The very fact of Pong Dam being vast in the area is a major attraction for tourists as well as for the migratory birds. Birds from trans-Himalayan regions flock here during winter in huge numbers. The depth of the dam being up to 180 feet during the rainy season makes it a rich ground for fish to grow aplenty. Thus, angling and fishing have emerged as a thrilling adventure sport.
