Koyana Dam - Tapola
 
 

The Koyna River originates in Mahableshwar. The Koyna dam - Shivasagar reservoir on it is the largest dam in Maharashtra. It is considered a feat of engineering. It provides a large amount of irrigation water and also generates electricity. The koyana dam is around 50 km in length with Koyana Nagar the South end and the Tapola near Mahabaleshwar is the north end. Tapola is bestowed by pristine natural environment with hills, waterfalls and forests very rich in flora and fauna diversity. Due to it Tapola is famously called as the Mini Kashmir. The catchment area around the Shivasagar - Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary is home to a variety of wildlife like sloth bears, leopards, dhols, barking deer, spotted deer, giant squirrels, and even tigers. Near Tapola there are many forts in the dense forest and jungle treks are very popular and magnificent.
