Udaipur City of Lake

Located in the Aravalli ranges of Rajasthan, the city of Udaipur is situated at a distance of about 405 km from the state capital Jaipur. The city is well connected through air, rail, and road to other important cities of India like Jaipur, Delhi, and Mumbai

If Jaipur is a study in pink, Udaipur is a vision in white. The City of Dawn, surrounded by the ancient Aravali Mountains and set on the edge of three lakes, is a brilliant kaleidoscope of narrow lanes flanked by bright stalls, gardens, lakes, palaces and temples.

Romantic Place

Rajasthan is a romantic place with tales of valour & chivalry & a history that brings to life forts & palaces & court intrigues. But Udaipur is different - a splash of color in colorful Rajasthan that's brighter, tinged with the tons of local legends & lores. Here are lakes that come as a surprise in sandy Rajasthan, and forested hills where wildlife still abounds. And in the lakes or by their edges are places straight out of fairy tales, each more beautiful than the other.

Reaching Udaipur

By Air

The city is connected by regular flights to Delhi, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Aurangabad, and Mumbai.

By Rail

Udaipur is on the Western Railway meter gauge network. Trains such as the Chetak Express and the Mewar Express connect it to Delhi, Chittor, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Ajmer, and Jodhpur.

By Road

Udaipur is on National Highway No. 8. Transport corporations of several states such as Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh operate buses to Udaipur. The main bus stand is on the City Station Road from where one can take buses to most of the other important tourist destinations of Rajasthan as well as western India and northern India.
