The renowned River Nila or Bharathpuzha almost forms the northern boundary of Thrissur district. It flows through the culturally significant landscapes of Thiruvilwamala, Panjal, Cheruthuruthi and Desamangalam. The river can be scenically best enjoyed at Cheruthuruthi from the Cochin Bridge. The Department of Tourism has constructed a facilitation centre on the banks of the river. There is a Guest House in Cheruthuruthi as well as a handful of resorts.
