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.

Lake pichola is situated near karni mata temple and city palace also. The boating price in this lake is Rs. 300/- per person but even you can have walk and seat quiet here. From here you have good view of lake palace.

Lake Pichola is an artificial, freshwater lake created by building dams in 1392 to meet irrigation and water needs of Udaipur, Rajasthan. It is 3-4km long and 2-3km wide, with a maximum depth of 8+metres , with an average depth of 4+metres. There are 4 islands on the lake. A must is taking a boat ride on the lake taking in temples, palaces, shrines, hovels and luxury hotels. The sunsets over the hills surrounding the lake are glorious. It is peaceful, beautiful and tranquil. World away from the madding crowds.

Main tip for fellow travellers: There is absolutely no need for booking any private tour for this visit, its a very easy access place and the tickets available and number of boats are also adequate. For more comfort take the 250/- boat tickets however the 150/- was also perfectly all right! even the walk around the lake is lovely...
