Udaipur is the city of lakes. Ten, to be exact. Touristically interesting ones include Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake and Udai Sagar (literal translation: sagar = lake).
The lakes make Udaipur a cooler place to escape the Rajasthani summers. Below are my favorite lakes.
While Lake Pichola is gorgeous blue and green in the day, it is a completely different sparkling wine and romance vibe under a waning moon in the perpetually clear night skies of Udaipur. Although Pichola houses the revered Lake Palace, my personal favourite is the Fathesagar Lake.
Lake Fateh Sagar
A scenic, quiet feature of Udaipur, Fateh Sagar is a 50 Rs auto Rikshaw ride from the main market. A local lover’s haunt, the lake houses a garden island, known as Nehru Park. Canoeing and kayaking camps have been started at Lake Fatehsagar.
