Beyond beaches and booze, plan a visit to the Upper Sauri Canyon in Goa, where you can experience a thrill like never before! Travel almost 69 km from Panaji and then some more, to make your way into the dense jungles of this locale, for an exhilarating experience. Further, if you have perfect navigation skills and core muscle strength, then abseiling across canyons and waterfalls under the guidance of an expert, is how you should spend this upcoming weekend here!

Survival of the fittest

A chain of six waterfalls and narrow gorges with undulating rocky terrain, the Upper Sauri Canyon in South Goa is a hotspot for adventure aficionados, health enthusiasts and nature lovers. Challenging even the most athletic ones, Upper Sauri Canyoning includes a 40-minute walk, 7-8 jumps and 8-meter abseils. It is believed that the best time to embark upon this day-long excursion is during the summer season when one can escape from the humid weather to cooler surroundings. Further, the terrain is less slippery and the jungle is sans monsoon mosquitoes!

Know before you go!

Canyoning is a risky adventure so kindly ensure that you are carrying your safety gear, which is in functional condition, at all times. Further, this adventure activity is not suitable for faint-hearted people, children, elderlies and people who aren't physically fit to undertake an arduous journey.
