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

We stayed close to Lake Pichhola. The view in the evening is beautiful with all the lighting lamps on the ghat and at the heritage hotels. It looks serene and amazing. During the day time, one can go for boating and simply can have a closer view to the Lake Palace and Jag Mandir. An ideal place to be at.... More

Very nice place for boating. Speed boats are available but the time given is less. Enjoyable for boating lovers.

I would suggest the travelers to spend some time at Lake Pichola. This is a beautiful lake and use the boat services to have a round trip of around 20 minutes. There are various hotels in and around the lake and that adds to the scenic beauty.

We saw the sunset from our boat in Lake Pichola, one of the best in the world. Its best to take a boat tour around 6 - 7 PM.

Boat ride in the evenings a must. View of shimmering lake palaces, jag mandir is enchanting. But on the lake front, we could not get even chai. It would be nice to have good drinking water, nice toilet and clean snack bars while we wait for our turn to get into the boat.

Well worth it, the boats are covered to protect you from the sun, you get a 40-min scenic tour of the lake and will see Lake Palace of Octopussy fame, the shoreline with the Palaces and waterfront buildings and the Ghats. You will also land and explore Jagmandir Island Palace, a very well kept and attractive site. Hard to believe... More

Take boating pass from City Palace (try to avoid it from Lal Ghat) which will provide you and hour of dream ride with a half an hour stay at Jag Mandir. Watching sunset from boating is the most amazing experience. This is the main lake among three artificial lakes in Udaipur. To get a bird views of these lakes you... More

Great scenic view in night. The lake is surroundings and the several islands within the lake have been developed over the centuries, with palace, hotels, family mansions and ghats. These are now converted into a heritage hotel and in the middle of the lake also called the Pichola Palace or Jag Nivas located on the Jag Island. The City Palace... More

We took the boat tour. Relaxing and beautiful seeing all major monuments of the city from inside the lake. However, the driver of the boat is not a guide so if you want one you must book separately.
