We trekked rather tracked our way through. The interest is rekindled and I am here to post on the interesting experience while on a trip.
How does it feel when your blind date happens to be of the same sex rather than the other gender? That is how exactly i felt when we felt during the trekking trip to the amazing Doodh Sagar Falls. What i expected and what it turned out to be were absolutely different, I was not quite impressed at first but I am still loving every minute of it till date considering that as one of my best outings till date.
It all started with a short halt at Mangalore where we roamed around locally to few temples and beaches and dinner at a restaurant where the waiter cannot wait to take our orders 😛 Amazing wait in the railway station till midnight over even past it to board the train to Madgoan. Then came the hardest part of it all.
Get down from the train in just 4 hours to come to know that you have another 3 hours for the next train to Goa/Dhoodhsagar. Having boarded the train with a open ticket in a reserved compartment, we were being hunted by the officials and we had to resort to every possible act in the book to hid ourselves and finally we got to castle rock and had our breakfast in leaky cordon.
We set off our journey into woods through a village which a friend of mine boasted he knew well of. But the bad luck continued to trail us, we ever informed that we need to get permission from the forest ranger who is like miles away. Then came the horrendous train journey back to Doodhsagar station which did not have a platform again after evading many Officials…..
It was a stunning sight to see the water flow down from such height. But the main part of our adventure started here. We searched and inquired our way to reach the top. But our friend Bad luck wins again. We missed the path in between double tunnel. We still had the best solution on hand. Walk in tow as friends with fun talk and not knowing where this one is going to end. Just like our childhood school days where we didn’t mobile in hand and just humans talking the language we enjoy. Walking in the woods and seeing awesome creatures on our way through including Peacocks, Monkeys and snakes that looked like sticks.
Finally, we labored through to a station and somehow found our ways back to the Margoa station. Slept on the platform with unknown bugs and people lying around us, rather I was awake the most part of the night.This was an experience on its own.This happening 2 months before my marriage was terrifying. But thinking of it now, it was all fun and yes our stay in GOA was not so different but a less dramatic.
