Major Success for Pakistan, Indus River Successfully Diverted to Dasu Dam

The river is currently running via a 1.33 km long diversion tunnel that is 20 m wide and 23 m tall, as opposed to following its natural route.


As a result, work has begun on the starter dam of the Dasu hydroelectric project, which will eventually lead to the construction of the main dam.

The project’s general manager and project director, as well as a number of engineers and workers, contractors’ and consultants’ representatives, were there as the huge river was diverted.

With the completion of one of the two diversion tunnels at the still-under-construction Dasu hydropower plant in Kohistan District, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Indus River was successfully diverted (K-P).

By mid-April of this year, the 1.5 km long, 20 m wide, and 23 m high tunnel A will also be completed in order to accommodate the higher water flows during the high-flow season.

The project is an essential part of WAPDA’s aim for generating clean, green, and affordable electricity.


The 4320 MW-Dasu hydropower project will be finished in two phases, according to the plan.
