We were on ou way to Ghattu ghat & this was during the sawan mela, we were a group of 3 persons, all the way through the jhulla was fun as we did not put any effort to walk, we were pushed from the start to end of the jhulla in no time, in the middle though I was afraid... More

The bridge is available only for pedestrians and bicycles. Beware of monkeys who like fruits that have been purchased Stealing! The view from the bridge into the depths and on the Ganges is wonderful. Now and then you can watch rafts. A great hobby more alien tourists obvious. The bells of the temple at the bridge provide a unique atmosphere.

As a person who's been visiting Rishikesh since 2000, I can safely say that if you don't like the Laxman Jhula area, with it's many good restaurants, hotels, stores, temples, ashrams, yoga schools, and more, then India is not the place for you. Yes, the monkeys can be a pain, and sometimes the (so-called) holy men (saddhus) who in their... More

I spent almost 1/2 hours at the mid of Jhula to enjoy the flowing of the holy river Ganga. I enjoyed the cool breezes and the surrounding mountains. You can enjoy the boiled Chana (grams) with the street vendors in the morning also you can enjoy the fresh fruits.

This bridge is a local attraction and has a beautiful view of the ganges. But it is extremely overcrowded. It is also used by two wheelers to cross the river and I am not sure if that is legal. But they are a complete menace. If you are not staying at a walking distance from this place, it is difficult... More
