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 is a beautiful lake. You can do boating, sit by the side of it, see sunset, have lunch or dinner in one of the roof top or any other restaurant by the lake. There are two options to go boating - one from City Palace which takes you to Jagmandir Hotel and back and other outside City Palace... More

Lake Pichola is just gorgeus at every hour of the day. You can go for a boat ride and enjoy the view from so many angles. You can see and imagine how marvellous it should have been at the time of the marajas and the royals family's. Is and enchanting place.

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.
