An awesome place to relieve frustration

An awesome place to receive frustration. A long walk of 16km on railway track from castle Rock to Doodhsagar. We get about 11 caves on the way to Doodhsagar. An adventure trip on a railway track. But must carry eatables with you. You can find none other than you with your group and other groups or couples whatever. Can get refreshed often on the way.

Amazing trip we had

Castlerock is a village . Its in karnataka but people speak marathi as well as English and Hindi . People should definitely come here to visit this place for the beautiful forest . And also the doodhsagar waterfalls . Its the perfect family adventure with peaceful atmosphere . There is an elephant safari and a jeep ride through the forest . The forest wildlife is also a major attraction . But it is difficult to be here in rainy season from June to mid October . Winter is the best time to visit here . I went in the beginning of June and got lucky to have gotten to my destination . It can become unsafe during rains.

Castle Rock Overview

Castle Rock Village is located in the Western Ghats, within Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka and near the state's border with Goa. It is situated at an average elevation of 621 m above sea level. Castle Rock lies 100 km to the north of Karwar and 53 km south of Belgaum. The place is covered with moist tropical forests and is popular for the Dandeli Tiger Reserve.

The village is inhabited by people from Karnataka, Goa and Maharashtra and is dominated by several Hindu communities such as Namadhari, Grama Vokkaligas, Goud Saraswat, Mogaveera, Komarapant, Ager, Nadavara and Chitrapur Saraswat. The languages spoken are Konkani, Kannada, Urdu and English.

Castle-Rock had been marked as a frontier between the Portuguese-held Goa and the British-held India for many years. During the Colonial Era, the Goan towns of Vasco and Margao were connected to the rest of India by meter gauge rail. The tracks and remains of the meter gauge are still present at the railway station of Castle Rock.
