Destination Tilayia Dam

Exciting, lovely, Outstanding...

We visited Tilayia Dam on last 16-02-09. We stayed at Barhi which is 26 KM from the dam. By our own we, the 15 boys from Bishnupur, West Bengal, started for Tilayia at 2pm and reached there in 40 minutes. It is not only a dam but also 3 Hydrol projects are here, which product 350 Megawatt power everyday. The most attractive thing is the deep blue water of the dam. You are compelled to stare at it with wonder. It can easily be resembled with the deep blue water of the beaches of Western countries. We hired a machine-boat for Rs. 300 and roamed along the water for about 2 hours. The boatman was really a gentleman. He took us to the islands in the dam. We got down from the boat and enjoyed the beauty of them. One of them was of ivory-white colour, one deep black in which a big tree stood to welcome us. We took tiffin with us and had it sitting beside the rippling waters of the island. Later we got down and saw the Hydro-projects though we were not allowed to enter the area. The coloured-stone-design beside the path towards the rest house is an another attractive thing of Tilayia.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: There's nothing special for food at Tilayia but there are some tea shops. The tea was of course very tasty.

Activities & things to do: First of all you have to take tickets from the counter, which cost Rs. 5 each. Then you must have to hire a machine-boat or a speed boat to roam about. Don't forget to take some snacks with you as it must be a matter of great enjoyment taking them while rushing along the water.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Stay in any hotel at Barhi or Hazaribag and hiring a car from there start straight for Tilayia.

Koderma Overview

Koderma is a town located in the district with the same name in the state of Jharkhand. Koderma district was formed in the year 1994 in the Chotanagpur plateau from the larger district of Hazaribagh. The region of Koderma shares its geographical boundary with the districts of Bihar and Hazaribagh on the eastern and southern part.

Koderma is popular for the massive mining works that took place here earlier as well as at present and it was because of this the place was earlier known as the mica capital of the country. Koderma is considered as the commercial capital and a major centre of trade because of the intense mining activities conducted here.

Koderma is popular for its dense forest cover around the region and the adventure sports that are organised here. The popular attractions located in Koderma include the artificial reservoir of Tilayia Dam that provides opportunities of boating.

Dwajadhri hills nearby, is the place that consists of the world’s tallest Shiv Ling, and is known by the name of Har Har Dham. Other attractions in Koderma include the Satawagan waterfall in the dense forest area, which is under the authority of the Koderma Forest Reserve.

There are three main seasons in the region with very hot summers and equally extreme winters. Koderma receives heavy rainfall with the advent of monsoons in the months of June, July, August and September, thus, making travelling here very difficult during this season. Winters are the best time to visit Koderma.

Koderma has good connectivity with local buses running between different regions. Koderma has its own railway station and trains here connect different destinations like Indore, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi, Patna, Jammu, Ahmadabad, Old Delhi and Bhubaneswar. Auto and taxi services are available at the train station.
