Located in the countryside of Udaipur, Pipaliya is a small village roughly 20-25 km from the central city.

What to relish in Udaipur in Monsoons?
This is the most relished thing when it comes to snacking around at Fateh Sagar. You will find some stalls and vendors selling sweet corn and corn cobs roasted on coal which gives a superb flavor and fragrance to the corn.
When we talk about rains, Pakode and Chai is a must. It is somewhat a staple in the monsoon season. ‘Aloo-Pyaaz ke Pakode’ with green chutney is what we crave for.
There are various small and big outlets which give unmatched bread-Bada or Bread-Pakoda in Udaipur, and seriously they are a must try.
Well, for people who are chai-holic like me, tea is an inseparable part of the life. Chai can be called as the National Drink of India. Call it whatever, but Chai has the most significance during rains. When clubbed with Samosas it becomes an undeniable combo!
