The Chapora Fort is situated in North Goa. It is one of the top tourist places in Goa. Built in red laterite stones, the fort has steep slopes on all the sides and stands on an area which has irregular outer plan. This massive fort was constructed by the king of Bijapur, Adil Shah. This is one reason why it has been named Shahpura, which means the 'town of Shah'. The Chapora Fort is one of the prime attractions on Goa. The fort was built in order to keep a watch on Hindu raiders who wanted to set up their territory in Goa. The fort was destroyed after the rule of Adil Shah and was rebuilt by the Portuguese in 1617, on the site of an earlier Muslim structure. The Portuguese troops surrendered to the Maratha ruler Sambhaji in 1684 but the locals were not too pleased with this situation and hence Marathas were forced to withdraw their forces from the fort in 1717. Portuguese took over it again and rebuilt the fort until they finally abandoned it 1892. Today the Chapora Fort lies in ruins and although one can see the heads of the two tunnels to aid in escaping in case of an emergency. The massive ramparts and scattered Muslim tombstones are all that is left of this fort. The fort gives a spectacular view of the Vagator and the Anjuna beach. There are no particular visiting hours to visit this fort, however early morning and evening are preferred as you can get some great views during these hours. Sunset from the fort is a beautiful experience. The path to the Fort from parking area is filling with red laterite stones and is slippery. One has to be careful while walking on this path.

Entry Fee: Jeep Ride to Waterfalls: Rs. 400 per person

Dudhsagar Falls is the largest and highest fall of Goa. It is one of the must visit Goa visitor Places and is often represented in promotion of Goa Tourism. Dudhsagar Falls is another popular attraction not to miss in a Goa Tour packages. Dudhsagar falls is a four tiered waterfall located on the Mandovi River in Goa. This waterfall is amongst India's tallest waterfalls with a height of 310 m (1017 feet) and an average width of 30 m (100 feet) at its peak. This falls is located inside the Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary, at the border between Karnataka and Goa states. Dudhsagar literally means a Sea of Milk in the local Konkani language and gets its name as it appears like an overflowing sea of milk. It is a four tiered waterfall with different ways to reach each level. The bottom of the waterfall is accessible through the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary. The waterfall is also called Vajra Sakala Falls by the locals but most people know it as Tambdi Surla falls based on the popular trekking trail to the waterfall which starts from Tambdi Surla Mahadev Temple. According to legend, the waterfall was once the abode of a beautiful princess. The princess used to drink sweetened milk from a golden jug after she took a bath. One day, she spotted a prince watching her while she drank the milk. She poured the milk to form a curtain to hide her modesty. Own vehicles are not allowed into the sanctuary to reach the waterfall. The most common and easiest way to reach the waterfall is to take a forest department (or licensed private) jeep from the forest entrance (private jeeps are available near Kulem (Collem) Railway Station) and hike 1 km distance from the dropping point. This service is closed during monsoon (June - mid October). Trekking to the waterfall is also a popular activity. The most adventurous route is to trek from Kuveshi village. It is not allowed during monsoon as it requires crossing Mandovi River. The 10 km long route passes through thick jungle. During monsoon, the trek from Castle Rock railway station to the waterfall is very popular. It is about 14 km long and offers amazing views of the valley. The third trail starting from Kulem railway station is about 11 km long. Another, more popular approach is to reach the middle of the Dudhsagar waterfalls through the railway tracks. One can travel in a passenger train from Margao to Kulem to reach the tracks in middle of the waterfall (there is no route to trek to the bottom of the falls from here). There are no shops near the waterfalls so carry food and water with you. The waterfall is at its peak flow during the monsoon months from June to September and wanes out towards the summers from March to June. The best time to visit is during October / November.
