Uttarakhand is not only the Land of Gods but also the Land of Rivers and mountains. Tehri was a small town situated on the confluence of Bhagirathi and Bhilangna Rivers in Uttarakhand. This town got submerged in the water to create a large catchment area and this way the town of Old Tehri became The Tehri Lake, Asia’s largest man made lake. The town of Tehri was evacuated to make space for the Tehri dam, and the population has been shifted to the town of New Tehri.
At the time when Tehri Dam was made State Government (Uttarakhand) has decided to to convert the famous Tehri Lake into an Adventure Tourism. Tehri Lake includes many different and varied activities from Jet Skiing to Hot air ballon rides.
In the name of Adventure sports the people of our country had limited options and traveled to other places to quench their thirst of adventure, but now it is all going to change. With the rise of adventure sports in India, the Government of Uttarakhand is planning to change the famous Tehri Lake into a major Adventure tourism destination.
