Located in the north of Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake lies just besides the entrance to Moti Magri Hill. Built in 1678 by Maharana Jai Singh, Fateh Sagar Lake got its name from Maharana Fateh Singh, who later made additions to it.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq shares, Lake Pichola was built by nomadic gypsies in 1362 who were tribesmen during the period of Maharana Lakha and they were encouraged by the King for this water harvesting. Udaipur city and the grand history of the buildings, palaces, temples, and fortification attract more tourists, the lakes and the beautiful garden surrounded by the Aravalli ranges, extremely pleasant. ”

It's not the waterfall which attracts us but the scenic combination of forests and little streams surrounding the waterfall are also to be mentioned.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ravishanker Vasanthaiah shares, “There is security around the falls and visitors are not allowed near. But though they can enter thewater at a certain location where it's safe. There is a shop where they sellwater and snacks. One can also travel from Kochi to reach this place.”

The sunlight shines on these marble white rocks and casts shadows on the serenewaters....a little distance away, it becomes turbulent. Here it cascades into a mightywaterfall, called 'Dhuandhar'.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Zenobia Tamboli adds, “If you want to enjoy the sheer beauty of India's second highest falls, then go between July and September to witness it. 4 cascades collectively called Jog (literally means Falls in Kannada), these are a sight to behold in the monsoons and immediately thereafter. Lush green environment, a very cool climate, the roar of the falls, excellent KSTDC accommodation at the Sharavathi blocks right opposite the falls, the perfect combination for a short monsoon getaway. ”

HolidayIQ Reviewer kalpana patangia says, “As we were in Jog falls during the rainy season, we had to face drizzles and wait for glimpses of the falls to be seen between drifting clouds. But the scenery was excellent. Even if we did not see all the four sections of Jog falls at the same time, we could hear the roar of water falling down.”
