Built as a second option (or a belated twin) to Lakshman Jhula, it is amongst one of the most popular attractions for most tourists in Rishikesh.Tsctically built almost 3-4 kms before Lakshman Jhula, this younger suspension bridge is also a lifeline for almost every visitor...More
Ram Jhula connects both the banks of the Ganges, similar to the Lakshman Jhula situated 2 km away. The bridge per se is very narrow and only humans, bikes and cows are allowed. The bridge vibrates most of the time and you can feel the...More
Be careful with the bikes! Ram Jhula is an important reference and access point to the Swarg Ashram area of Rishikesh. Also because of this, the bridge is always full of people and bikes crossing it both sides. It's common to see monkeys on the...More

Not so sure you can visit Badrinath, Kedarnath etc. in the winter months. I was speaking to a sadhu from the Mata Murti temple in Badrinath and he mentioned that the best times to visit is is May, June, and July. I do know they close the roads in and out in Winter. Not sure about October. Haridwar is quite close to Rishikesh and would recommend that you stay and spend more of your time in Rishikesh than Haridwar. Also, I was speaking to the rafting company I used and they also mentioned that during some of the months the Ganga is too high and unsafe to raft. You may wish to also look into this. You truly do not want to visit Rishikesh without rafting. Again, not exactly sure of the months that the Ganga becomes unsafe and they do not allow rafting but I think that is more during the summer months when the glacier melt is impacting it so October - November should be fine.
I cannot help you with your travel plans with respect to trains. Never used them. We flew into Dehra Dun airport and took a cab (about 30-45 min.) to Rishikesh. Then used a scooter or hiked to get around Rishikesh/Haridwar.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
