The size of Lake is approximately 11000km2, which was maked as a reservoir when the Kaptai dam was built during the 1960. This wonderful Lake was created by flooding valleys and plain lands between numerous hills all around the Lake. It has Bangladesh’s only hydro-electric project. The Kaptai Dam on the Karnaphuli River maked for this purpose resulted in the Kaptai Lake. This created a charming view as forested hills and plateaus rise from beneath the wonderful Lake water.
