It takes aproximately 30minutes to reach this place by car. On 25th August 2013, me, Mr. Vijendra Singh Parmar and Mr. Mudit Sharma went biding for the at around 6AM in the morning and reached there by 6:30AM.

On way back, we saw Common Hoope, Grey Francolin, Little Egret, Little Cormorant at Badi lake. Also, we saw Indian Stone Curlew, River Tern, Spotbilled Duck, and waders like Purple Moorhen, White Brested Waterhen at Fateh Sagar Lake.

We failed to see White Napped tit though! It was very refreshing birding trip after many days in Udaipur during monsoon. We enjoyed the scenic beauty a lot!
