Bahubali Hill in Udaipur – A True Gem of Nature near Lake Badi

What is Bahubali Hill?

At a distance of around 12 km from Udaipur rests a Hill named Bahubali near Badi Lake. Badi Lake has always been a center of attraction amongst all the Udaipurites and Bahubali Hill simply adds up to the beauty as it provides a spot to all the wanderers to adore the magnificence of the Lake and the Aravali Hills surrounding the place.

The place was recently discovered by a bunch of Udaipurites and gradually it got very famous between the youngsters of the city and the travelers. It is popular with some other names as well such as Badi Hill amongst the citizens as it doesn’t have a defined name for the time being. It is said that the name Bahubali Hill was suggested by a Google user as he found it similar to the one in the Bollywood movie Bahubali.


What to expect at Bahubali Hill?

Bahubali Hill is situated some 1 km ahead of Badi Lake Pal towards the Silence Resort. To reach the top of the hill, a climb for some 10-15 minutes is needed. Unlike earlier, now a rough parking space is available there too for your two and four wheeler vehicles where a bunch of local villagers takes care of your vehicles against 10 Rupees.

Few tea stalls have been opened there recently where items such as chips, tea, water bottle, Maggi, etc. are available. It would be a bit expensive up there as compared to the city so it is preferred to carry your snacks and water bottle with yourself. Also, it is advisable to dispose the wrappers and empty bottles in the dustbin wherever it is available.
