GTDC’s Sunday Monsoon Trekking Expeditions   commence from 23rd June 2019.

This Sunday  (23rd June 2019), the   GTDC  weekly  monsoon trek heads to  Zadani along the banks of River Mhadei.   According to local legends,  Zadani was a thriving village around 800years 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 & Margao at 7.30 a.m. and from Panjim at 8.30 a.m.  Pick up facility also available from Old Goa, Banasthari  &  Sankhali  Yummy food will be served by the villagers of Dhavem, Sattari.
