Laxman Jhula especially at night is a very unique experience. Cows lazing peacefully, crazy motorbikes weaving their way at breakneck speed, people of all colour and nationalities, from saffron robed sadhus with long matted hair to hippies from various corners of the world congregating in search of peace- you will find them all on this narrow hanging bridge swaying gently...

It is a simple suspension bridge on the Ganges and there is nothing out of the ordinary about it. Of course the Gita Bhavan and Ashrams at the edn of bridge is worth a quick visit and the launch srevice across the river can be exciting for small kids. There are shops too for quick shopping for souveneirs. One can... More

apart from being a very nice hanging bridge, is very bustle and offers beautiful views. Mind the motorbikes crossing it at full speed ;-)

Good Creation. Nice engineering . Feel the vibration once you pass through it. Its normal bridge on the ganga river . Similar to Ram jhula. Near by you can find local market with some good restaurants .

Laxman Jhula being a tourist must-go when in Rishikesh. So the traffic to get there is insane and because I went... More

This is one of the most visited place by tourists in rishikesh. A suspension bridge situated over the Ganga river, the place is photoready and the other bank of the river is scenic. A walk on the other side is a walk to remember.

This is a beautiful suspension located at Rishikesh. This bridge is constructed on Ganges. You get a great view of Ganges and surrounding Himalayas from this bridge. In the evening, you can see holy Ganga aarati from here. P.S.: Please vote if you find this review useful. Please visit: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Travellers-Lens/1509934629218019?fref=ts

Crossing across the Laxman Jhula is definitely one of the high points of visiting Rishikesh. Walking on the narrow suspension bridge while taking in the breeze and watching river Ganga flow beneath is a great experience. What has ruined the experience is the large number of motorbikes and other non-motorised vehicles that use the bridge too. The traffic is crazy... More
