Srinakarindra Dam

We visited Srinakarindra Dam, power station and reservoir in Kanchanaburi province, to the west of Bangkok. The dam was completed in 1980, and the power station has a capacity of 720MW. This is a beautiful and impressive part of Thailand, still largely ignored by tourists.

The huge reservoir now appears very natural.

The reservoir was formed in 1980 when the dam was completed.
