Best restaurants and cafe overlooking the ganga. This the place has so much energy. I'll be surprised if you come here and do not end up wanting to stay longer. It has a gravity about it.

I simply can't erase the moments spent during our stay at Rishikesh. Lakshman Zula is lovely & appears more beautiful in night time. I was simply mesmerized by the aura.

Lakshman Jhula is a landmark of Rishikesh. It is 450-foot long iron suspension bridge erected over the Ganges river. A similar bridge further downstream from Lakshman Jhula is Ram Jhula. As per Hindu mythology Lakshmana (brother of Shree Ram) crossed Ganges on jute ropes between the place where this bridge is built.

Just standing in the middle makes you wonder how they built it and you can just feel the power of the Ganga. Nothing is impossible if we humans make up our mind to do something

Awesome during raining mausum(season). It is an amazing experience to see from laxman jhoola, “Ganga” river flowing with thundering sound under you. At night too it looks amazing seeing beautiful lighting of houses along the bank

A Swinging bridge across Ganga. A Peaceful location along the river. A walk during sun rise or sun set is a must.
