About Nepal Water Resource Portal

The Nepal Water Resource Portal provides a complete picture of Nepal’s water resources and its varied uses. It is a database of all major and minor rivers and river basins along with operational, under construction and under survey hydropower projects on these rivers. In addition, the website includes irrigation projects and groundwater level across the country, giving a spatial representation of Nepal’s water resource and its utilities.


The team working on the portal was inspired by the lack of composite information on how water resources are used or at times even exploited. This portal, therefore, provides a tool to analyze water resources and the development of a region. It uses GIS to locate the infrastructure projects on each river, within the administrative boundaries along with the salient features of those projects, bringing to light the developmental trajectory of our rivers.

Lower Hewa Hydropower Project

Bharapa,Nangeen,Phidim (Panchthar)

Lower Hewa Khola Hydropower Project (LHKHPP) (developed by Mountain Hydro Nepal Pvt. Ltd) is located in Panchthar District of Eastern Development Region of Nepal. The project is a run-of-river type in which water will be diverted from the Hewa Khola and the Pheme Khola just upstream of their confluence, by constructing concrete weir at hewa and boulder rip-rap at Pheme. The Combined design discharge of project is 14.838 m3/s with 40% probability of exceedance level will be diverted for power generation through the side intakes located at left banks of Hewa Khola and Pheme Khola respectively. This project utilizes a gross head of 178.09 m in between the intakes at an elevation of 636.09masl and tailwater level 458.00 masl. The total length of the waterways including intakes, approach canals, settling basins, headrace tunnel, penstock pipe and tailrace will be about 6039 m.
