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.

Make sure you spend time in the restuarant at Jagmandir, although it has limited and expensive menu. The view and memories you'll carry will justify every penny spent.

The lake is huge and offers a beautiful view of the surrounding hill range, city palace, Taj palace hotel. But dont expect a lake with pristine blue water, the water is dirty at the banks.

There is no need for you to book in advance because no sooner the agency has requisite no of passengers, the ride commences. You may hire the boat even with lesser number of people. regards Naveen Mishra
