They call Tapola mini Kashmir and Bro! They don't kid. The place is all beauty. I was in love with it from the very first second. It has got this oddly soothing vibe. The stream is clear and totally favourable to jump in and feel the cool water washing the stress away. Kayaking there was nice. Trekking was awesome. Bullock cart ride was absolute fun! I really enjoyed every bit of it. All thanks to Thrillophilia!

Amidst beautiful scenery and the lake, the camping was a refreshing experience. The tents were perfectly arranged. When we visited the temperature was around 40 degree. Nights were better. We did kayaking on the lake. That was the best activity. Guides were cordial and friendly.
