Know More about this tour
You would see the shimmering reflections of the palaces, temples, havelis in the many lakes of Udaipur, which thrives as much in its regal glory as in the narrow lanes of its busy streets. Hailed as “Venice of the east”, for its natural and artificial fresh water bodies, Udaipur sports the Aravalli hills in the backdrop with lake Pichola meandering around the vibrant, the ancient, the antique and the nouvelle. As you go on a biking tour of Udaipur, there is a lot to explore and discover.
When you start your early morning biking expedition at 6:30am, you may hear a temple bell ringing or the boatmen calling out to for a ride, or the jingle and clang of the trinkets of the womenfolk, about to start their day. The crack of dawn will breathe in as much freshness into you, as you set off to tour Udaipur, to reach your first stop the fatehsagar lake by around 6:45 am. The lake captures the morning glory of dawn, in a picture-perfect scene. You would feel invigorated with a cool, gentle breeze blowing in from the lake, as you set forth to “Shilpgram” , which is a village cooperative to showcase the artistry and craftsmanship of rural artisans and tribesmen. As you pass through attractive handicrafts, canvases of tribal art, you head towards Badi lake, riding through steep climbs, country roads, lush village fields, switchbacks, as you catch a glimpse of seasonal waterfalls on the way.
You reach the Badi lake at about 8:00 am. The lake is an artificial fresh water lake built by Maharana Raj Singh in the 17th century. There are three chhatris or pavilions that grace the lake. You could enjoy a short snack break near the lake and refresh a bit before you head back on your bike, through the forest route, to the city.
A city of lakes, palaces and ancient streets… here is a place where the palace trains cannot by-pass the narrow crooked lanes that are as attractive for their merchandise as the peacock mosaics of royalty. You get the best of both worlds.
