Wali Tangi Dam is a small dam in the Urak Valley in Balochistan province of Pakistan. It is situated approximately 20 km east of Quetta at an elevation of approximately 8,350 ft.

Wali Tangi Dam was constructed by the Pakistan Army[1][2] in the early 1960s[3] with the purpose of supplying clean water to the Urak Valley and Quetta for irrigation and human consumption. The dam stores and utilizes fresh water from melting snows in the surrounding Zarghoon Hills, which are part of the Sulaiman Range.
