waterfalls, springs, forts, etc. There are quite a few picturesque lakes,
springs and waterfalls gifted by Mother Nature, in the interior regions

ARVALEM WATERFALLS - BICHOLIM
9 kms. south of Bicholim town at Arvalem, it is a 24-metre high waterfall,
best viewed after the monsoons. The ancient caves in the vicinity adds
a touch of antiquity to this picturesque place, which finds a major attraction
for the film makers as a favourite shooting spot.
Measuring a mighty 600m from head to foot, the famous waterfalls at DUDHSAGAR
, on the Goa-Karnataka border, are some of the highest in India, and a
spectacular enough sight to entice a steady stream of visitors from the
coast into the rugged Western Ghats. After pouring across the Deccan plateau,
the headwaters of the Mandovi River form a foaming torrent that fans into
three streams, then cascades 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 foam kicked up at
the bottom when the water levels are at their highest. Overlooking a steep,
crescent-shaped head of a valley carpeted with pristine tropical forest,
Dudhsagar is set amid breathtaking scenery that is only accessible on
foot or by Jeep; the old Vasco-Castle Rock railway actually passes over
the falls on an old stone viaduct, but services along it are infrequent.
The spring emerges from hard and compact rocks and people bathe in its
water with strong belief that it has medicinal properties.
MAYEM LAKE - BICHOLIM
35 kms. from Panaji, this artificial lake surrounded amidst rolling green
hills is an ideal picnic spot. Good accommodation Amenities are available
in Cottages. Boating is available in the lake.
