About Chamera Dam
Built up on the River Ravi, the
Chamera dam is situated in the Chamba district, making it one of the most
important places to visit in Chamba. Chamera lake is the reservoir of the dam
where the water level may rise up to 763 meters during rainy season and 747
meters during summers.
Chamera Dam is one of the major source of electricity generation in this region and generates around 540 MW of electricity. One of the most unique features of the place is the contrasting difference between the morning and night temperature. In the morning, temperature may rise up to 35 degree celsius. On the other hand, during the nights, temperature may drop up to 15 to 18 degree celsius making it cool and peaceful.
As the Chamera lake has no aquatic life, it has become an ideal and most favorite destination for watersports. Various water sports like sailing, paddle boating, rowing, angling, motor boating and kayaking are offered at the lake. You can also enjoy shikaras and houseboats at Chamera lake.
