to see in Goa as I have zero knowledge about it.The latest comfortable road route tip from Bangalore also will be helpful.I am planning to start early morning of 9th and reach Goa by evening.

YES!! YES!! YES!!

During the monsoons would be preferrable. I am getting goosies thinking of pushing that 200 kg behemouth through slush and muck. It was much easier on a RX100.

OT: Restoration is getting a bit tough though. Some parts dont exist.

Sounds like a plan. Need to drive down to Goa next month cos missing the sweets that I tasted 6 months ago. So I'm looking into a new route to get across from NH4 to Nh17. Maybe ranjit will let me know about the SH from Nipani to Phondaghat.
For parts you can check WELCOME to Stewart Engineering

Default Goa - Hyderabad Route Query

Am planing to drive from Goa to Hyderabad later this week in a Honda Jazz. I read that NH9 is being converted into four lanes, and is currently in a bad condition. Also heard that roads via Karnataka are generally bad & single lane. Also not sure of the impact of the recent rains.

Our preference is to take a double lane or better in good condition. Can someone suggest the best route to take?

We are still debating whether to do this in one shot or have a night halt somewhere.

Thanks a ton.

ps. Looked at the Goa thread, but the info was dated & wasn't sure how the road conditions had changed.


Note from Support: Thread merged with exsiting.

Further to my previous post, three routes suggested by Google Maps are given below. Would appreciate feedback on these or please suggest better routes. I will start from either Mapusa or Madgaon.

Via Kolhapur & Solapur

via Bijapur, Gulbarga & Zaheerabad

via Dharwar, Hubli, Raichur, Jadcherla

The last map has two sub-options via Bijapur, Gulbarga, Zaheerabad & via Bijapur, Solapur, Zaheerabad.

Thanks a ton.
