I took a trip down to the city of Lakes, Udaipur in December 2015, and I have no clue what took me so long to pen down this travelogue. Maybe the 2000+ pictures in the archive and the constant battle to decide which ones to upload and which ones to leave out!
We had a week-long trip to Udaipur, and if you go by the regular tourist itinerary, it shouldn’t take you more than 4 days to cover all the tourist attractions. But since ours was a slightly long trip, we got ample time to relax and also visit the spots which normally tourists do not visit when on a short trip. Got you all the details below. Enjoy! 🙂
Udaipur is a short 1 hour flight away from Delhi, and the weather over there is perineally hot during the day. During December, the nights were slightly nippy, but comfortable. I’d recommend taking clothes which can be layered on top of each other to keep you comfortable with the changing temperatures during the day.
Our trip began with an evening at the Saheliyon ki Baari (Courtyard of Maidens), a garden structure which Maharana Sangram Singh got made for his queen and her friends to take a stroll in in the evenings, complete with lush green gardens, a fountain amidst a lotus pool, etc. One thing you’ll notice when entering this Baari is that the fountains around the entrance spurt water when you clap around them. No idea what the mystery behind the same is, but it was fun!
