Wildlife Trekking

One can commence their hiking and trekking trip in Goa from the mighty hills of the Western Ghats called the Shayadris. The greenery in the surroundings will just make the journey amazing. As you pass through the hilly terrain you will come across several waterfalls, national parks and quaint villages. The splendid natural beauty around you will take your breath away.

Places to Cover While Hiking and Trekking in Goa

While planning your hiking and trekking trip, you should try and visit some of the famous places in Goa. The Mollem National Park is very famous for its natural wealth. Since this national park is part of the Bhagwan Mahavi Wildlife Sanctuary, you will find a lot of rare species of plants and animals here. Within the park you will find mud trails that are just perfect for exploring on foot.

From this national park, you can then head to Valpoi which is a small village that is dotted with wooded hills and lands. This village offers plenty opportunity for trekking and hiking. You can also visit Rede Ghati, which is a hunting spot in the village. While exploring the village, you will come across the Nanus fort. This is an ancient ruined fort which is worth visiting. While at Valpoi Village, you can visit the four temples here.

The other famous spot that you shouldn’t miss in your hiking and trekking trip in Goa is the Dudhsagar waterfalls. The Dudhsagar water fall in Goa is the 5th highest waterfall in India. The forested land surrounding the waterfall is just perfect for hiking. From here, you can even head out to the castle rock and thereafter to the Kuveshi waterfalls.

Best Time for Hiking and Trekking in Goa

The best time to do your hiking and trekking in Goa is from October to December. In October, the Goa Hiking Association in Panaji, organizes a trekking trip every year. Another trip is organized in October which is the discovery of the Tudov waterfall which is apparently bigger that the Dudhsagar waterfalls. In December, the Youth Hostel Association of India (Goa branch) organizes the “National trekking expeditions” every year.

Just remember that hiking and trekking is physically very demanding and hence you have to be physically very fit to embark on such expeditions.
