Update December 2009: Documentary on Mangla Dam Construction - courtesy Jeffrey McNabb
(Nicky's video hosted in 2007 on Divx is dead because doesn't host videos any more.)

Nicky has uploaded a video from 1963 when the dam was being constructed. The video was made by his grandfather. He recently posted a comment on the scenery gallery and that's where I got in touch with him. It's an amazing insight into the past! The handheld color video camera must have been the state of the art camera of 1963!

Mangla Dam:
World’s third largest earth-filled dam is only 115-km south-east of Rawalpindi. One has to turn left from Dina Town and the dam on river Jehlum is about 16 km to the east. The dam is 3,353 meters long and 116 meters high above the river bed. It is designed to store 5.88 MAF water and also used for power generation. In the centre of the dam there is a Gakkhar Fort from where one can have a panoramic view of the lake.
