As you see Fateh Sagar lake first time after driving through the city, it looks huge. Above photograph shows panoramic view of the lake from an elevated point close to the road which surrounds the Fateh Sagar Lake. The road you see above is quite busy road and gets even busier in tourist season. So it's not very comfortable walking around the lake. And as you move closer to the area from where boats can be taken and there are activities to do, you feel more uncomfortable walking as it gets very crowded there. We will talk about different kinds of activities you can do around Fateh Sagar Lake in Udaipur.   There is no Entry Fee to visit Lake Fateh Sagar. The timings of Fateh sagar lake are from 8am till 6pm.  Boating can be the best way to take a quick tour of Lake Fateh sagar, although it depends on your own style or exploration and time in hand. There are many boating stations on the Fateh Sagar lake and you can make your own choice.

Vivekanand Memorial park is a decent place to spend some time around a small green park. Just around the Fateh Sagar Lake, there is a circuit house a small green park to sit around to enjoy lake views. While walking around the lake, we found this more peaceful hence spent some time sitting around this place. There is a small walk around this part of the Fateh Sagar Lake.

While going back from Fateh Sagar Lake to Lake Pichola, we took a walk. On our way there was a part of lake Pichola which was relatively dirty and not that well maintained. Although not 100% sure if this considered a part of Lake Pichola. When you walk, you are almost walking around the lakes to reach main part of Udaipur where City Palace and Jagdish temple is. Above photograph shows the part of Lake Pichola which is close to Fateh Sagar Lake.

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 water bottles in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem. In plains, refill your bottles with RO at hotel.   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 or jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite.
