Udaipur, also known as the City of Lakes, is the crown jewel of the state of Rajasthan. It is surrounded by the beautiful Aravalli Hills in all directions, making this city as lovely as it is. This 'Venice of the East' has an abundance of natural beauty, mesmerising temples and breathtaking architecture which makes it a must-visit destination in India. A boat ride through the serene waters of Lake Pichola will be enough to prove to you why Udaipur is the pride of Rajasthan.
Located in a valley and surrounded by four lakes, Udaipur has natural offerings with a grandeur multiplied by human effort, to make it one of the most enchanting and memorable tourist destinations. It justifies all names ever offered to its charm from 'Jewel of Mewar' to 'Venice of the East'. And though the entire city's architecture is flattering, the Lake Palace hotel is something that offers the city a visual definition. The revered Nathdwara temple is about 60 km from Udaipur.

I visited the city of lakes on a college trip. We first went to Fateh Sagar lake, its a great place for boating and looks the best during sunset. City palace was my favourite, do keep it in your list when you visit the city. Visiting Pichola lake and the local markets was a good experience.
The Exquisite and Elegant Udaipur If you are fuelled by an incessant wanderlust, Udaipur is the place to be. Since childhood, the history subject always piqued my interest (yes, we exist). The city of Udaipur houses monuments and havelis rich in culture which also reveal the city’s historical past. A 3 nights 4 days trip is ample amount of time to explore the aesthetic City of Lakes. As exploring (not unwinding) was my main aim, I switched hotels every day to reduce travel time and tour even the uncharted tourist spots hidden in the city. You must visit the magnificent City Palace for starters, and then move on to the beautiful Lake Pichola, and then to Bagore Ki Haveli to breath in some history.
