New Tehri is the only planned township in the hills of Uttarakhand, which was constructed to relocate the people who were earlier living in the villages in valley below after the construction of Tehri Dam. New Tehri has all the basic civil amenities and can be easily accessed from all the other states of India.
Located at an altitude of 1550-1950mts above the sea level, New Tehri provides you with an excellent view of the mighty Tehri Lake formed by holding up the water of Bhagirathi River by the strong 265mts high Tehri dam. Who would not like to see a 265mts high waterfall, the sound of the river when the floodgates of Dam are opened can be compared to thousands of flying Boeing Jets.
The Tehri Lake is also being turned into a spot for adventure tourism. The state government has drawn out elaborate plans to make New Tehri an Adventure Tourism Destination. Jet skiing across the lake from one mountain range to other seems fun to you? If yes, then this place should be on your bucket list.
The main center for the adventure sports is being created at Koti Colony some 20kms from New Tehri, which will hold all the official and administration of the proposed Adventure sports.
