The forests and waterfalls of Uttara Kannada

Submitted by alvin on Tue, 2016-09-20 12:54 Sathodi falls Uttara Kannada district, a part of which lies in the Western Ghats, is a paradise for nature lovers. Its lush green, dense forests have diverse wildlife, fast flowing rivers, majestic and picturesque waterfalls, placid blue lakes and ancient temples. We started our journey of the Uttara Kannada ghats with Castle Rock. Lying close to National Highway connecting Belagavi and Goa, Castle Rock is on Londa-Vasco rail line. When Portuguese were ruling Goa, Castle Rock was the last station of India, and it was here that the Immigration and Customs formalities were done. While Castle Rock station itself is an attraction, the next train station, where the famous “Doodh Sagar” falls is located, is a must see. Doodh Sagar is a majestic four pronged waterfall. It is one of the tallest waterfalls in India and can be enjoyed only during the rainy season.  Jog view from British Bungalow Bison in Dandelli From Castle Rock, we proceeded to Dandeli, famous for its tiger reserve, dams and adventure sports. On arrival, we went to the Kali Adventure Camp run by Jungle Lodges
