ive just been reading up about the waterfalls and it says that you have to climb boulders and cross planks of wood as bridges etc....i am overweight and not very fit so would this be a problem for me
i can walk for miles but im worried about trying to cross little planks of wood......lol
thanks angie xxx
The hardest thing is the jeep ride to get to the car park.
yes there are some boulders that can make it difficult but it depends where you want to be
I would reccomend good flat shoes with a grip (trainers)
I will look through my photos and upload them for you to make a decision
It would be a shame to travel form england to Goa and miss out on a trip to the falls.
Will post again when uploaded
I have now posted some photographs of the waterfalls in the upload section, if they have disapeared by the time you come to look for them they may have been moved to a dedicated folder in the Goa photograph section.
I have tried to pick photographs iof the terrain to give you an idea of what to expect, they are not normally of the quality that i would post.
Hope they help you make the decision that is right for you
thanks for all your replies.......i am going to go to the waterfalls and will definitely enjoy them....you never know if im brave enough i'll upload some pics myself ......lol
I've had an operation and by reading some of these posts have now decided that I would cope witht the walk without any problems. I am a bit concerned abut the jeep ride though. Someone says that's the worst bit,if it's very bumpy to the point you get thrown about in the vehicle that would not be so good for me. Can anyone advise please???
Also as we only like to carry enough money for the day - If we do go when we get there how much does the jeep ride cost and what other expenses might there be - just to give us an idea of how much to take with us.
Thanks for any help everyone
Then again it could be 1800 roops or 300 each, either i think its a way its a reasonable price.
Permits for cameras are about 100 roops and 200 for camcorders, tip for the driver, food for monkeys
In the past we have hired a maruti for the day, done three trips in the day
The water falls, spice plantation with dinner, elephant ride, hindu temple, hire of a guide and donation to the holy man.
Fed and watered ourselves including the taxi driver and his tip plus souveniers and had a lot of change out of £60 pound
It sounds like I should be fne - gonna gve it a go.
Wear good shoes and that will give you confidence in walking. Also a good tip is to wear a decent bra, as there is a lot of bouncing around in the jeeps
