One of the other most popular activity to do during sunset at Lake Pichola is boat ride. Depending on your budget & preference, you can join a tour with other people or hire a private boat to cruise around the lake.  Sunset boat rides are especially popular in Udaipur and offer peaceful experience looking out over the mountains and admiring beautifully lit havelis, hotels, restaurants & bars. These boats also take you close to the Taj Lake Palace Hotel and you have the choice to stop for a drink on Jagmandir Island. Keep in mind that this place is pretty expensive, so do make your mind accordingly.   These boats are available from some of the stunning ghats around Lake Pichola.

If you staying in Taj Palace, they have a grand boat with very good setup on the deck for sunset ride around the lake, which live music in the boat. We saw one of these boats of Taj Palace from our hotel terrace and that whole experience looked interesting. I am sure that must be equally costly.

Ambrai Ghat is one of the most popular spots to watch the sunset in Udaipur and that too for free, as there is no entry fees for this place. It's not that easy to find free things in Rajasthan as this state knows very well how to leverage tourism opportunities & encash as possible offerings.  You will often find several locals and tourists gathered here for the end of day. Since it's pretty open area around Lake Pichola, it doesn't look crowded even when so many people gather here before Sunset.   Just after sunset lights of City Palace are also switched on and you can see beautiful views of those lights reflecting in Lake Pichola from same place.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -   1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter Use dustbins. 2. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite.
