So in chilly mornings of winter at 5 am and freaking 9°C managed to reach Zostel Udaipur located in chandpole which is a easy ride of 3-4 kms from udiyapole bus stand (most buses will drop you here only when you're coming to udaipur by bus).
I booked my stay prior to reaching udaipur on official website of Zostel and let me tell you if you're not much into royalty in luxury aspects in udaipur and mainly for exploring from real traveller's point of view then Zostel is your best catch, at very affordable price of just 399₹ight I got a bed in mixed dorm room. Also zostel happened to have a rooftop cafe on its terrace from where you can overlook the beautiful blues of lake pichola while sipping your hot cup of coffee! The food, our stay, luggage keeping facilities, parking facility everything was just perfect at zostel! And the best part is that even though my check in time was 11 am , Zostel provided me with a common room and bathroom as well till my check in time and even on last day after checkout time of 12pm I kept my luggage at Zostel and went on exploring Udaipur as my bus back to ahmedabad was at 11pm night.
So coming back to my day, at 8am I had a coffee with amazing views from rooftop cafe and went on to explore the city. From zostel, Fateh sagar lake is just few kms away one can go by walking as well. From there one must visit is Nehru garden located in middle of fateh sagar , one need to take a boat ride to reach this garden.
