    I am sorry to disappoint you but the lake in Udaipur is just a memory now.
    Not one drop of water was visible in what once was the lake. I was there five month ago.
    Ironically the local travel agents still booked us for a romantic and suggestive "sunset cruise" on the lake!.
    But don't worry, the city is still spectacular and the Lake Palace Hotel is still as beautiful as it was the first time I saw it many years ago.
    Good luck and congratulation for your study. I visited one of these school and brought back several miniature silk painting. What pieces of art!!!

    You must have gone during a drought or dry season. I was there in winter of 1997 and there was plenty of water, and we took a night boat over to dine at the famous princely house. It may be that the lake is being restored because I believe that is is partially artificial, being contained by Rajput engineering. The water is certainly not clean because of the bathing activity in it. You could probably find a decent place to rent there for very cheap.
