Why Tapola is Best Place to Enjoy your Holiday

Often referred to as ‘The Mini Kashmir‘, Tapola is situated 30 km ahead of Mahabaleshwar in the Satara district. While Mahabaleshwar remains as one of the popular hill stations in Maharashtra, Tapola is currently gaining recognition for its simplistic beauty. Tapola is called Mini Kashmir because of the stunning view that the Sahyadri Hills offer of the Koyana Dam and the way the village is perfectly situated at the convergence of the rivers of Koyna and Solshi.

The Koyna Dam is one of the biggest in Maharashtra. The Koyna Hydroelectric Project is the largest completed hydroelectric power plant of India. It is a complex project consisting of total four dams of which the largest dam is the Koyna Dam. The village is known for its calm surroundings combined with pleasant weather conditions. The predominant attraction of the place is the Shiv Sagar Lake which stretches 90 km long and serves as a water reservoir to the Koyana Dam. The lake offers visitors the opportunity to take pleasure in boating, water scooter rides, kayaking and swimming.

Bamnoli: Bamnoli is situated 35 kms from Satara city. It is a very small village. This village lies on the shore of Shivsagar lake formed by Koyna dam lies the sleepy village of Bamnoli. The dense forest and the smartly shining roads washed under showers of rain make the drive enchanting. Once you reach the village the breathtaking view of expanse of the lake that spreads for hundreds of square kilometers amazes you. Shivsagar is the back water of Koyana dam. You can enjoy boating here. This place is Free from the city crowd, pollution and noise. A boat ride deep inside the lake would do wonders if you have time.There are 2-3 eateries out here but hardly offer anything to eat except Vadpav and Omlette. You will have to go back to Satara for food. Bamnoli has a great potential of becoming a tourist destination. But sadly with that there is always of risk of being spoilt with litter and garbage. The road continues further to Tapola which is 30 Kms from Bamnoli. Bamnoli and Tapola both are situated around backwaters of Koyna Dam.
