Lakshman Jhula is one of the main attractions in Rishikesh. It is an iron bridge constructed across River Ganga. It has a host of temples surrounding it. Only negative point is the menace of the 2 wheelers. A peaceful location is turned chaotic by these honking 2 wheelers which zoom past the pedestrians on the Jhula. Lakshman Temple which is... More

this is just a bridge across the river. and its very crowded. frankly we didn't get why it's so famous. good for an evening stroll, i guess, thats all. the view of ganga is nothing compared to the experience you can get at a camp.

Should visit once. Same as Ram Jhula Only people can walk, cycles and bike are allowed. It forms a bridge between parmarth Niketan and the city

One of the two suspended bridges crossing the Ganges in Rishikesh. Although designed for foot traffic, do not be surprised to find scooters, monkeys and cows on the bridge. Early morning walk is great to avoid traffic. Plenty of vendors on either side.

The Bridge is a masterpiece and brings upon a nice feeling while walking across the bridge looking at the beautiful natural scenery all around and the river below flowing at a rapid pace. If you are accompanied by old people who have problem walking then you may face difficulty as autos are situated quiet far from the Bridge

The view across is breathtaking and the bridge actually vibrates, true to its name. A must visit and convenient route to go on the other side of Rishikesh. Although the speeding two wheelers on the bridge can be a bit of nuisance sometimes.

Nice feeling to walk on this old bridge. Narrow width carrying human as well as two wheeler traffic. It is wonderful experience to see Ganga Flowing below with bridge swinging (though very little)
