Pichola Lake is one of the most beautiful and picturesque lakes of Rajasthan, India. 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.

Beautiful lake with all the calmness residing around the lake. Since the roads are too narrow near the lake, the setting becomes so peaceful even with all the hotels around. The lake is not so clean and the boat ride is way too expensive so better try boating in Fateh sagar lake.

We did a boat ride on Lake Pichola and stayed for sometime at Jagmandir which is on an island in the middle of the lake. It was a great experience. Good part was that the comforts of tourists were taken care of and the entire thing was well managed by the agency run by the descendants of the royal family... More

We were fortunate to have magnificent views of the lake from our room and from the rooftop of the guesthouse so we were able to witness its many moods. The dramatic spectacles of sunrise and sunset, the bustling traffic and the mesmerising light show as the palace and lake front lights came on each evening. A boat ride is a... More

The boat ride is worth it, although I was not blown away. It is good that the lake is not too commercialised.

Location gets very crowded with long waiting queues for the boat rides. The area got water logged due to the rain. Autos, cars and public spout to whole ambience of the area. Perhaps they need a one way system.

Beautiful lake, central highlight of the city. Taj Lake Palace and Jagmandir are located in the middle of the lake. There are boat rides around the lake, best to take those around sunset.
