Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary
Head north of Valpoi in the north of Goa to reconnect with nature in the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary. The 80-square-meter preserve, nestled in the Western Ghats, is considered an area of high biodiversity. Wildlife here includes black panthers, leopards, sloth bears, and Bengal tigers. It was recently proposed that Mhadei become a part of Project Tiger, a government initiative to conserve a viable tiger population. Look high! The sanctuary is also an International Bird Area, with 255 recorded species. Besides wildlife, the preserve is dotted with dozens of waterfalls, most notably the dual Vazra Sakla and Virdi Falls. There are no public tourist facilities; allow yourself three hours for a self-guided exploration of the sanctuary.
