  • It's amazing to see it from every location. Situated close to Udaipur city palace and some nice resorts. Its glorious view in day or night makes it special to every tourist. Water is not much clear. Govt need to take care of it.
  • Nice location as well as awesome view. Parking available. Two type of boating available, one is normal which having approx boating time another is rocket boating having more speedy run and only for 10-15 Min. Fun in normal boating. Spend quality time during boating. Boating cost is less as compression with City Palace boating. Big lake as well as seems more dip. Crowed place in normal time also.
  • If you are visiting Udaipur to visit the city of lakes; well, this is one of the two lakes we are talking about. It's beautiful to watch, from the shore, any shore, from the middle of the lake, a temple 2000 feet above, a fort 4000 feet above. A disclaimer is in order here. The digits of heights are way out of reality. You'll be closer to the truth if you read them as high and very high
  • Amazing place to visit. And the beauty of this place is more highlighted in the night only. As there are multiple palaces situated in the lake itself. Here you must do boating to see the eternal beauty of palaces located around the Lake. And I recommend visiting theirs after 6 PM. But I think the last entry occurs at 7 PM only, so reach there between 6 PM to 7 PM
  • Beautiful lake to enjoy and spend time with family & friends. You should definitely go for boat ride in morning or evening, but evening is the best time to enjoy boating and u can also see the sunset view which is really very beautiful. There are lake side restaurants and hotels which u should visit to enjoy the candle light dinner around the beautiful lake.
