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.

We loved the boat ride on the lake. Its a spectacular place. The calm water and beautiful views of the Palace and the surrounding buildings make this place a must-see.

The lake itself is spectacular. It is also a great place to watch life as it passes you by.

From the ladies doing laundry, to the children swimming and the men fishing, and not forgetting the beautiful architecture.

A boat ride is a lovely way of sightseeing - and a great way to take photographs.

Its a lovely sight of all the structures when you take a boat trip around the lake. It is a 20 min ride but one thats worth it. Gives a beautiful views of the lake showing the City Palace, the Taj Palace Hotel, The Leela, etc. Take the boat ride tickets from the counter at the lake - costs Rs. 100 whereas taking it from the City palace comes to Rs. 300(includes Jag Mandir restaurant entry).
