Shree Gopal Ganapati Devasthan, NH 4, Farmagudi > Safa Masjid, Ponda (2 km)
(Safa Masjid is on the left-side of the road as per our driving directions)
Safa Masjid, Ponda > Sahakari Spice Farm, National Highway 4, turn right(2 km)
(Sahakari Spice Farm is on the right-side of the road as per our driving directions)
(You can also go straight but maybe have to face traffic jam because of mining trucks. The driver advise was to take a right-turn after Sahakari Spice Farm which is approx. 1 km more than the other said route but is better as no traffic And he was correct. I too have experienced traffic jam because of trucks in hundreds when earlier I tried to visit Dudhsagar Waterfalls with motorbike and I have to cancel the tour in the middle of the road-journey)
Sahakari Spice Farm, National Highway 4, turn right > Dabal village(14 km)
(Once you take a right-turn after Sahakari Spice Farm you have to take a left-turn after driving about 2.5 km And another 11 km drive to reach Dabal village)
Dabal village > Collem (20 km)
(Once you reach Dabal village drive another 2 km drive and turn right. Another 1/2 km and turn right. Now you have reached Belgaum Highway again i.e., National Highway 4. Another 4.5 km drive and turn left towards Collem)
The new route by the driver was interesting â€“ no trucks and almost empty road. Lush greenery both side of the road â€“ Interesting. This is inner-road I guess connecting Belgaum Highway via passing through Dabal village.
Once you reach Collem there are jeeps available for entry into Dudhsagar Waterfalls.
