Hivrem is a village located 75 kms from Panaji in Sattari Taluka. From Hivrem one can see the Sahyadris mountains whose peak just blend into the sky, while its feet appear to float on a sea of green fields. And somewhere in between this, a patch of white catches the eye – the distant Hivrem waterfall.
Yes one can go right up into its cascades but only after a brisk walk of about 45 minutes, including some tough climbing. After panting and puffing, the Hivrem waterfall finally stands right before your eyes ! Its cooling cascades make one gasp with pleasure as the pains of the strenuous workout just get washed away in the crystal watersHivrem is a picturesque partof Goa that is little known and less explored. Hivrem is a village that plays hard to get – it is situated 15 kms from Valpoi.
The Hivrem- Valpoi trek is a moderately difficult trek with a steep uphill climb making it very satisfying for the avid trekker. There are three waterfalls in close proximity to each other and a more experienced trekker can cover all three in a day. Trekkers need to cross a number of pretty rivulets before taking in the breath taking view from the top of the hill. The gushing waterfall emerging from under dense vegetation makes for a truly majestic sight.
The trek is about 7- 8 km through dense tropical vegetation. You may come across the Indian giant squirrel or catch a glimpse of deer or the wild Indian Gaur. Birdwatchers can feast their eyes on the famous Malabar Grey Hornbill and a variety of rare species also present here. Tiger sightings are possible, although extremely rare, but you never know what you may encounter in the wild!
