About Tehri Dam
One of the most prominent tourist places in Kanatal, Tehri Dam, at an astonishing height of 260 metres, is the tallest dam in India and among the tallest in the world.
The destination is flocked by travellers and adventure junkies all-year-round who engage in sports like paragliding, jet skiing, and the tourist-favourite, Banana boat ride, among others. It is also flanked by globetrotters who enjoy a unique stay offered by houseboats and floating huts built on the adjacent Tehri Lake.
Apart from being just a pretty spot, Tehri Dam also harnesses more than 1,000 MW of hydroelectricity supplied to the city, thereby serving a good purpose.
