Udaipur - Oct 2011

Our last stop was at beautiful, beautiful Udaipur with its picturesque lakes, majestic palaces and surrounded by the Aravalli ranges (apparently the oldest mountain range in the world - according to the guides at Ranthambore). This was definitely the best amongst the 3 (had we spotted a tiger, Ranthambore would have made it to the top spot!) and we had the loveliest time here. Our hotel was right by the Lake Pichola and had excellent views of the City Palace, the Lake Palace and many other 5 star hotels. The restaurant had jharokhas facing the lake and had a very relaxing, regal and romantic atmosphere. Our first night at Udaipur also happened to be Diwali and we had the best view of the lights, lamps and the fireworks from the terrace. We did the usual sights but also relaxed a lot at Udaipur. The kids loved the hotel too and spent a lot of time on the jharokha playing video games and generally staying out of our way! Ah Bliss!! :)
