The catchments area of the project is 1694 km and the elevation of catchment is ranging from about 2100 masl to 7800 masl. The powerhouse of the project will be at 1770 masl. BPC obtained survey license of Lower Manang Marsyangdi Hydroelectric Project from Department of Electricity Development (DoED) in 2009 and carried out feasibility study & EIA. EIA of the project has been approved by GoN.
Besisahar - Chame Feeder Road is a motorable track road connecting the powerhouse and the headworks areas. Geotechnical investigations has been completed and is under detail design stage and re-optimization. The designs and EIA are reviewed by various International Consultants. The Generation license has been received and connection agreement for PPA has been signed. The PPA process and project re-optimization is ongoing.
