New Tehri

Being the only planned city there, New Tehri is one of the top places to visit in Kanatal. Home to the Tehri Lake and Dam, the city prides itself in owning one of the largest hydroelectricity projects in the world.

The Bhagirathi and Bhilangana Rivers merge here to form the manmade Tehri Lake Reservoir, which, with its emerald colour makes for a beautiful sight. Temples like the Chandrabadni and Sem Mukhem Temple dot the city.

New Tehri is where classic meets contemporary, where at one end lies Old Tehri, submerged in water, and the other end is abuzz with water and aerial activities.


Surkanda Devi Temple

Dedicated to Goddess Durga, the Surkanda Devi Temple is a 3 km walk from the village, Kaddukhal. Legend has it that when Goddess Sati died, her husband Lord Shiva carried her body back to Kailash, which is when her head fell at the spot where the temple was then erected.

Thus, the name
Sirkandha was derived, which over the passage of time is called Surkanda. This ancient site is surrounded by lush greenery and a panoramic view of the breathtaking Himalayas!

Pilgrims from all over flank this holy spot during Ganga Dussehra and Navratri, the array of colours and lights making the celebration worth witnessing!

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. 

Location: New Tehri, Uttarakhand 249001

Even deep in the jungle, we had power back up support which made things easy for us like running to the washroom in the midnight in freezing cold. Tubelights made it easy for me.

Tents were big, proper beds, wouldn't have to lie on the floor with a sleeping bag. The food was served fresh and the trek took us to some really offbeat location.
