Once you reach the Mollem National Park, embark on an adventurous 10 km Jeep ride across the river and rocky terrain to the base of the waterfall. A company representative will help co-ordinate a private jeep for you, so no need to wait in line. Spend 1 hour taking in the mesmerizing sights of the waterfall, before making your way back to the parking in the Jeep. After this, hop into your car and make your way to a local Spice Plantation in southern Goa. Enjoy a traditional Indian welcome at the spice plantation with soothing herbal tea. Awaken your senses as you take a leisurely walk around the spice plantation, observing the flora around you. Learn about the different uses of each plant in Indian nutrition, health and lifestyle, including tips for common ailments such as cold and headaches. Savor a delicious buffet-style Goan lunch.
