Lake / Backwaters
At a distance of 26 km from Dalhousie, the Chamera Lake is an artificial lake situated at Chourah in Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh. The Lake is formed by the Chamera Dam on the Ravi River, which is positioned at an altitude of 1700 m. It is a major source of water supply for the villagers and is continuously fed by the Ravi River. The Chamera Hydel Electric Project, one of the main hydel projects of Himachal Pradesh, is situated nearby.
Nestled in a valley in the midst of pine forests, the lake is an excellent site for activities like fishing, angling and boating. Himachal Pradesh Tourism department has built a boat house adjacent to the lake near Taleru, which has facilities for water sports like river rafting, motor boating, canoeing, and kayaking. Other than the water sports, pedal boats and rowing boats are also available for the tourists. The Bhandal Valley and the Bhalei temple are the other tourist spots near Chamera Lake.
Chamera Lake, though located in the midst of dense forests, is well connected by roads making it easy to reach the place.
