Nature Treks

Nature is at it’s best in Goa’s hinterland. Life is still slow and rural in these parts. The closest biodiversity hotpots are Chorla Ghat (57 minutes away) and Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary (48 kms) where you can spend an entire day with the family. Apart from the treks, in the monsoons these areas come alive to the gushing sounds of countless waterfalls and springs. Take a guide with you because it’s easy to lose your way.  

Monuments

The closest historical places are a few kilometres away, close to the main town. The well-known Saptakoteshwar temple is less than 5 kms away in Naroa. It’s easy to reach by car. This 12th century temple was originally located on Divar island and later moved here during the Portuguese.  Other natural heritage sites are the Aravalem caves and springs where one can go for a refreshing dip. If you still want to venture further away, an hour away is the beautiful stone carved temple of Tambdi Surla.
