The Nileshwar Backwaters offer an authentic houseboat experience since they enjoy a raw natural environment. They have remained unexplored by most travelers. That is because they are not as famous as the backwaters of Alleppey or Kumarakom. Hence, they have less crowd and fewer houseboats which actually gives the place its biggest advantage. Unlike Alleppey or Kumarakom, the Nileshwar Backwaters are completely calm without a hint of hustle or bustle. So the destination is a perfect getaway for nature lovers, honeymoon couples and offbeat travelers.
The purely tranquil atmosphere at the Nileshwar backwaters guarantees a peaceful houseboat cruise and canoe ride. Since fewer tourists visit these backwaters, it hasn’t been commercialised very much. So travelers can expect the real and unauthentic houseboat experience similar to how it was back in the old days. The serenity of the place is made even more special because of the exotic views of the palm-fringed shoreline.
During their cruise through the backwaters, travelers have the opportunity of watching traditional fishing operations. One thing to remember is that houseboat cruises offered at the Nileshwar Backwaters are not as luxurious as the ones offered at premium destinations like Alleppey or Kumarakom.
