Thanda Dam (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province - Pakistan)

Tanda Dam is located in Kohat District in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It was built in 1960s near Kohat city. Tanda dam is a medium sized man-made dam to supply water and electricity to the region. 

The dam is used for irrigation, fisheries and picnic which is constructed on the water of Kohat Toi River. At Kagazi village, river water is diverted towards Tanada dam.Although most of the shoreline is steep, stony and devoid of aquatic vegetation, at the west end there are some areas of gently shelving muddy shores with a small amount of emergent vegetation

 It is the main source of irrigation to adjoining areas. Agricultural lands from Tanada dam up to Jarma and Dohda Sharif are irrigated where vegitables, weat and sugar cane are cultivated

 Tanda dam and its surrounding area  is very beautiful.
