This chain/rope bridge is meant for pedestrians, but two-wheelers use this so much as to make it scary and difficult for pedestrians ! The view of the Ganges from both sides of the ropeway bridge is brilliant !

Ram Jula and Laxman Jula Both are just hanging rope bridge. When I returned there Ganges is excessive. At this point it is very nice to see the river from the highest bridge.

You get awesome feeling at Ram Jhula, very pure, scenic clean and serene. Lovely spiritual place. If you are in Rishikesh, Ram Jhula and Laxman Jhula are main attractions, and are must see. Both are equally beautiful.

So much for spirituality. I came here after Laxman Jhula and the difference was night and day. To me it was the difference between living spiritually vs selling it.

it's another bridge you walk across in 5 minutes. about 2/3 of the way across there is always a big shoal of huge fish below with kids selling you fish food.

Rishikesh is a nice place in Uttarakhand, i visit there with my some friends, the Ram Jhulla Bridge is a great bridge since many years. Nice place.

Ram Jhula is like Laxman Jhula about 1km away, but without the atmosphere. The railing is too high and the views are kind of desolate. If you can only see one, stick to Laxman Jhula at sunrise :) !

Like Laxhman Jhula there is so much to see and do in this area, great food and book shops, interesting people, walking across the bridge at night (especially on full moon) is epic with all the people performing their evening worship on the ghats of the Ganga, taking the ferry across is also fun!

i recently visited Rishikesh and made an offering to the River Ganges. We "strolled" across the bridge to view from the middle and had difficulty walking due to the constant two wheeler traffic.I had to adhere to the sides to avoid being hit by motor scooters which constantly sped by. The scooter traffic ruins the experience. No lighting was available... More
