About Hidakal Dam

Hidakal Dam was built to generate hydroelectricity and supply water for drinking irrigation in the area. The lake is an area of great archaeological interest due to the presence of precious fossils in the area. This dam is home to a number of migratory birds like the Demoiselle cranes and Bar-headed geese that fly here every year, making it a roosting site. The area around the dam is now being used to cultivate sugarcane instead of the traditional paddy and wheat crops, disturbing the feeding habits of these birds. The dam is a place of profound natural beauty, archaeological interest and a nature spot for bird watching and is well worth a visit.
