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.

If you're coming from hectic Pushkar and you love sitting and reading around the lake - Lake Pichola can offer you good views, on certain days - less crowd and some really really nice cafes. It's a nice place to hangout and relax on your travels. Quite a lot to see around so you won't get bored.

I think its best to visit this lake in the evening as the area around is beautifully lit up! The boat ride is a joy ride and its not too short nor too long. Take in the views of Taj hotel which is in the lake and also a small temple hall is in the lake. Its a must visit... More

We were fortunate enough to be staying on the lake shore. After a busy trip around Rajasthan it is a very welcome oasis of calm. It is worth taking a boat trip around the lake, it is marvellous.

Either by sitting on the banks of the lake, rowing on the lake or viewing the lake from your suite at the Lake Palace, Udaipur it is magnificent . If you are lucky enough to be celebrating Diwali

Udaipur trip is incomplete without visiting the beautiful Pichola lake. The lake houses a number of 7 star properties and the boat ride is one of the best experience one would have.
