   Water Sports at Pong Dam


There is great opportunity for lovers of water sports at the Pong Dam in Kangra district. The manmade reservoir of the dam is 42 km in length and 2km in width on the Beas river.

The regional water sports centre here is a pioneer in these specialized activities. There is swimming, canoeing, rowing, sailing, and water skiing- all competitive events. Training is also imparted in water safety and rescue measures.

Three levels of water sports courses are conducted here. The basic course ,intermediate course, &  advanced course.

Infrastructural facilities include a 75-bed hostel with modern facilities, a 10-suit rest house with attached toilets, hot/cold water a beautiful dining room with a capacity for 100 persons and a kitchen with storage facilities. A workshop changing room and boat-shed are on the verge of completion. An administration block auditorium and residential accommodation are under construction.

Silt deposition in Sutlej and a rush of applicants led to the shifting of the centre to its present site at the Pong Dam and upgrading of its status to that of a regional water sports centre in June 1986.

The centre is the only one of its kind in India. The sports activities are conducted and supervised by highly qualified instructors.
