Kesarval Springs

Twenty two kilometres from Panaji lies Kesarval Spring. The spring comes out of hard rocks on the Verna plateau. The spring is believed to be infested with medicinal properties and a large number of people bath in the lake for health. One can reach the spring by taking the national highway leading to Margao. Surrounded among the tropical woodlands and swaying betel palms lays Kesarval. The spring is in its full swing in monsoons when it is full of life, however, it is weak in summers.

 

Vhoddli Zhor and Dhakti Zhor

Zhor in Konkani means spring. These two springs lies in the village of Narora. The village also has the famous Saptakoteshwar temple. People coming to see the temple also drop by these springs. Lying in the rustic surroundings, nestled among the wooded valley and fruit trees is Voddli Zhor or Spring. The spring is a favorite picnic spot with the locals and at times tourists can also be seen enjoying the charming beauty.

 

Medicinal Springs

These springs are located on the Baga beach. If you are tired with the salty sea water or want a healthy rejuvenation, then escape from Baga and head here. The medicinal springs can be reached by taking the narrow road past the Bom Viagem Convent along the cashew covered foothills, and there you are in Springs at Mottant. This is an ideal spot for picnics and bathing as water is considered to be medicinal here.
