danger 11000 volts - lanco hydro power project - teesta river - sikkim (india)

Adit tunnel, part of an unfinished Hydropower project in Sikkim (India)

I was able to explore the tunnel up to a point where it was flooded (the water pumps were not functionning, but there was some electric lights).­ The tunnel is obviously unfinished.­ Not sure what this tunnel is for.­ I think it maybe to drive heavy equipment to the site, like turbines for the power house, since the small mountain roads cannot be used by heavy trucks.­

This is part of a semi-abandoned unfinished Hydro-Power Project on the Teesta river in Sikkim (India).­ The project is developed by Lanco Infratech Limited.­
