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.

Try a boat round of the lake and enjoy massive palaces and heritage sites inside and around... Best is the view of Taj Lake Palace

Nothing to dislike. Whole city looks so b'ful. Boat ride in the evening and the sunrise view from the rope way point are not to be missed things here.

the staff needs to be better trained. Food was good but a trifle heavy. However the staff seems as though they would like to get rid of the guests at the earliest!

It is amazing to see how much water they have in this lake...the only thing they didn't care about was keeping it more cleaner, accessible to general public and not filling up the surrounding with hotels..

Very pretty. At night, thusands and thousands and thousands of bats fly over the lake to god-knows-where. So awesome - never seen anything like it!

Everything at night is also lit up, especially the city palace which reflects magnificently into the lake. So lovely to walk around and to view from various restuarants/cable car etc.
