The biggest hydro power plant producing electricity in the world deserves a visit. The visit can take one to the depth of the construction, plant control, and amazing sight seeing of the damn and the lake.

Actually I am an engineer that worked in the power industry in Canada. The Special Circuit tour shows you equipment inside the plant. I was surprised that they showed us the control room and I also got to see the turbines, cable runs and other items. Since I was the only English speaking person that asked for this tour, I got a private tour. The tour guide was pretty good but couldn't answer very technical questions. However, I saw enough and really enjoyed it. I'm not a famous engineer either! You can buy the tickets for the Special Circuit at the visitor's center.
