Located in the heart of the city, Pichola Lake is the oldest and one of the largest lakes of Udaipur. Pichola Lake is enveloped by lofty Palaces, temples, bathing ghats and elevated hills on all its sides. In the southern part of this lake, there is a hill that is known as Machhala Magra and one can see glimpse of Eklinggarh Fort from here. The City Palace of Udaipur broadens along the eastern banks of this lake. Built by Jagat Singh, Mohan Mandir is situated in the north-east corner of Lake Pichola. Lake Pichola comprises several islands that accompany the calm waters of the lake. The world-renowned Lake Palace is perfectly located on the Jag Island of this tranquil lake. Even the Jag Mandir, another destination of tourists, is located on an island of this lake. Above all, a trip to Pichola Lake would be incomplete with a boat ride. The pristine blue waters of the lake leave a soothing impact on the spectator. At the time sun-set, a boat ride in this lake is sufficient to enthrall anyone. « less

The Pichola Lake is located in the heart of Udaipur in close walking distance of the City Palace. Usually you go in more or less large boats along with about 30-40 other visitors a little on the side of City Palace along to turn after a short time and to take course on a small offshore island where the boat...

The boat trip around the lake made for a relaxing break from the hustle of the city. It's a bit of a walk through the palace to get to the boat launch, but the guards will show you the way. Try to do the palace trip with the lake the same day to save a few rupees. The same entry... More

I can keep writing about Lake Pichola all day and night. It is what I would describe as my childhood love. I have been going there for over 25 years now. This is where I learnt how to swim, yep unfortunately we had no access to swimming pools and this was the only way, not that I am complaining. It... More

Just out of words. very beautiful and mesmerizing. The palaces in the middle of the lake add to the beauty of the lake. Night view with the lights on the places makes it a perfect romantic view by the lakeside.

This lake is surrounded by all the 5 star properties and roof-top restaurants in Udaipur. Choose any restaurant around the lake and you'll love the view. If you want a free view, just go to a ghat (small sitting places around the lake) and enjoy the bedazzled surrounding at night. Take a boat trip for just $2 or visit a... More

This is a calm and quite place. We visited here and also took a boat ride. There are 2 options for boat ride. One is private operated which costs Rs 100 per person. The other one is operated by city palace and costs Rs 325 per person, but it takes you to Jag Mandir. Jag mandir is a restaurant+park located... More

Lake Pichola forms one of the main attraction at Udaipur. You must go for boating in the lake to Jagmandir island & grab a drink at picholi bar. Evenings can also be spent strolling or sitting by the lakeside.
