May 30th: Visiting Jaisamand Lake

Today we went to Jaisamand Lake, leaving at 8:30 am from the city. We drove through the countryside past fruit stands and motorcycles everywhere. The lake was so beautiful! It is the second largest man made lake in Asia. There were cobblestone steps that led down to the lake shore where we hopped on a boat for a half-hour ride.

On the lake we noticed boats the same size of ours, full of 30 or 40 Indian tourists, and we had our boat to the three of us!

We headed back to Udaipur for lunch and up to sunset point in the evening - riding a cable car to the top of a mountain. We ate rose ice cream and watched the sun set in pink and orange streaks of colour over the lake and the blue mountain layers. The perfect end to the perfect day.
