During the monsoon, passengers find it easy to see streams of water flowing over rocks near the tracks. Also, one can see clouds floating at the level of the train, making the journey more heavenly. Therefore, it is a visual treat to travel by this route.
The most scenic section of this train route that connects New Delhi to Goa is the coastal section between Goa and the Londa in Karnataka. However, the Goa Express train winds through hills and forests, passing peaks and valleys of the Western Ghats. Although, the undisputed highlight of this trip is when passengers get to see the long silvery cascade of Dudhsagar Falls. However, this fall is best viewed on Goa’s outbound journey to Delhi when the waterfall is visible in clear daylight.
So, I would suggest you undertake a journey during the monsoon season in the Konkan Railways and give your eyes a retreat to experience the quietude and placidity of nature as well as witness the immaculate marvel of engineering. The Konkan Railways is undoubtedly the most beautiful and astounding railway route in India and connects the western coast of India with the rest of the country. The Konkan Railway spans 738 kilometres through the states of Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka. It passes through some of the most stunning scenic spots. This route goes through the beautiful Western Ghats and has numerous tunnels and bridges with hundreds of streams and rivers.
