The station which is near and accessible to the falls is Castle Rock station. This railway stop of Dudhsagar is not a station where passengers can keep their expectation high regarding a platform. The passengers along with the visitors are required to climb the rail compartment’s steep ladder that too in about 1-2 minutes stop which is unscheduled. The visitors are expected to walk a kilometer on the tracks from the rail stop to reach the falls. The walk is made a bit tough because of the presence of a 200-meter train tunnel which is entirely dark.

The Indian Railways has banned the passengers from boarding or de-boarding the train at the Dudhsagar railway stop. You will not find fresh drinking water and restroom facilities in the proximity of the falls and the rail stop. Also, you will not find cellular power and road transportation access. Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary which is near Mollem, a Goan village can help you reach the Dudhsagar Waterfalls. Well, you will witness that this Association will take you through the lush and evergreen forests with streams having pristine waters flowing heavily. At the moment, this is the only access to the waterfalls that you will find.

The perks of going through the Association is that you will be able to see the proper view of the Dudhsagar Waterfalls, whereas if you go by Indian railways, then you will be able to see only the half side view of the waterfalls.
