A strenuous drive on a practically undrivable road will lead you to "Jaldhaka Hydel Project" at Bindu, on reaching where the first thing which comes on mind is - "Alas !! Did I see the mirror while waking up today morning ???" Absolutely a waste of time, money, effort and energy. Not at all worth the pain. Strongly avoidable.

The dam is located in the upstream of river Jaldhaka. In between jungle and mountains it is beautifully located. One can spent 2-3 hours here. It is a good tourist spot for day visiting. One can witness the roar of the river forcible stopped by the dam.
