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.

My friend and I took a boat trip around the lake. It was great to see a different side to the city of Udaipur, and to get up close to some of the waterside buildings. Despite the rain it was still a lovely experience and reminded me of trips I've had to some of the Italian lakes. A definite must... More

We found a peaceful spot next to the Bagore Ki Haveli to spend some time by the lake. My baby daughter found a friend to play with. It was a perfect evening, a peaceful evening with a amazing sunset in the background.

Amazing boat ride with so many royal and beautifully carved buildings all around! Very neatly maintained. Also, was pleasantly surprised how this activity is still quite non-commercial

This lake is one of the major tourist attraction, and a must visit. Go for a motor boat ride and experience the lake better. There are some good restaurants around, that can be explored too.

Lovely lake reminds be a bit of Europe where is it built up around waterways. We booked a boat ride on the lake however we cancelled it due to bad weather. We did not reschedule it as after a day out walking and sightseeing we felt we had seen most of it. Boat rides at sunset seem very popular. Make... More

Serene.. peacefull is what you will experience when you visit the lake. The boat rides to see Jag Mandir and the Lake Palace is a bit costly, but worth it if you want a close look at these monuments.

The view of the lake with the backdrop of the hills all around the place with palaces located on the banks and some in the lake ...calm and serene ..without much noise around...treat to watch and worth spending some time...but the cost of the boat ride for few metres on the lake did not seem worth to me..better just watch...

Lake pichhola situated by city palace in Udaipur(Rajasthan). Boat ride in evening is a speechless experience and certainly better than smelly gondola ride in Venice. Shining Jag mandir and lake palace in this lake enhance your enjoy.
