Trekking Route:
Trek into treacherous wilderness, through gushing streams (depends on season) and winding trails, climbing until we conquer Goa’s fourth highest peak Udaan Dongar in Valpoi Taluka in eastern Goa. Once you reach on hill top, you have almost 360 degree panoramic view of Western Ghats, where even clouds will be below you at times. The region has leopards, deer, Indian bison, snakes and other reptiles, etc.

Attractions:
The Mhadei wildlife sanctuary is also famous for its semi green and evergreen forests. The area has been notified as protected for wildlife. The sanctuary is also well known in Goa, due to a tigress and a cub being spotted here. A lot of other wildlife can also be seen here. With a lot of gushing streams this trek is a favorite for the end experience of getting a 360 degrees view of the entire Western Ghats from the mountain top.
