Dudhsagar's verdant jungle and stunning waterfall, are beautiful places to visit with their powerful sprays, which are sights you won't soon forget. This river of milk (called Dudh Sagar which means milk sea)looks like it's pouring down in plenty because of the contrast between the surging water and the lush vegetation.

Virtually 1017 feet up a nearly vertical mountain wall, white water thunders down in a gushing waterfall.

Camping is available as an accommodation choice on some itineraries. If you want to have a positive experience, though, especially on a self-organized hike, you need to pack accordingly.

5. Fort Arvada

Within the walls of the fort is India's oldest surviving lighthouse, constructed in 1864. You can't go to Candolim or Sinquerium Beaches without also checking out Fort Aguada.

A visit to the fort makes for a fun and exciting afternoon. It's normally too hot to enjoy the beach in the afternoon.

Honeymooners show keen interest as it is a beautiful place to visit.
