The 900 MW Baglihar Hydro Electric Project (BHEP) constructed on river Chenab in state of Jammu and Kashmir is one of finest examples of shear application of various departments of engineering. Lying in the mountainous and rugged terrain of the middle Himalayas, BHEP has a major impact in the generation of the power not only for the state but also for our country. Construction of such a mega project involves numerous activities, which need to be properly planned before their execution, so it is necessary to plan the sequence, construction methodology and equipment for each activity so that the project may be completed within time.This paper deals with the construction details, planning and methodology adopted for this project with special reference to the civil engineering works.
