Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

It is finally the season for lounging on the beach with a cocktail in hand and little umbrellas to play with. If you've been looking forward to a vacation in Goa for long time, now is the time to book your tickets and enjoy the scenic views and the luxurious beaches of of this land.

While, travelling to the state people mostly think of crazy parties, free flowing booze and bonfire along the beaches, Goa has a ton more to explore.

So if you're the sort who enjoys escaping in the lap of nature on your vacations, we have just the thing for you. This jeep safari takes you to the scenic Dudhsagar waterfall and on a tour of the Goan spice plantations.

Jeep Safari to the Dudhsagar Waterfall

Dudhsagar, which literally translates to- 'sea of milk', is also India’s 5th tallest waterfall. When water falls from a height of 1020 feet on the rocks, it creates a white foam which is presumably the reason why the waterfall is called Dudhsagar.

Surrounded by the lush hills of the Western Ghats and the deciduous forest, the waterfall is a must visit for people who're looking for an escape in the lap of nature.

The Jeep Safari takes you on a stunning ride through the hills to finally stop near the waterfall. The sound of gushing water, the wind and nature, blend together to create a beautiful cacophony of music. Since the waterfall and the surrounding are anyway a sight to behold, the entire experience becomes a sensory overload.

What else?

If you think that this tour is all about the waterfall, you couldn't be more wrong. Though the tour begins with an expedition to the fall, it progresses to a party at the fall itself, where you can swim, relax and unwind.

After experiencing the fall, you will be taken to a guided tour of the spice plantations of Goa, here you can also enjoy an elephant ride or shower (with extra charges) and relish a quintessential Goan buffet lunch organised at the plantation. Sounds like the perfect day out!
