What Is It?

The Chapora Fort in Goa is best known as the fort in Dil Chahta Hai, where the actors gazed into the seemingly unending Arabian sea. It is located near Vagator Beach and if you are around in Goa for vacation, we recommend you go, take a hike {literally} there.

What’s So Unique About It?

Although Bollywood lovers have their own reasons for visiting, Chapora is also one of Goa’s biggest forts, with a simply gorgeous, unobstructed view of the sea – namely three beaches, Vagator, Anjuna and Chapora.

How Do I Get There?

It is located in the Vagator area in Goa, which is in North Goa, where all other popularly frequently spots such as Baga, Calangute, Candalim are. If you have hired bikes or cars, you can drive it till a point, and then park it. After that it is quite a high trek up to the fort.

What Should I Carry?

You can also check the Anjuna Flea Market, or grab breakfast while you are there.

So, We’re Saying…

Clear your camera’s storage, delete those unwanted apps and make way for breathtaking sunset pictures and views of the sea to fill up your phone. Those memories will be worth it.
