Though beaches are the main attractions of Goa, it has much more to offer in the form of lakes, springs, and falls. Mayem Lake in North Goa set amidst sleepy Goan villages, is an outstanding road trip through pineapple plantations, cashew tree thickets, and areca trees. Carambolim Lake also in north Goa is just about 12km from Panaji. This serene lake is one of the best places in India for bird watching. Surrounding forests are an added attraction.
Dudhsagar Falls with a height of nearly 1020 feet is among the most outstanding waterfalls in India. During the monsoon, the falls in four tiers appear like a stream of foamy milk. Arvalem Falls near Mapusa in North Goa is another spectacular falls. Though not as imposing as Dudhsagar, in the rainy season the sight of gushing water is enthralling.
