Goa in pictures

If you have never been to Goa then you are missing out on one the most popular destinations of India. Goa is considered as the party capital. But there is more to Goa than just partying on the blue beaches. Goa has many Portuguese churches and if you happen to like Indian food then Goa has lots of interesting dishes for you to try. In addition, Goa is very scenic so why not take the opportunity and do a nature tail. If you like wildlife then you should visit the Bhagwan Mahavir and the Bondla Wildlife Sanctuaries. There are numerous waterfalls for you to discover, for example the secluded Dudhsagar waterfall on the Mandovi River is quite a popular one where the only locals visit.

Water sports are one of the most popular activities in Goa. In fact, this is what most tourists plan to do on the many beaches of Goa. Some of the water sports include jet skiing, wind surfing, scuba diving, para-sailing and dolphin cruises or just simply building sand castles and drinking beer. The Anjuna Beach remains open well after midnight while the Arambol beach is where you can head to if you like live music.

I will be showing photos of Indian destinations called “India in Pictures” and Goa in pictures had to be my first one as most International tourists when they think of India, they think of Goa as their number one destination.

If you love trekking then you must check out the Dudhsagar waterfall which is situated in a very remote location on the Mandovi River and therefore not accessible by car. You can either walk it or hire a 4×4 SUV at the many car centres that hire vehicles to tourists.
