Built upon the River Ravi, the Chamera dam is situated in the Chamba district, making it one of the most important places to visit in Chamba. Chamera lake is the reservoir of the dam where the water level may rise up to 763 meters during the rainy season and 747 meters during summers.

The dam is one of the major sources of electricity generation in this region and generates around 540 MW of electricity. One of the most unique features of the place is the contrasting difference between the morning and night temperatures.

As Chamera lake has no aquatic life, it has become an ideal and favorite destination for watersports. Various water sports like sailing, paddle boating, rowing, angling, motor boating, and kayaking are offered at the lake.
