Sounds interesting? Of course, it must be! And this especially stands true for the regal city of Udaipur in Rajasthan. Offering a romance-filled ambience, monsoons in Udaipur accompanies cool breeze and little hide and seek of grey clouds that play around its royal palaces.
Whether you are rowing around the lovely Jag Mandir or staying at a luxury resort in Udaipur, the city oozes an exceptional charm during monsoons.
Wish to make the best out of your Udaipur vacation during rainy season? Here are some sought-after locations you must look out for.
The lovely Monsoon Palace
Popularly known as the Sajjan Garh Palace, this royal paradise happens to be amongst the prime attractions of Udaipur. Once, a summer retreat of Britishers, this palace is now a touted tourist location. Located at a hilltop and approximately around 3100 feet from the sea level, the palace offers an unparalleled view of the city of Udaipur. Imagine, what amazing view you can view from the top of this palace when the soft showers of Monsoon rains are drizzling over the entire city?
A boat-ride at lake Pichola
Now, rowing a boat during monsoon season may come across as a stupid idea but trust us, it would be worth witnessing the misty patchwork of clouds and rain drizzling down on Lake Pichola. If you are a true lover of nature, you will love being here during the monsoon season. Surrounded by Jag Mandir, City Palace, Taj Hotel and other top hotels in Udaipur, a boat ride in lake Pichola will give you a serene view of all these places during monsoon.
Explore the real gem—the city palace!
Perhaps, this is amongst the best places to visit in Rajasthan. Built some 400 years ago, this grand palace houses a lush-green garden that expands up to a courtyard and its beauty is certainly much more enhanced over the season. Its Rajasthani and Mughal interiors are a sight to behold. Also, you will also get to witness the breath-taking view of the lovely lake Pichola.
Hold on to the local flavour at Raas Leela palace
If there is a lingering desire in you to indulge in local flavours of Udaipur then Raas Leela palace, located near Lake Pichola is a perfect place to be. Satiate your taste buds on some local flavours and specialities to have a true experience of lovely monsoon season. This palatable restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating arrangement. Though, you can order any kind of cuisine here but the one you should not miss out on is the toothsome Rajasthani cuisine which you would relish even more during the monsoon season.
