Cold at night time/morning because of the wind from the Himalayas, but beautiful during the day, about 22oc approx in November. Cows and monkeys roam free. Don't carry bananas openly as monkeys will take them and quite possibly attack you. Little Buddha cafe and Ganges River cafe were the best cafes. Momos served at 'petit momo' opposite little buddha cafe... More

The Laxman Jhula is a hanging iron suspension bridge over mighty Ganges river flowing downwards to Haridwar and Plains in full force. It was surprise to know that this beautiful bridge was built in 1939. The bridge gives a great view of lower Himalayas and Ganga river.

From there if we look down ,the emerald green colored water of Ganga is fascinating and... More

Stunning view of town, mountain and Ganges. Do not come to Rishikesh without taking in this site! Enjoy the monkeys too, although they are smart creatures so keep your belongings secure. 🙈🙉🙊

this footbridge is a wonderful way to see the ganges river ..there are always surprises especially in the form of rhesus and macaque monkeys to keep you smiling .....the constant stream of motorbikes is annoying however so be vigilant......and many a photo op is too be had .......

Nice views of the Ganges, mountains and temples. Lots of mokeys, which are really funny. Sometimes trying to take stuff from people, so beware of them monkeys and dont carry food in transparent bags, otherwise you might have to fight for it, but not only on the bridge, but everywhere where they are present :)

With all the crowd and challenges, we always found Laxman Jhula is the main point of attraction where the time can be very well spent. This is very good due its natural views...
