Landscape - Take A Deep Breath, A Pure High In Goa's Natural Terrain

Goa Landscapes
Goa Landscapes

Goa is a place whose topographical horoscope is dominated by pristine sands and roaring waves. With the Sahyadri Ghats embracing from the east, the Arabian Sea kissing its long western coastline and its placid rivers criss-crossing midlands to form a perplexed heart at country side, Goa is indeed a land of many flavours and fragrances. This palm fringed land is located on the western coast of India, on a land called Konkan and is margined by the state of Maharashtra to the north, and Karnataka to the east and south. Internationally applauded for its beaches, the second smallest state of India, Goa is visited by thousands of foreign and domestic tourists each year, and has become one of the most favoured holiday destinations on the tourism map of the world.

A Common Landscape That Offers An Uncommon Delight

There are many reasons why Goa boasts of world famous beaches. Take into account the untouched natural beauty sprawled over a rustic landscape, silver sand beaches and serene fishing villages that gives way to colourful markets filled with smiling people, lush paddy fields dotted with red-tile-roofed white villas, canopied in bright bougainvillea bushes, and its true that you can't escape from the charm that makes for a perfect holiday vacation. In addition to this, you have a 131 km (81 miles) long shoreline that is easily accessible from any destination that encourages a harbour - Maldives, Gulf, and Southeast Asian countries. The beaches not only allure tourists with their tropical aroma but also with their infrastructure, activities and most importantly, nightlife.

However, the other side of the state gives you a completely different panorama. Crowned by magnificent hilltops and attired in dark deep jungles, Goa is mesmerisingly beautiful. And also it gives you an alternative to spend some days of your holiday in peace and solitude. Climb the highest point 'Sonsogor', nestling at an altitude of 1,167 metres (3,827 feet) and you can enjoy a great vista of Goa. In between the esthetic yet diverse landscape, rests an incredibly emerald paddy, a silvery canal fringed by coconut palms, a bank of rich red Konkan earth drenched by the Zuari and the Mandovi rivers, with their tributaries draining 69% of the total geographical area. Besides, Goa has more than three hundred ancient tanks built during the reign of Kadamba dynasty and over a hundred medicinal springs that rejuvenates hundreds of tourists round the year.

Go Green With Goa

Interestingly, Goa has a small definition as far as geography is concerned. Listen to the call of the seas to reach the pristine beaches and then move to its wild heart. No doubt, the inescapable gurgling waves that once made way to Portuguese now attracts travellers from every pockets of the world. Perching on green fields, Goa flaunts of innumerable Portuguese churches and mansions that are an amazement in themselves, thereby making the varied topography an attraction in itself.
