Being located on the banks of the Koyna reservoir outdoor activities in Tapola are predominantly water based. Boating in Tapola lake is very popular along with the water activities organized at the Shivsagar Boat Club.
A trip to Kas plateau could be coupled with a trip to Thoseghar waterfalls. The waterfalls, Sajjangad and Kas Plateau would make a good one day trip itinerary if you are planning a long holiday at Palvi Lake Resort.
Another one day trip from Tapola could be Mahabaleshwar Panchgani and Wai. While Mahabaleshwar and Panchgani need no itroduction at Wai you can visit the numerous 'ghats' temples and Dhom dam.
