Lake Pichola Tours
About Lake Pichola, Udaipur
Whether it is Lake Pichola’s natural beauty that has inspired the splendidness of the palaces surroundings or if it is the palaces that enhance it is a question worth pondering about. Well, either way it doesn’t change the fact that this whole place is simply stunning. Created in 1362 AD, Lake Pichola is a fresh river water lake which was named after the nearby Picholi village. Pichola lake is infact one of the reasons why Udaipur is known as the city of lakes adorning India. Take a boat ride on it and you will actually traverse through the vignettes that dot the bewitching landscape of Udaipur. Pichola Lake’s stunning beauty infact tempted Rudyard Kipling to mention it in his Letters of Marque (1899), "If the Venetian owned the Pichola Lake, he might say with justice, "see it and die".
The lake is a real treat due to the amazing buildings that dot its bank. The four islands within the lake house heritage hotels and temples. The City Palace, the Jag Niwas (which has been turned into a Hotel) and the Gangaur Festival which is celebrated on its banks is just one of the many things that make tourists flock towards this serene spot.
Constructed and Used to aid irrigation for the surrounding areas, the lake had recently become dangerously polluted but great effort has been taken to restore it to its old self. A boat ride across the lake as you admire the many relics of an era gone by is sure to please any tourist.

Nice hotel, on d lake side. Access by car is difficult since roads r very narrow in this part
"Location of this Hotel is just AWESOME". Very clean hotel, Rajasthani decor, big spacious rooms, windows open towards lake pichola, which is just adjoining. Best part is the rooftop restaurant "Upre", Dinning here is Unforgettable and lifetime experience.
The food was amazing and the view was beautiful! Definitely a one time go thing.
Amazing location. Beautiful rooms. Only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I am comparing the cleanliness to U.S. hotels, which maybe isn't fair to do.
We liked the room and the ambience. It is one of the old lakeside properties converted into a hotel. Rooftop restaurant was awesome and view of city Palace was beautiful.
