Rishikesh in general, and Laxman Jhula in particular are a place for yoga fanatics and very religious Hindus... Other than that there is really very little to do there. To my opinion as a very savvy traveler to India - It is HIGHLY over rated. The famous Pujas are NOT taking place out of season as there are not enough... More

Nice view from the river. We could see everyone waving at us and we waved back. Take the longest rafting route and enjoy the view of Rishikesh from the jungle to the urban jungle.

Great old moving bridge. Crossed over to visit temples and ashrams. Saw rafting rafts pass below the bridge

it was just a pathway where only pedestrians and 2 wheeler are allowed. There are no lights in the night hence it becomes really dark. You would never know what you stepped on.

This is a place to sit relax and appreciate life. Soak in the purified atmosphere by daily Ganga aarti. Tip: If you are not interested in someone's trinkets or services, avoid eye-contact and don't respond to them. Being polite and saying No Thanks is often misinterpreted as "I've managed to stick my foot in the door and should keep trying"... More

Nice to walk on it across the Ganges. Since we were staying at a hotel very far away we drove to the bridge parking and walked across it to the lovely cafe's and shops.

The walk on the jhula would have been amazing if there were no bikers allowed to pass by. The jhula feeling is amazing when we are standing and the jhula is swaying. The view from here is also breathtaking! Everything is nice except the bikers as the moment we try looking around and absorbing the feel of the jhula there... More

I liked walking on it, A bit scary initially. The sound of Ganga flowing beneath is surreal. Annoyingly, bikers from both directions were a disgusting nuisance. Don't know if it is meant for pedestrians only, but wish it were.
