So, I planned a trip to Udaipur and was there for 3 days and 2 nights. I had already been to some tourist places viz. Rishikesh, Haridwar, Kasol, Kheerganga etc. But after this trip I am completely spellbound by the beauty of Udaipur. In that duration, we hired two bikes and apart from me, there were 4 others to give me company. One of them is currently studying In RNT medical college, Udaipur. So, we had an upper hand unlike other trips as he knew the city way better than us and may be even better than Google.
Why Udaipur? Wanted to go someplace not so monotonous cold..And needed to keep check on my wallet as well.Another thing I kept in my mind when I planned this trip was that I wanted to see and enjoy natural beauty and adventures.
So, I am gonna write about the places we went, the mesmerizing journey and the people.
We arrived Udaipur around 9’O clock, about an hour later than the scheduled time. We started our day with lunch at Shiv Shakti Restaurant & had a good lunch in every aspect. From there we started to explore Udaipur on our bikes. Our first stop was an Open Gym situated on the bank of Pichola Lake. This was a beautiful spot with some Gym apparatus installed. After that we drove our bikes to The Celebrations Mall. As I currently live in Noida, I can say I have seen the best of Malls but believe me the way this Mall is designed is brilliant. You can see the Rajwada’s flavor added in the infrastructure. After spending some time in mall, we moved to Nathdwara Mandir. What’s new about this is the road by which it is connected. A tunnel is built through the mountains and has its own contributions when it comes to visuals. The same tunnel is on the backside of classmate notebooks nowadays. Other noticeable places to visit are Saheli ki baadi, Sukhadiya Circle and Fateh sagar lake. Fateh sagar lake puts forward equal values and visuals to the visitors as much as the Marine drive in Mumbai does. Last spot for the day was Karnimata Mandir also known as sunset point among the locals. There are two monocable ropeways that connect ground to the top. You can have a beautiful view from the top as well can see the beauty of Pichola Lake. Tourists can also have fun of boating in Pichola Lake.
Conclusion-: Day-1 was more beautiful than expected, obviously not very adventurous but soothing in a peaceful way. Around 80 kms of biking in the whole day and dinner of Dal Baati at Annapurna Dhabha brought the day to a closure.
