Since it was Mid April, it was immensely hot outside. Our car needed to cool down in the heat so we parked it under the trees at the parking of VOF and took off to the dam via Hop On Hop Off Bus. Its just 10mins away. Though you can't go upto the dam, you are dropped off at the dam and river viewpoint. For us, both River and Dam were running dry. But considering the dam controversy over the last few decades, the view and visit is worth it. Started by Jawaharlal Nehru, the dam completed only few years ago!
A little Glimpse of Sardar Sarovar Dam
Sardar Sarovar Dam - Gujarat also known as the 'Narmada Dam' because of being built over the Narmada River, it is the largest dam to have been built under the 'Narmada Valley Project'. It has power facilities of up to 200 MW and provides relief to drought prone areas of Kutch and Saurashtra.
I specially inform to tourists that this area is completely secured by army due to subject of national security.You allowed only visit permitted areas near dam. Before dam there is check post where you should compulsory take entry pass with registration. without entry pass army person never allowed you to take entry into dam view point. This is one way track where you only travel to single direction up to Narmada main canal road.During this circular trip you should keep pass with you till exit or ready to conflict with army persons. You will reached again on Gora Bridge via Kevadia Colony .
