Dudhsagar Plantation

Panaji & Central Goa

A less-touristy alternative to the Ponda region spice plantations, this relatively remote farm is about 30km from Margao on the road to Colem. As well as a spice tour and lunch, you can take a dip in the river or arrange transport to the falls. Tours require minimum five people. There’s also farm-stay accommodation available (double room from ₹3300).
