This is the 2nd largest man made lake in Asia.. but in terms of view its just another big lake, with exorbitant rates for a boat ride with never ending views of the water and horizon. Its really far from Udaipur city (at least 2 hours) and can be easily missed unless you have lots of time

Nice and quiet place near to Udaipur. Good for spending a day or two with Family. Where you can truly relax and spending time with family. Location is excellent. Rooms are specious. Food is also good.

There is nothing to do or see.. Skip and save the time to do something else. The drive from udaipur to Jaisamand is about an hour long. There isn't much except the lake and boating. Unless you plan to visit the Jaisamand lake resort don't venture in that direction.
We stayed for less than 15 minutes after reaching the lake because it was dirty with monkey poo.

The Lake is so picturesque and its so calm and pollution free. Just loved the fresh air, the mountains and a lake as big as an ocean to a naked eye. Visited the resort for a lovely Rajasthani meal, costed us about 1200 INR per person. The food was awesome and this is the only place in entire city of Udaipur that serves a Traditional Rajasthani Meal. A must visit for a day trip or if you can afford it, then should spend a night at the pool villas.

Jaisamand Lake (also known as Dhebar Lake) is located approx. 55 kms from Udaipur. The road to Jaisamand is good & you would definitely enjoy the serene environment with the lush green trees on both sides of the road. This lake is an artificial sweet water lake (approx. 87 square kilometers) & was built by Maharana Jai Singh around 1685. The source of water is from the Gomati River. There is no entry ticket. You can drive your vehicle next to the lake. There is a premium resort (Jaisamand Island Resort) across the lake.

In case you are travelling back to Ahmedabad, please take the route via Chavand & Parsad onto the National highway. Chavand was the last capital of Maharana Pratap & died here. A memorial is there (in a dilapidated condition & rarely visited)
