Situated at Muni Ki Reti in Rishikesh, Uttrakhand, Ram Jhula is a significant landmark. Built in 1986 over river Ganges, this is an iron suspension bridge, used mainly to cross the river. There are Hindu ashrams and temples around the bridge, worth to visit. Recommended for families, groups and tourists across the globe.

I born in this area. Truly I like Rishikesh. There are Ganges, mountains, beautiful temples, all modern facilities and the best climate.

Just before the kawar mela, passing through the busy street comes the jhulla, now the administration has put in two pole barrier, maybe to stop the two wheelers from plying on the bridge, it will be a good idea to ban two wheelers on the bridge, great cool breeze on the jhulla is mindblowing.

This bridge is more crowded and there was a little further from our hotel! But to walk on it you have to! Be sure to meet some brazen monkeys and probably more cows that sprawling imposingly in the center of the bridge !! By the way I advise everyone to look at his feet, and then the cow poop there...

I have been to this place at least 30 years ago, when it was a serene, uncrowded place and had a real holy ambiance. During my recent visit I was disappointed to see the unending number of shops and stalls and a whole bunch of unruly crowd, creating nuisance all over the place. The place now smells of business and... More

Enjoyed a walk over the bridge which connects tapovan to main rishikesh city. It gives not only a spectacular view but the freeze from the Ganges just touches your soul.

One must enjoy the swings and the long span of the hanging bridge which will describe its quality itself. The Jhula is located to the mid of all famous ashrams and famous ghats for taking a holy dip the river Ganga. You can enjoy the boating here which is quiet cheap (Rs. 10 for one side and Rs. 15 for... More

Nice to see this huge rope bridge connecting both the banks of Ganga river. Offers an excellent view of the river as well as Ghats on both the sides. They have however allowed two wheelers to cross over Ram Jhula and that is a nuisance because every now and then somebody is honking behind you. Overall, its fine.

Its an experience. Beautiful bridge, View is awesome and spiritually inspiring at evening time around 5pm-9pm. Whole bridge made of metal.First foot I put there and I was shaking and feeling the groove. Cow was also present on the bridge, was sitting and I guess was taking a sun bath. Few children were asking us to feed the fishes which... More
