Tapola and Venna Lake
Tapola Lake, a backwater of the Koyna Dam, is a good place to go boating. So is the pretty Venna Lake, surrounded by trees on all sides. Both of these lakes offer a tranquil experience thanks to their luscious greenery and clear waters. Boating is quite fun, and visitors can also take in a stunning sunset while watching local birds soar over the glassy surface of the lake. The lake and the surrounding greenery make for some beautiful photos. With birds diving into and out of the water, Venna seems to come alive in the evenings.
