The Vazra Sakla Falls

The Vazra Sakla falls of the Chorla Ghats lie on the fringes of the Goa-maharashtra-karnataka borders and are one of the most distinguishing landmarks of the region. Cascading from a height of 143 meters and fed by the Haltar nullah the wate rs of these twin falls join the Valvanti river in Virdi village of Maharashtra. The Valvanti river then joins the Sakhali river and later meets the Mandovi, our Mother river.

The rock faces and cliffs that envelop the Vazra falls are also home and nesting grounds of the Long Billed vultures, an endangered species of vulture in Asia.
