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 went in July so it was very hot during the day so we decided to visit lake pichola during evening. It was a good quite walk during the night. There are good restaurants nearby also. Don't have very high expectations

We booked the boat ride with trident hotel and it was a good 45 mins of evening excursion. The driver of the boat was as good as a guide, gave us lots of trivia about the lake, surroundings, buildings and history!

I was surprised to find a Yacht ride facility and book immediately as we were 4 members. The ride was of 20-25 minutes and it was pleasant. Be sure to wear life jackets.

Not for nothing, Udaipur is known as the City of Lakes! Lake Pichola is right at the top of the list. Stroll along the lake, especially close to the sunset and let the water soothe your soul. Picturesque!!
