Description: Pichola Lake is one of the most beautiful and picturesque lakes of...
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.

One of the biggest lakes in Udaipur. Water was overflowing to road at the time of our visit. The lake was clean and is one of the main source of supply of water to the city.

Do not miss this... You may choose to take a boat ride. Afternoon before 3pm is cheaper, a little on the higher side but sunset boat ride is awesome.

Magnificent views of mountains and greenery all around. We had a boat ride in this beautiful lake which takes you to Jag Mandir and returns you back to the lake, you can get the tickets at the city palace, the price differs during the the morning and after noon, it's around 400 Rs in the morning and around 750 Rs...

Great view at the lake. The only drawback is people visiting the place are not keeping the place clean and too much wastes is lying everywhere. Else the place and view is great.

Dusk time is the best time to go boating as you get to see the historical buildings in partial day light and also well illumed in dark and also you can catch the distant sun set over the mountain ranges, if you take a private boat it would be a perfect romantic ride
