Chamera Dam constructed on the river Ravi, is considered to be the lifeline of the state. Situated at a distance of 35 km from Dalhousie, this place supports the hydro electricity projects of the region. One of the unique features of the lake is its fluctuating temperature. The absence of aquatic life in the lake, makes it ideal for water sports like rowing, paddle boating, motor boating, sailing, canoeing, angling and kayaking. Moreover, the government of Himachal Pradesh also provides house boat rides and shikaras in this region.
