Here you can become immersed in their world and the Goan way of living. One wakes every morning up to sweet birdsong - bulbuls, woodpeckers and birds of colourful plumage.

Goa is famous for the beauty of its countryside, palm groves, rice paddies and 106 kilometers of sandy beaches, and indescribably colorful sunsets over the Arabian Sea. It offers its visitors an unexpectedly diverse blend of Indian and Mediterranean European culture, with colorful saris, exotic flowers and birds, oriental bazaars and mediterranean markets, well-preserved medieval forts, churches and temples.
Though normally more associated with beaches, parties, heritage and colourful markets rather than Wilderness and remote landscapes, Goa can be full of surprise for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts. The lakes and rivers form the life of Goa and offers a rich biodiversity and scenic beauty that can be enjoying through back water cruises, kayaking or simply canoeing through the waterways. Rock climb, walk and cycle trek through scenic waterfalls, dense forests and historical places. Or even white water raft Mahdei/Surla Rivers in Goa through the exhilarating monsoons.
