If you think that Goa is just known for its golden sand beaches, you are here for a surprise. There are a lot more attractions in Goa that are known to very few people. One of them is Kesarval Falls which is located just 19.7 km from Panjim. The Kesarval falls in Goa is known for its medicinal properties as well as its picturesque landscape.
