Though the view of Pichola lake is mind bogling, the boats run by UMC are not comfortable. Even the embarkation point is not safe for senior citizens and children.

The tourists point at lake is pretty picturesquely, has locals entertaining with music and several shows. Boat rides can be purchased for different categories. Boat takes you for 20 minutes around the lake where you can see palace, temple and hotels situated in lake.

we took a boat near city palace to jagmandir and way back. Lake Pichola is surrounded by old heritage buildings and restaurants. Carry hats or stoles in summer or spring. Best time to visit 4-7 (sunset). Avoid having food from Jagmandir restaurant.
