💎 Tapola is a beautiful place situated on the banks of the Koyna river. It is a lesser-known place and can be also marked as a Gem. It is around 20-23 kms ahead of Mahabaleshwar. People tend to stay in Mahabaleshwar and due to this Tapola is less crowded and more beautiful than Mahabaleshwar. There are many Agro farms which offer food and stays at very cheap prices but not disappointing on their service. I’d say its a must-visit place.
Time: Tapola is around 6 hours ride from Mumbai.
Distance: Mumbai – Tapola is approx 300 kms.
Tips for Tapola
There is only one petrol pump in Tapola which was also out of service when we had visited so it’s better to fuel up in the Mahabaleshwar market.
