Khodala Travel Guide

Khodala, a captivating village with a quiet and calm atmosphere, is placed at an elevation of 1800 feet in the Thane district of Maharashtra. This is a thick woody place in hilly surroundings and is really a bewildering picnic spot to roam in. Khodala still maintains the traditional values and rites of its own. Damned with rocky terrain and wonderful environment, Khodala imparts an unusual feeling of being out in the wilderness.

Though Khodala locates near to Mumbai, it is a less discovered holiday spot. A traditional tribal village, dwelt mostly by tribal population, unaffected by modernity gives a clear characterization of the rural Indian culture. The attire of the tribal people needs a peculiar mention. Tribal dance and music observed throughout the night in special occasions is a major attraction to any of the visitors. Animal sacrifice which dated back to the Vedic Ages is still exercised by the natives of this rustic hamlet.

A visit to Khodala extends a wonderful experience of adventuresome sports like trekking, mountain climbing, waterfall rappelling. The Amala Wildlife Sanctuary that domiciliates an array of rare reptilians and other variety of the animal kingdom is a mythological place for a stopover. The dense forest around Khodala is a haven of beautiful birds. One can even spot a mythological tiger in this astonishing wilderness.

Other major attractions in Khodala include Vaitarana Lake, Tringalwadi fort and the Igatpuri-Kasara ghats. Khodala with all its natural cherishes is a stimulating place to explore the calm beauty of nature. An astonishing hilltop circumvented by brilliant topography, Khodala is an advocated place for those holidaymakers who need bounce from the boring busy city life.
