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.

We visit the lake in the evening. scenic beauty around the lake was awesome. But boat ride in the evening was quite expensive. It will cost you around Rs. 700 in the evening which I found very high.

I would recommend travelers to add this to their to do list in Udaipur. You can get the best scenic views from here especially during sunset.You do boating in this lake and click great picture or just chill around with family, friends and enjoy weather. THere is nothing more you can do here.

Spectacular. The best view is if you take boat ride from city palace to Jagmandir. If you go before 3pm, tickets are cheaper. You can of course get a good view from Lake Palace, Jagmandir Or Ambrai.
