About Tapola

Tapola famously called the mini Kashmir of the west is a rustic hamlet with a magnificent lake – Shivsagar. Tapola is at the end of the road and practically a dead end! From Mahabaleshwar, Tapola is 25 kilometers away and the drive to Tapola is a picturesque one with vistas galore on either side of the road.

Trekking near Tapola

From Tapola, the most commonly known trek is the tough Vasota fort trek. However in this adventure weekend getaway of trekking and kayaking near Tapola, we would be trekking towards the lesser known Utteshwar temple. The trek to Utteshwar temple will fill your experience with a 15 to 25 minutes boat ride to the base village and trekking 5 mountains to reach the peak. This Trek to Utteshwar temple covers longer distance than that of Vasota
