Chorla Ghat (Marathi: चोरला घाट Kannada: ಚೋರ್ಲಾ ಘಾಟ್) is an Indian nature destination, located on the intersection of the borders of the states of Goa, Karnataka,[1] and Maharashtra.[2] It lies to the north-east of Panaji, Goa (about 50 km (31 mi) by road) and nearly 55 kilometres (34 miles) from Belgaum in Karnataka. It is a part of the Western Ghats in the Sahyadri mountain range, and is at an elevation of 800 metres (2,600 feet). The ghat boasts of a few rare species of wild-life such as the barred wolf snake (Lycodon striatus) in its sub-tropical forests.
