Description

Goa is a land of the most gorgeous waterways and mountains. The Arvalem Waterfalls also known as the Harvalem falls, in Goa, is considered as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Goa and attracts travelers and revelers around the clock. The Arvalem (Called as Harvalem by locals) waterfall, which cascades down from the mountains from a height of 50 meters, is one of the most awe-amazing spots. It is situated at about 2km from the small town of Sanquelim and 8kms from Bicholim, in North Goa. The waterfall is very scenic and is a beautiful picnic spot. This charming waterfall is a mind-blowing experience, with Rudreshwar temple in its vicinity. The temple holds importance for the Hindus who believe in releasing the soul on the 12th day after death. Early in the morning, devotees flock to the temple to pay their obeisance to the deity. While leaving the temple of Rudreshwar, one can descend the staircase to look at a majestic waterfall shedding its exuberant silvery showers all year long and mesmerizing the crowds. You will be awestruck with the thunderous gush of water cascading down the rocky cliffs.

The beautiful Arvalem fall, with a head of about 24 feet high, forms a sizeable lake at the bottom where the visitors and the admirers of temple take immersion in water. The best time to visit this site is just after the copious monsoon when it presents a rapturous, ravishing and riotous aspect. It has a lot of greenery all around with fruit laden trees with various fruits like bananas, breadfruit and coconut palms to name a few. For one who wants to know a little more about God’s creation, he can move on to the caves that are located at some distance from the waterfall. The ancient caves in the vicinity add a touch of antiquity to this picturesque place, which finds a major attraction for the filmmakers as a favorite shooting spot. This waterfall forms a huge lake at the bottom. The best time to visit this site is just after the monsoon when it is fully rapturous. The background has a lot of greenery with fruit laden trees like breadfruits, bananas, and coconut palms. The government has also made a park here from where one can enjoy the scenic beauty.


Tips
