New Tehri Overview

Located in the state of Uttarakhand, New-Tehri is situated at an altitude ranging between 1,550 and 1,950 metres above sea level. This destination is the district headquarters of Tehri Garhwal.

According to history, it is said that Tehri served as the capital of the princely state of Garhwal during the British period. In addition, during the 18th century, the port city of Tehri was the halting point for the ships of the East India Company.

New-Tehri came into existence after Old-Tehri was submerged in water. This was done to construct Tehri Dam. Owing to this reason, the town of Tehri, which is also known as Old-Tehri was evacuated to make space for construction of Tehri Dam. At that time, the population residing in the town was shifted to the town of New-Tehri. New-Tehri is located at a distance of around 16 km from Old-Tehri.

This region is visited by a large number of tourists every year. Tehri Dam, one of the world's largest hydroelectric projects, is one of the most prominent attractions here. In addition, the dam also has the largest man-made lake in India, Tehri Lake, which is another famous attraction.

Owing to the presence of sources of both the rivers, Ganga and Yamuna, the destination is visited by a large number of devotees every year. For this reason, there are several temples located within New-Tehri of which Devi Kunjapuri Temple and Chandrabadni Temple are among the most prominent ones. In addition, tourists can also make a visit to temples like Ragunathji Temple and Surkhanda Devi Temple.

Travelling to New-Tehri is not much of a hassle owing to the availability of flights, buses and trains. The nearest airport serving the destination is the Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun. This airport is located at a distance of around 85.8 km from New-Tehri.

Trains are also available, which are served by the Rishikesh Railway Station, located at a distance of 71.4 km from New-Tehri. Apart from flights and trains, state run buses operate from Rishikesh to New-Tehri. Being a year round destination, New-Tehri can be visited any time of the year.
