Super Chuwa Khola Hydropower Project (80MW)


Super Chuwa Khola Hydropower Project (SCKHEP) is a peaking run-of-river (PRoR) type hydro project. Chuwa Khola, tributary of Karnali River, flows in the Humla District of Karnali Province has a huge potential for hydropower development due to its terrain and hydrology. Super Chuwa Khola Hydropower Project lies in Humla District in Karnali Province of Nepal. The capacity of the project is 80 megawatt (MW). 


The project area can be accessed through Simikot, the headquarter of Humla District, which is to be accessed from Kathmandu by about 1-hour flight to Nepalgunj followed by another 50-minute fight to Simikot or 601 km drive to Surkhet followed by half hour flight to Simikot. From then, a motorable road is connected upto confluence of Chuwa Khola. Then, a trail road is continued up to the proposed both headwork’s area.

Alternatively, the Project Site can be reached in almost 5 days from Kathmandu. Which is accessed by approx. 752 km long black-topped road from Kathmandu via Prithivi Highway, East-West Highway, Ratna Highway, and Karnali Highway) up to Manma Bazaar of Kalikot.
