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.

Lake Pichola has several up market hotels on it’s shores (The Leela, The Oberoi, Lake Palace in the middle of the lake) and has the incredibly beautiful city palace looking over the lake. There is a whole lot of grandeur about the lake and clearly this is the main tourist attraction in Udaipur. It is incredibly beautiful and the memories... More

I have traveled this place with my frds 2 times in last 3 months. The best place for mediation, silence and the breeze is so refreshing that you can forget all your worries and get in this air. From this lake you can even see the jag mandir and lake place by taj. One of the best property across world.

Around this lake the city of Udaipur has prospered over centuries. Needless to say how majestic and spectacular it is. I would be focussing my review on the boat ride of the lake. There are two kinds of boat rides one can take for the lake. One through the city palace where you also get to visit the Jagmandir Palace... More

It's must to have a boatride here, we were lucky enough to have the rooftop view from our hotel as well. But like the city palace if you want to visit the nehru park, Jag Mandir you need to shell out huge cash. Which is sad.

A wonderful boat journey around the Lake gives a great view all around you and great chances of wonderful photographs. So calm and quiet, leaving the hustle and bustle back on land! Well recommended. Pop over to The Floating Palace for your lunch - go up on the roof and just admire the scenery. Enjoy!

As I am travel photographer, I was impressed by photo opportunities everywhere right from bank of the lake to boat ride, Jag Mandir & the Summer Palace (Hotel Taj )on two islands in the... More
