For us, second day started with heavy rain so we just went to the restaurant on the top of the hotel and sat there for three straight hours. We listened to some really old songs and had brunch.
Has anyone else noticed that rain brings out some really great conversation topics or is it just us?
We left our hotel at noon, bought raincoats and drove straight to monsoon mahal.
Monsoon mahal/sajjangarh is situated at a top of the hill overlooking lake pichola. Again, the best part about reaching it is the drive to the top of the hill. You can either drive to the top or book a Jeep at the the entrance at 100rs/person. There is nothing much to see in the mahal but there is lot to see from the top of the hill. You can see the entire Udaipur. We sat in the cafe there for I don't even remember how long. We also watched sacred games there. Trust me, best feeling ever- Netflix and chill at the top of Udaipur😁
Then we went to karni mata temple which is at a peak of the hill and to reach there you can either trek or take a ropeway. It's a 300 meter ropeway. But I have never been in a ropeway before so it was one of my firsts and I truly enjoyed it.
In the evening, we went to the gangaur ghat. We met some cool college goers, jamming there and playing covers of Arijit Singh's songs and old Bollywood songs. Those kids made our evening. We kind of just zoned out there for a while, each in his own thoughts.
We then retired for the evening after a long eventful day to catch our flights back to the reality.
Udaipur is a great place for a laid back weekend. If you intend to have a change of scenery and enjoy a slow weekend, it's the place for you.
