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

Good place to hangout. Few restaurants along the lake side offer nice view of the lake. Then there is boating also, although bit expensive. Also lake is little dirty as you see people bathing on the sides and many throwing wastes along the shore.

The lake is huge and draws a lot of visitors....The visit to the lake can be combined with your visit to the City Palace and one can enjoy the boating there. Boating at Lake Pichola is quite expensive... More

Visiting City Palace of Udaipur? Ensure you take tickets for a quick boat ride as well, without it the tour would be incomplete. Enjoy the entire ride, the boat would take you to summer lake palace, where you may spend some good time lying down on the grassland while enjoying the breeze, get some pictures clicked, sip on some beverages...

A nice ride around the lake, pretty scenic views... calm & quiet. Spend sometime at the city palace where they take you for a short break and come back. Just hang round, click a few pics.
