COMPLETE POSTAL ADDRESS: Joshi Wines, Opp. Old Secretariat, Panaji, Goa.
BREIF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM: Goa - the land of silvery sands, golden sun and the exciting Western Ghats - is the destination for enthusiastic trekkers to connect with Mother Nature through expeditions organised by Goa State Branch of YHAI. The participants will enjoy a splendid panorama of hills, sandy beaches, refreshing waterfalls, beautiful landscapes, breath taking groves of palm trees, sun kissed waterways, Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary and Dudhsagar falls. The hilly trek of Western Ghats provides trekking trails as steep and difficult as the Himalayan climbs. The trekking route will therefore, offer the same thrills and excitement as in any mountain with some additional attractions like bus ride, and rail journey in the Western Ghats.
