Owner description: 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.

A boat trip on Lake Pichola is well worth doing, particularly in the late afternoon as the sun begins to set. The stone facade of the Palace buildings turns to a magical golden cream colour and is very memorable. We booked a 1 hour boat trip through our hotel and the boat operator was very informative and took his time to point out the important buildings and other points of interest. It was also a very good way of seeing the variety of birds that frequent the lake.

Great views from the lake, and you get taken to the beautiful hotel (the other one) at the far side. Pretty good value too.

Extremely popular tourist spot but well worth it. Sunrise and sunset over the lake were to die for. The boat ride to Jag Mandir was great.
