FIRST GLIMPSE OF THE WATERFALL FROM THE RAILWAY TRACK
U CAN REACH THIS PLACE VIA TRAIN FROM BELGAUM NIJAMUDDIN EXPRESS WHICH RIDES IN MIDNIGHT ON EVERYDAY OR  ON ENACULAM EXPRESS FROM BELGAUM WEEKLY TRIP ( SUNDAYS). MAJOR SPOTS DURING THIS JOURNEY ARE CASTLE ROCK STATION THEN KARANJOEL LAST POINT OF KARNATAKA BORDER THEN THE BRIGANZA  GHAT FINALLY LEADING TO THE FALLS. SONALIM AND KULEM ARE THE STATIONS WHICH FOLLOWS DOWN STREAM OF THE RIVER.
MERELY 15 KM JOURNEY BETWEEN CASTLE ROCK AND DOODHSAGAR TAKES AN HOUR THANKS TO ITS BREATHTAKING CURVES , LONGLASTING TUNNELS, NO OF SMALL STREAMS ACROSS THE TRACK.



FALLS IS AWESOME AND KNOWN TO BE ONE OF THE HIGHEST WATERFALLS IN ALL OF INDIA CONSIDERING TOTAL DEPTH. 
TRAIN TRACK DIVIDES THE FALLS INTO UPPER AND LOWER PORTIONS. UPPER ONE IS KNOWN FOR ITS DANGEROUS SPEED ,MISTY BREEZE WHICH U CAN EVEN FEEL WHEN U PASS BY TRAIN IN MONSOONS.
IN LOWER SIDE , A SMALL POND IS FORMED FACILITATING SWIMMING  THANKS TO GOA GOVERNMENT FOR MAKING THIS SPOT WONDERFUL FOR FOREIGNERS TO VISIT.
THIS PLACE IS FLOODED WITH FOREIGNERS IN SUMMER STARTING FROM JANUARY.
THIS RIVER FINALLY MEETS RIVER MAHADAYI ORIGINATING  FROM KARNATAKA  AND FLOWS IN GOA AS MANDOVI.
IN INDIAN MYTHOLOGY RAMAYANA WIFE OF BHARAT  ( BROTHER OF LORD RAMA) IS MANDOVI.
