The city of lakes in the western part of Rajasthan is the manifestation of a destination no less than a dream. Walking through it feels like the word ‘royalty’ was coined in the charming streets of Udaipur. The millennia-old history is a matter of fascination amongst Indians and foreigners alike, a glimpse of which can be seen in everything native there. In Udaipur, an accommodation that calms the soul is as simple as spotting lakes, gardens, and its famous forts. However, certain activities that imbibe royalty in your very thought and nature are also available.

Everyone wants some memories of the stay in the city synonymous to grandeur, especially when you can find a natural or man-made wonder everywhere. The Saheliyon Ki Bari (Court of Maidens) is one such popular garden where photography leads to pictures on your walls forever. You do not need permission for photography here. It is the perfect spot if you’re hoping to do a shoot for your brand/client with some royal gardens in the backdrop. Of course, there are several Havelis as well, but you’ll have to check if photography is allowed.
Eat like a Queen
Rajasthani cuisine is particularly spicy, yet delectable. Even the humblest restaurants, cafes, and roadside stalls offer food that cannot be resisted. Don’t forget to try the Mewari curries that are known for their strong flavors and spices being used sparingly. For the highlight, you must try the Laal Maas, which is a traditional Rajasthani non-vegetarian delight. The red meat (mutton) is slowly cooked in red chili and exotic herbs and can be found at virtually every restaurant. You may find the royal experience you’re seeking dining at a restaurant next to Lake Pichola.
Stay in Style
The stay in Udaipur is what makes or makes the experience. The way to getting the best of it in Udaipur is staying on or next to a lake. You can be sure of an experience like no other at The LaLiT Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur situated next to Fateh Sagar Lake. The hotel is constructed in an image of royalty. Choose from the Maharaja, Maharani, or Princess Suites that offer space, regal furniture and a service that will make you feel like nobility. Moreover, it won’t burn a hole in your pocket as compared to other options on and around lakes.

The view of the city from a height is simply incomparable as it reveals all the humble rises and descents in the city’s geography apart from the lakes that are much bigger than they seem at level. Take the ropeway to the famous Karni Mata Temple. Apart from the view, the ride issues a rush that adds to the excitement inherent in the city. Nothing offers a panoramic view of the majestic city as the ropeway.
Lake Pichola is not only sight in Udaipur, but across the country. More beautiful than a sunrise, you can get a glimpse of the rich history in a flash when the sun sets on the Pichola. However, don’t wait for it on the shore; take a boat cruise on the freshwater and witness the meaning of peace as the lake glimmers with the rays of the sun. The islands on the lake that illuminate as the night begin to fall make it even better.
