Located at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters in the southern foothills of the Himalayas, the Upper Tamakoshi hydropower project has built a 27-meter-high concrete dam with maximum effective storage capacity of 2.2 million cubic meters. 

The UpperTamakoshi hydropower station will contribute about 1 percent to Nepal's GDP and provide a strong guarantee for Nepal's power supply, said local energy-related official.

It is learned that since the start of construction in 2010, the project has undergone multiple tests such as the 8.1 magnitude earthquake in Nepal, while the project quality has been verified. It also set a record of the longest shaft construction in Nepal.
