Its the Goa season. But this is the Goa that I have not seen. One hour from Panjim, the scenery,and the colours changes . Not beaches, but hills . The blues become green. Not parties,but solitude...Its beautiful, green and quiet . At Chorla Ghats , the wildnest resort is nestled between the borders of Karnataka , Maharashtra and Goa .
We chanced on this resort when we were desperate to get away from the corporate life. It was an overnight decision that made us book our tickets and make good our escape . It was replete with treks , looking for waterfalls,scouting for small snakes and a bit of bird watching.
Or you can just drink and sleep and rest all those blues .As fugitives, we sought refuge in nature, before getting back to the Goa,which we all know ...
Getting there This part of Goa is nestled in the Chorla Ghats which is in the karnataka-maharashtra-goa border .Its in the Swapnagandha valley . Its equidistant from panjim -65 kms or from Belgaum -60 kms .

There is nothing more beautiful in the world than Indian countryside . Sharath and I discovered this on our anniversary when we decided to become vagabonds for a day and give in to our wanderlust
So we drove around karnataka,without a destination in our minds ,running past fields and plantations, stopping by woods and lakes , and pausing by to take a moment around small hillocks to see what we are missing in life ....
