Around the series of Western Ghats, the border separating Uttara Kannada district from Goa state is
where Doodsagar Falls seems to gush down from the sky to the earth. The onlooker feels as if
the milk is cascading down from the sky. So that it is called Doodsagar Falls. There is no vehicular facility to reach the place except the railway. Every Sunday, ‘Poorna Express’ from Puna to Ernakulam travels from Belgaum at 8 am. Getting down at Doodsagar Railway Station, one km of a walk along the track reaches the travelers to the falls. 20kms away from the beautiful Castle Rock, the scenery of Western Ghats becomes a realization.
