adits to teesta power house - tunnels entrances (india)


Adits of two tunnels of an abandoned (?) or unfinished Hydro Electric project (India)

The tunnels lead to a the site of a Power House, apparently not yet constructed.­ Google satellite images show two huge holes in the ground at the location of the Power House located at the end of those tunnel.­

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
