swing walk

Laxman jhula has its own importance in rishikesh. The view of GANGA from the Laxman jhula is very nice and pleasant.

It is the old bridge. Earlier the bridge used to swing now it has been made strong and maintained. Now it doesn't swing much.

When you are in Rishikesh, you should pass through the LaxmanJhula and spend some time in this bridge , see the surrounding areas, Its unbelievable and it will give you a great peace of mind, if possible see it before sunset and then witness the Ganga Arti darshan. A great relaxation.

Best time to visit is early morning where you can enjoy the calmness of ganga river.If you go after 8a.m the sun will not show mercy on you neither the motorists. So go early and enjoy your time.

One should must go to Laxman Jhula while going to Rishikesh and Haridwar. It is an old jhula but reminds the technology using to cross the big rivers like Ganga. Need to keep it clean by Govt. agencies and by ourselves too.

it is now completely ruined. it is as it is a narrow bridge and you are literally jostled around, as two wheelers are allowed on the bridge and if you dont watch where you are going, u have had it. there is no chance of leisurely standing and watching the Ganga, as the crowd will prevent you from doing that.

Laxman Jhula is a special neighborhood in the city of Rishikesh.It's called like this because of the bridge over Ganga River. But it's much more than this.It's one of the cleanest spots in the city and has special places for bathing and eating. It's the preferred place for the Yoga schools and practices and the river murmur is highly appropriate... More
