How Many Days Should You Plan for Udaipur?
You should plan at least three days in Udaipur. Even as I say so, I know I have missed some attractive places in my blog post “How to spend three days in Udaipur.” So, let’s make it four days! Yes, four days would be an ideal plan for a solo trip to Udaipur. With four days at your hand, I can assure you won’t leave past any substantial locations in Udaipur.
Plan your time considering the day trips
If you happen to be travelling only to Udaipur, you can’t miss out on the nearby day trips. The remarkable locations to visit near Udaipur are
- Eklingji Temple
- Devigarh Palace
- Kumbhalgarh Fort
- Ranakpur Jain Temple
- Chittorgarh Fort
- Mount Abu
- Sahastrabahu temple in Nagda
- Haldighati mountain pass
- Bird sanctuary in Menar Village
- Jaisamand Lake
On the contrary, if you have a big vacation planned for Rajasthan, then you will probably visit them at your leisure according to your tour of every city. No need to bring them into your solo travel plan in Udaipur.
To sum up, you should plan four days to explore the city of Udaipur to its fullest. Similarly, if you plan to take day trips around Udaipur, you should plan five to six days, considering the places to go.
Is one day enough for Udaipur?
However, guys, if you are low on budget and find the four days travel plans in Udaipur a luxury, don’t strike out Udaipur from your plan yet. I have got you covered. The happy news is you can explore Udaipur in a day also. Of course, it will be limited, but you can have the privilege of seeing the most visited magnetic hotspots of travellers in Udaipur.

Udaipur itinerary for day 4
Maharana Pratap Museum in Haldighati
Getting to the fourth day, start with a day trip to Haldighati. Yes, have a quick breakfast in one of the local restaurants in Udaipur, and head to Haldighati. Haldighati is the historic mountain pass located an hour’s distance from Udaipur. As its name implies, it is where the great battle of Haldighati took place between the Mughals and Mewars. That said, you must visit the Maharana Pratap Museum located there, which is a tribute to king Maharana Pratap, and the historic battlefield.
Saheliyon Ki Bari
Then come to Saheliyon Ki Bari (Garden of the Maidens). Saheliyon Ki Bari is a garden built by King Maharana Sangram Singh II for women. You can spend some time here thinking if the garden has anything unique attributing to women. Aren’t you curious? The king built it only for the women. There must be something charming to tempt the ladies. If you find any, please put them in the comments because I am curious!
After finishing Saheliyon Ki Bari, have lunch and take a 2-hour journey to reach Jaisamand Lake, our next destination. Jaisamand Lake, also known as Dhebar Lake, is the second-largest man-made lake in India. And also a picturesque place to enjoy the company of beautiful birds.
Doodh Talai lake garden
You can then move to Doodh Talai lake garden in Udaipur. Since it is a two-hour journey back, you should manage to reach Doodh Talai lake park by 5:00 PM at the least. Doodh Talai lake garden is one of the best locations for sunrise/sunset in Udaipur. Although the garden is open till 9:00 PM, if you want to see the sunset, you should make it by 5:00 PM.
Karni Mata Temple
After witnessing the sunset, you can take a cable car ride from the garden to Machla Magra (Fish hill), located adjacent. Karni Mata Temple, the next place to visit on our fourth-day plan, is located there. From there, you can see the drone view of Udaipur and sunset also.
Then you can come back to the garden to relax because you have had a long day. A light and music show is performed in the garden every night—you can finish the day with it. Or else, head straight to your place of stay and call it a day.
Why four days in Udaipur?
If you have noticed, we already covered 3-day trips—Haldighati, Kumbhalgarh Fort, and Jaisamand Lake in our four days stay in Udaipur. So, it makes it easier if you plan to extend your trip to five or six days to cover the nearby day trips.
After looking at the places you could explore in four days in Udaipur, you must have realised two things. First, Udaipur is a good destination for solo travel. Second, planning four days in Udaipur is necessary to explore its beauty fully! So, without any doubt, plan a four-day trip to Udaipur and have a great time!
