River Cruises in India. You are in the middle of an idyllic river, surrounded by misty dusk-like scenes, not a flicker of electricity nor a soul in sight. There is nothing but the sound of the river, the chatter of birds, the gushing wind and the occasional animal to give you company. Most roads are overcrowded, and there’s an apparent lack of privacy, but India’s waterways are the exact opposite. A luxury private houseboat, authentic 5-star cuisines and every possible worldly comfort you could think of is certainly the best way to enjoy your Indian adventure.
Certain parts of the country are still accessible only by boat, and the history, tribal culture and wildlife that many of these destinations have on offer are beyond beautiful. In fact, you are more likely to meet the country’s elusive wildlife without having to come across a hoard of tourists who continually force you to compete with the best view. If you’ve already been to the country, you know that purchasing train tickets or commuting from one place to the other is no easy affair. So when you get a chance to explore the country’s beauty and diversity the lazy, luxurious and old-fashioned way, you don’t say no, you grab the opportunity with both hands!
Most cruises can range from a day cruise to one week or more and can easily be incorporated into your Indian fairy tale tour.
