Picturesque view

The view from the jhula is to behold forever. The bridge is lil crowded but has its own significance in rishikesh. The markets on both side are connected and the photo here is to be treasured. They lit up the bridge with bright holden lights im evening to add a magical touch to the ganga river. Definitely a place we go everytime we go to rishikesh

Pathetic state at Laxman Jhulla. Lord laxman would be hiding his face in shame.

It was dirty. Shame on our heritage property. Tourism at its worst . Place was stinking of urine, near the entrance. Garbage was lying all around.

Must visit location in Rishikesh
Apr 2021
The suspension bridge is located above the Ganges river and offers some good views of the river and nearby mountains. The bridge is a tourist attraction and tends to get crowded. The surroundings are also not well maintained as the pedestrians tend to pollute the place. The bridge is not very wide, but people stop in between to click pictures, feed monkeys, buy trinkets and so on. Lakshman Jhulla is centrally located in Rishikesh and you will find several food joints nearby. Due to the religious nature of the place, almost all restaurants offer only vegetarian food and alcohol is strictly prohibited. There are many small shops nearby where you can buy souvenirs.

Pathetic jhula
Mar 2021 • Family
One of the most visited places in Rishikesh. We used to go to this place frequently when I am child. Now when I returned after 20 years with my family. Place is totally changed. Lot of people with stray cows , dogs and monkey using this bridge / jhula to cross the river Ganges. The place is dirty with cow dungs, litter .Locals are used to this , I suppose as they are not bothered with these things. But for tourist like us all our memories are shattered. To make more worse two wheelers are allowed to pass this jhula and riders are blowing horn Even not crossing the bridge with vehicles engines shut . I suppose , authorities might take any step to keep this iconic jhula clean and safe for tourists.

Just another cheap tourist thrill, decent river view
Mar 2021 • Family
The river view was nice. The monkeys and cows were a pain. But the Ganga view wa nice and made up for the chaos and the pain (walk from the parking). Worth a one time visit!

Great for people watching too!

Unique experience
Nov 2020
Being on this bridge and watching ganga flow is definitely an unique experience. But there was lot of crowd and as the bridge is small, you can't stand there for long.
Otherwise it is a must visit

Ganga from up there
Dec 2020
The swinging bridge is quite an experience - I am saying swinging as it sways quite a bit when you are on it. The experience of Ganga on both the sides is beautiful and this bridge connects you to the opposite side that has temples. what might fascinate you is that in such a narrow bridge, you will find scooters passing by.

This review is from a past visit as this time the Jhula was closed for repair work. I am sure when it opens, you will have a great experience the way I had.
