Trail Overview

Our two faces, the villages of Rachol & Shiroda, though neighbors, completely contrast each other when it comes to local culture! 
Let us welcome you to a unique experience of Goa where all of your five senses are treated.

You are welcomed to the first face: Rachol, a beautiful riverine village. The village boasts of an old-world charm through a lost fortress, shrouded in mystery & it's monumental Seminary - promising to remind you of its glorious past of Portuguese rule - which also stands as the largest in Asia! You are then transported to a completely different land on a ferry boat - the village of Shiroda - where you will uncover a cultural gem untouched by the Portuguese - accompanied with some very interesting legends!  Here is where you realize these two beautiful faces indeed complete your journey in Goa!
