Parts of Ram Jhula are bustling with pilgrims and tourists, parts - especially the beach - are tranquil and serene. I love all sides of this place, both the craziness and the peace. It is a fantastic place for people watching and photography, and invariably you will see a cow do something amusing. For me, one of the highlights is... More

If you have been to Laxman Jhula - do not waist you time. No Pujas out of season as very few people visit.

This is one of the two bridges of Rishikesh. Originally, it should be just a pedestrian bridge but a lot of people drive on it with scooters and motorbikes. The bridge is not vry stable.. The bridge gets very busy during peak hours and it makes very difficult to cross it. That is why I often used the boat to... More

Time slows here and it is a great experience for religious and non-religious people. Enjoy a dip in the holy Ganga river and exprience life here. I guess the Ganga Aarti purifies the atmosphere and it just feels so good here!

Ram Jhula is a replica of Laxman Jhula, again a very crowded hanging bridge. Bikers create a nuisance here and don't allow to stand and enjoy the view peacefully. Besides that the bridge has an amazing view of Ganga Ji and also amazing Sunset view. Also this bridge is bigger than Laxman Jhula and serves as a Connectivity.

The pathway was absolutely jam packed. On top of that, two wheelers were allowed to ply. It was not a great experience walking along it.

Its another hanging bridge connecting the temples with the main road but this one is bigger than Laxman Jhula. When you walk on this bridge, you could feel the swing since its suspended with iron cables. Need maintenance and 2 wheeler restriction.
