Hi Guys! I am here to provide you some useful info about Goa, a small tropical paradise that lies on the West coast of India. Cradled between the rugged ranges of the western ghats and the Arabian sea, this sea-washed, sundrenched former Portuguese territory presents a fusion of cultures seldom found anywhere in the world. The palm-lined coastal plains, the wooded uplands and beaches so still and endless, create an illusion of lethargy - laziness Almost. But, in reality, there are none more than the Goans full of song, dance and Merriment.


A beautiful fishing village that is located in North Goa with beautiful hilltops overlooking the Arabian sea and swaying palm trees. It was in this village where the Hippies first arrived in the late 1950s to mid-1960s to gain peace of mind and drown in its beauty.

The Flea market which is held every wedneday, was started by the Hippies who used to sell their belongings for money. Now the market is dominated by people from other states like the Kashmiris, Lamanis, Tibetians though you will manage to find some forigeners still having their shops.

It is the hippies who started these rave beach parties wherein they would sing and dance through out the night under the vast blue sky lit only by the moonlight.



This is the aftermath of monsoons in Goa. The effects of monsoon in Goa is nothing except greenary all over and Nature is at its Best.
