Arvalem Waterfalls - Review
The Arvalem waterfalls are situated at a height of 70 feet, situated in the vicinity of the towns of Sanquelim and Bicholim. It is provincially situated in Valpoi taluka, North Goa. The pattern of the water falling is almost vertical and this is even more impressive rainy season. The fall looks astonishing with the boom of the water falling down the rocky landscape of the mountain situated behind it. Not far from this site are situated the fifth century Rock Cut hollows called the "Aravalem Caves”, which have been speculated to be the dwellings of the Pandavas. The Shree Rudreshwar Temple, which is also a short distance away, is the site Shivratri Zatra.
The Government has now set up a recreation center from which you can get a divine view of the waterfalls. This beautifully secluded natural wonder with its exquisite waters is the best place to enjoy nature’s bounty. The extremely popular site is also popular with the film industry as a shooting locale.

Arvalem Waterfalls, Panaji Reviews
Awesome waterfall. Great location for pics. Safe and secure well barricaded. Not many eateries around so carry something to eat. The waterfall mist will get you drenched within 5 seconds so do carry a towel.
Visited this place during peak monsoon season (July). The waterfall was at its best. There is a viewing point and we are not supposed to go to the base of the falls. But the water force was so powerful that the water drops were literally hitting our faces. Even after having visited many waterfalls, this was a unique experience for me
The falls were flowing with full power and the mist felt like rain.. the gushing water gives you chills although you can't bathe in the falls. It's great to look at and has an ancient shiva temple alongside. The place doesn't have much to do and has minimal stalls so don't expect to enjoy a full day out here! 😺 Do climb up and have great home made tea served by smiling and welcoming people
Amazing. The view is fantastic, don't go to the shops just beside the fall as they serve ridiculous tasting tea for 20/- a cup. There's a temple just beside the fall, it's beautiful and there is a cave, nearby. It's not good enough though.
Go during the monsoons and the place will not dissapoint. We went with a bunch of kids in July and they absolutely loved it. The spray from the waterfall fall towards the viewing area so be prepared to get a little wet.
