The Hidden Lakes of Udaipur

When most people visit Udaipur, they visit City Palace and Lake Pichola, but the city of lakes has more to offer. North to Pichola lake is Fateh Sagar Lake where locals gather around in the evening to catch the sunset. Another fantastic and one of my favourite lakes in Udaipur is Lake Badi. The only company you will have around will be monkeys. You can even climb up
to a point to enjoy the amazing sunset and get a panoramic view all around. Best way to discover your favourite lake in Udaipur is to just hop on a bike and travel around the city.
