Goa Tourism’s Monsoon Trekking Expeditions to commence from June 23

Tommorow, June 23, the   GTDC  weekly  monsoon trek heads to Zadani along the banks of River Mhadei.   According to local legends,  Zadani was a thriving village around 800 years ago. However, for reasons unknown, the residents of Zadani migrated to other places totally abandoning it. Currently, the existence of a Shiva lingam and a nandi at Zadani are the only two sings that the place was inhibited by people ages ago.

Now every year more than five hundred locals visit the place   to celebrate  Mahashivratri and to take the blessing of lord Shiva. The trek will cover a distance of 4 kms through semi forests and lush greenery. The trekking expedition is open to all especially those with a spirit for adventure and nature lovers.
Transport arrangements have been made from Mapusa and Margao at 7.30a.m. and from Panjim at 8.30 a.m.  Pick up facility also available from Old Goa, Banasthari and Sankhali  Yummy food will be served by the villagers of Dhavem, Sattari.
Interested trekkers are requested to carry along an extra pair of clothes, rainwear, trekking shoes, drinking water, snacks, and binoculars.  Smoking and consumption  of alcohol prohibited.
