yeah,That is right ! Tapola is called Mini Kashmir of west , its small village with Koyna reservoir , beauty in its own simplistic way. It’s 2 days plan if you are planning for vasota Trek.
How To reach?
Well, its 25 km away from Mahabaleshwar which is famous hill station in Maharashtra. You can see ‘Things to do in Mahabaleshwar‘ for more details, So cheapest way is via bus from Mahabaleshwar/satara and convenient way is private vehicle. On the way we will see different kinds of birds , we have seen vulture,peacock who has fanned out feathers to display.
1st Day -Trek
You can reach early morning Tapola or if you are planned to combine with Mahabaleshwar trip then you can come here by evening and have a stay.
we had stayed at koyna agro tourism which is located very near to Tapola Lake in green zon. Good place to visit in group-family, friends.They do provide tasty local food ,basic amenities to stay.
we kept our luggage and breakfast at this place then we left for base village of Vasota fort trek.
