Three different islands
If you decide to take a boat trip you can visit all three of the different incredible islands on Fateh Sagar lake. Most tours will stop off at each island for a short period of time and let you explore.
The largest island of the lake is called Nehru park. The whole island is fundamentally a big park with a zoo. There are over 40 species of animals at this zoo. Including many indigenous animals such as Bengal tigers, panther, elephants, deer, antelopes, Indian rhino, Asiatic lion and various bird species. You will also find a boat-shaped restaurant where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner after a few hours enjoying some of Indias most majestic creatures.
The second island is the smallest and is essentially a public park. Many people like to stop off here for lunch as there are many green areas with amazing views of the lake to sit and picnic. You will also find incredible water-jet foundations that the government of Rajasthan have installed. At nighttime these light up!
The third island is the home to Udaipur Solar Observatory which is the best solar observing site in the whole of Asia. Unfortunately, you cannot stop off at this island and explore the facility. Only people that work here are permitted to enter. However, you can go past on the boat and observe or take photographs.
