Day-wise Udaipur itinerary for 3 days

Day 1- Arrival in Udaipur followed by a visit to City Palace and Lake Pichola

Start your day with a bang and visit the most prominent attractions in Udaipur. City Palace and Lake Pichola are two astounding places which will urge you to click those Instagram-perfect pictures. The beautiful City Palace of Udaipur is located along the banks of Lake Pichola and has an awe-inspiring architecture. You will notice the perfect combination of European and Chinese style of architecture, yet an Indian approach to it. The City Palace in itself speaks volumes of the magnificence of the Mewar Rajputs. There are a number of gardens and courtyards located within the City Palace. As the sun sets, the reflection of the City Palace on Lake Pichola will transport you to another world.

Must try: Boat ride over Lake Pichola

When you go on a boat ride over Lake Pichola, make sure you visit Jag Mandir if you have the time. Lake Pichola offers scintillating views of the Aravalli Hills and City Palace itself. Ending your day by witnessing the stunning Rajasthani sunset in the ‘City of Lakes’ is the cherry on top of your Udaipur 3 day trip. Gorge on a scrumptious Rajasthani Thali on your way back and spend the night at your hotel.

Day 2- Visit Kumbhalgarh Fort and Ambrai Ghat

While exploring Udaipur, not visiting Kumbhalgarh Fort is like an injustice to the ‘City of Lakes.’ This is one of the most-visited attractions in the whole of Rajasthan. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site which gives sprawling views of the Aravalli Hills. It is said that the Mewar ruler Maharana Pratap used the Kumbhalgarh Fort as a refuge centre during the times of war. Although some parts of the fort is in ruins, it is a must-visit place if you are an archaeological enthusiast.

Located close to Lake Pichola, Ambrai Ghat is the place to be to finish off your Udaipur 2 nights and 3 days vacation in style. Apart from offering gleaming reflections of the City Palace, this is also the ideal place to chill after a tiring day of Heritage walks. You will see a lot of young crowd around Ambrai Ghat as this is a truly picturesque location. Try out some of the mouth-watering Udaipur street food dishes from the stalls located close to the Ghat. There is no way you are living Udaipur without trying out Indian chaat! Head back to your hotel and get ready for the final day of your Udaipur trip.

Must try: Boat ride over the Ghat and witnessing Taj Lake Palace situated in the centre of the lake.
