Among the many hidden surprises of nature at Goa are the Kesarval Springs that are fondly tagged as the natural spa. Flocks of tourists from all age groups visit this amazing place surrounded by dense tropical forests and flawless beauty of nature. It is firmly believed that the medicinal properties of the water can cure skin and eye related ailments. The spring gets its name from ‘kesar val’ which in the Konkani language means ‘eagle’. Only few decades ago, hundreds of eagles would have their colony at a nearby location.

Visitors prefer to visit the springs during monsoons when they turn into small waterfall and boast of crystal clean waters. Bathing in the relaxing water of the spring is a favourite activity among the visitors. Considering its growing importance as a tourist attraction, the local authorities replaced the stone-embedded trail with steps, making the place easily accessible.

Road: The beautiful spring is located about 19 km. from Panaji and is accessible from the National Highway 17 which connects Panaji with Margao. One must cross the Zuari River Bridge and pass through the village of Cortalim to reach the location. Few steps must be descended to reach the exact place.

Railway: Two closest railway stations to the spring are at Karmali (about 14 km. away) and Madgaon (about 20 km. away). Taxis and auto-rickshaws are the convenient modes from these stations to reach the location.

Airway: The only airport of Goa, Dabolim Airport, is only about 12 km. from the spring’s location. You can choose among taxis, cabs and auto-rickshaws to begin the road journey.
