Falls of the Beloved.
Deep in the Western Sahyadri range at an elevation of 800 m in northeast Goa is perched its highest village, Surla. Access to this remote outpost involves a steep climb up the winding mountain pass of Chorla Ghat, and then a brief foray across the state border into Karnataka before a forked path leads back into Goa to this speck of a village. There are expansive views to be had from the lookout here, and the vistas are especially high on drama during the monsoons when the romance of water and wind is at its peak. Last month I made 3 excursions in the space of a week to this enchanting location.
This waterfall seen from Surla (pronounced like the French ‘sur la table’) is known by its Konkani name Ladkyacho Vozar, meaning “Falls of the Beloved.” A short video clip below gives a sense of the mood.
Lovely photograph. I have been working in the village of Surla on a wildlife project for the past 3 years now. Feels great to see that you have had such a lovely experience there. This village and its surrounding forests are unparalleled!

Very good photo.
Such a wonderful sight magnificently captured in camera. The lighting captured in the first photo is really great!!!
One of the most enthralling view of the place, captured in a poetic manner.Thanks for the visual treat
Wow. That second shot is one of the most beautiful landscape images I’ve ever seen of Goa…well done.
Excellent place and great capture of the waterfall, did you use some filter for the red flame type of effect or was it done in post processing? Thanks for sharing the place info, its on my TO visit places in near future…
