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 distant lake view is okay. However, the lake is quite dirty and not well maintained at all. Boat ride in this lake is not worthwhile at all. The view of the Lake Palace Hotel in the middle of the lake is nice. The local kids taking a dive and swimming in such a dirty water was quite an astonishing... More

Excellent. The view of Lake is awesome from City palace. . A boat ride would be worth going if you are ready to spend some 400-500 bucks per person. The lake was clean and looked beautiful.

Beautiful and clean lake. Loved boating in it. There are only private boats, monopoly of the palace management due to which boat ride ticked PP costs around Rs 450, except that the experience is mesmerizing and a must for all.
