Its famous for the sunset time so try to reach there around 5 PM in Winter and 6:30 PM in Summer. In Monsoon reach any time 🙂
While returning, In my life I have first time got chance to see nocturnal bird on the road from 6 feet distance in front of Car. Yes it was the NightJar Nocturnal Bird (નિશાચર પક્ષી). The villager said its common to sight this bird here so everyone can get chance to see it if comes in night or early morning. So please be slow in driving the car to save this bird.
Then near the village, we have found Tetar which is commonly appear in the villages.
We spent around 1 hr and it was refreshing to explore the unexplored. Must visit while you visit Shamlaji or Udaipur, you will not regret.
