Tehri Dam, New Tehri

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains, Tehri Dam is one of the world's highest dams and the highest one in India. During the dam's construction, the project was contested by human rights activists and environmentalists, who questioned the geological stability of the structure. Despite this, the site remains one of the region's top attractions--the walk along the embankment offers scenic views and numerous photo opportunities.

  • One of the most spectacular view. You can view the dam from a height. The actual dam site is highly secured. Water sports facilities are available but one needs to have proper permissions. One of the heighest dams in India. The reservoir is significantly large. Sharing few pictures from my bike trip.
  • One of the most beautiful and marvellously build Architecture. The dam is one of the highest dams of India and the reservoir of Sam is almost spread in 42 square km area. The area is highly secured zone. The dam can be viewed from height. The difference between the two sides of dam and flood gate is quite evident.
