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

While Udaipur is not as well known a destination as Rajastan's capital, Jaipur, also known as the Pink City for it's rosy-colored walls, Udaipur's situation on the shores of Lake Pichhola and the other smaller lakes nearby make it a fascinating spot to spend a few days of "R+R" time - especially if you choose one of the three major...

The views in the morning and evening are soothing and one of the main treats of Udaipur. Don't miss out on renting a boat and viewing the City Palace as well as the Taj Lake Palace from the lake itself. Prices vary depending on your departure and are less expensive before early afternoon. Share to get better value. From my... More

The Pichhola lake is a amazing place, you can take the boat and see the jag mandir and spend some time there. The view of the palace is just perfect. Once you done with the boat you can go and visit the palace.

We hired a private boat in the evening. Interesting to note that the three lakes in the city are man made and have a connection via canals which helps maintain the levels in all three!! The lake is cleaned regularly and the king has his own jetty and boat. We waited in the boat to taker some sunset pictures over... More

A boat ride on Lake Pichola and candle lit dinner besides the lake in a restaurant must be one of the Top priorities when you visit Udaipur.

Shared large boat from City Palace takes you to Jag Mandir (A hotel not temple) and brings back. They charge rs.650 per person for about 15 minutes of boat ride which I think it too much. Views from the boat are amazing though. A must visit for photography fans.

The view was fabulous but the lake was closed for boating because the Boat Charter Company's contract hasn't yet been renewed
