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.

I fell in love with Lake Pichola, spending many hours on the terrace of our hotel just gazing at the water, birds, small boats sailing across and the majestic Taj Palace in full view. Not to be missed and worth booking a hotel overlooking the lake.

Lake Pichola truly gave me a feeling of Venice in India. Lake Pichola is a large fresh water lake having several islands. The islands have temples, palaces and also hotels. Green hills can be seen at a distance on one side of the lake. Flat plains on the either side. Truly a scenic place. Boat ride facility is available in... More

The lake is very vast and gives superb views of the palace. It is a very clean lake, the boat ride 400 Rs was very enjoyable... The boat ride has a stop over at Jag Mandhir palace , which also was very a beautiful one , well maintained and gives fantastic views and experience....

Lake Pichola is a beautiful lake. You can do boating, sit by the side of it, see sunset, have lunch or dinner in one of the roof top or any other restaurant by the lake. There are two options to go boating - one from City Palace which takes you to Jagmandir Hotel and back and other outside City Palace... More

Lake Pichola is just gorgeus at every hour of the day. You can go for a boat ride and enjoy the view from so many angles. You can see and imagine how marvellous it should have been at the time of the marajas and the royals family's. Is and enchanting place.
