Udaipur is one of the most tranquil and peaceful cities in India, with shimmering lakes and mountains in every direction. It was the capital of the Mewar king and is considered the most royal city in Rajasthan. But that doesn’t mean you can’t plan a budget trip to Udiapur.
In this Udaipur Budget Trip guide, we’ll see how you can travel around Udaipur for less than Rs 6000, including everything you’ll need for your trip, including accommodation, transportation, food, and the best places to visit.
Here is the breakdown:
There are both cheap and expensive places to stay in Udaipur. I propose that you find a place to stay in Old Udaipur, particularly near Lal Ghat, where you will find affordable options.
I personally stayed at the Aashiya Haveli Hotel. It is Udaipur’s greatest budget hotel, located on the eastern shore of the famous Lake Pichola. I paid Rs. 3500 for two nights here.
Mansapurna Karni Mata Ropeway:
Maharana Karan Singh built the Mansapurna Karni Mata Temple on the Machhala Magar mountaintop.A staircase leads up to the temple from Maniklal Verma Park. However, it takes longer than 15 minutes and is pretty tough.
The ropeway, on the other hand, not only gives a quick and comfortable way to go to the temple but also affords a breathtaking view of the surrounding area. If you arrive between 6 and 7:30 PM, you might even catch a beautiful sunset from the cable cars.
The ropeway costs Rs. 87 for adults and Rs. 43 for children.
Sajjangarh Fort/ Monsoon Palace:
This palace was built in 1884 during Maharana Sajjan Singh’s reign. The fort is encircled by the Aravalli Hills and offers spectacular views of Udaipur’s city and lakes. The Aravalli hills are blanketed in the orange sky at sunset, providing a panoramic view of the City Palace, Lake Fateh Sagar, and the countryside.
If you plan on visiting this palace, go in the evening to see the sunset, which is spectacular from the balcony.I had to pay Rs 225 to enter the fort.
You won’t get a better view of the sun, lake, and boats than from Hanuman Ghat. It is the nearest location to the Taj Lake Palace.
This location is less congested than other tourist attractions in Udaipur, allowing you to enjoy the sunset.
Udaipur cuisine, associated with the age-old culinary culture in Rajasthan’s royal homes, features dishes whose fame has expanded beyond Rajasthan and throughout India.
In Udaipur, I had three full meals and snacks in two days for about Rs. 1000.
Udaipur is a small city without a public transportation system. Local buses only run in a few places, and there are no local railroads. The primary mode of public transportation in Udaipur is shared auto-rickshaws.
To move around Udaipur, visitors typically combine auto-rickshaws and cabs.
In Udaipur, I commuted by auto-rickshaw, which cost me the following:
Hotel-Karni Mata Ropeway-Hotel: Rs.250
Hotel-Sajjangarh Fort entry point: Rs. 250
Sajjangarh Fort entry point-Sajjangarh hilltop: Rs. 300 (I rent a scooter over here)
Sajjangarh-Hanuman ghat: Rs.150
The Final budget breakdown for a 2night/2day trip in Udaipur:
Accommodation: ₹3500 (breakfast included)
Food: ₹1000 (Counting 3 full meals + Snacks)
Activities – ₹300 – 400
This comes to around ₹6000 for a two-day trip to Udaipur.
