The Tehri Reservoir (artificial lake) fills-up the Bhagirathi valley, one of the headstreams of the Ganges (India)

The Tehri Dam was (and still is) a very controversial project, as it flooded two valleys resulting in the destruction of numerous villages and a town (Tehri), all now submerged, and forced the relocation of about 100,000 people.

For more photos and info about the controversial Tehri Hydro Power project, go to the Tehri Dam & Lake photo series.
