    I came to Dehradun for an official trip. Had one free day so planned to go to Rishikesh. Booked a cab from Dehradun for Rs 2200. We travelled to Rishikesh. The driver parked in the Ram Jhulla parking area. The parking charge is Rs 120. We had a bath in Ganga after crossing the Ram Jhulla. The water was clear. Crowd was also less. Ice cold water dip was wonderful.

    Just been to Rishikesh and got the chance to visit this historic bridge connecting both shores of Ganges for travellers and city people like us. Well I was surprised to see that this time there were no lights lit during my evening visit which can be quite dangerous for people walking on the bridge. But the charm is one that you should not miss while walking over this. Beautiful views on both sides with fresh breath of air makes it more pure. Truly amazing experience.

    You can feel the fresh air through the winds touching Maa Ganga here.
    The strong winds coming from the mountains on Ram Jhula at night have a different feel. The cool breeze makes the bridge shake as if you are doing a Titanic pose. We stood for at Ram Jhula for 30 minutes at night but that was the best moment of the pure journey. That day we also went to Chotiwala via Ram Jhula but could not stand due to huge crowd. The lights installed on the bridge were faulty, it would have been better if the lights were correct.

    Beautiful scenic view of the Ganges
    Beautiful scenic view of the Ganges and a lot of history. Beautiful people and hosts. Only downside are the hagglers who won’t leave you be and take photos of you with strangers if you’re from the western side of the globe. Nonetheless a beautiful place that can be explored with the entire family. Definitely worth the visit

    Ram Jhula - The Swinging bridge
    Ram Jhula is an iron suspension bridge across the river Ganges, located 3 kilometres north-east from the town Rishikesh in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. - Wikipedia Ram Jhula is a relatively old construction – 1986. The lights were out by the time we reached and that wasn’t nice. It actually had the swing feel so the name Jhula – swinging! It was swinging wildly and we actually had to turn back. Wanted to go to Gita Bhawan after crossing the bridge but couldn’t.

    See it in night with lights on
    Since the closure of Laxman Jhulla to vehicular traffic, this iconic suspension bridge has become a bustling thoroughfare for both pedestrians and bikers. At any given time, the bridge is adorned with a lively crowd, creating an energetic atmosphere. The view from the bridge, overlooking the majestic Ganga River and the captivating sight of rafting activities below, adds to its charm. Approaching the Ramjhulla parking side, visitors are treated to a picturesque view of the Ganges. Toward the end of the bridge, on the left-hand side, lies Goa Beach, offering a serene escape along the riverbank. Crossing the Jhulla and continuing on the left, one encounters the road leading to Laxman Jhulla. On the right side, the area is adorned with renowned tourist destinations, predominantly ashrams such as Parmarth Niketan, Swargashram, and Sivanand. Notably, the famous Chotiwala restaurants are also situated on this side, providing a taste of local cuisine. The allure of Ram Jhulla is further heightened during the evening when the entire structure is illuminated, casting a warm glow across the surroundings. This nightly transformation enhances the bridge's beauty, creating a captivating ambiance that draws visitors to witness the enchanting play of lights against the backdrop of the flowing Ganga River. Ram Jhulla stands not only as a functional crossing but also as a symbol of vibrancy and charm in the heart of Rishikesh.

Fantastic view of holy river Ganga and mountains. Lovely shops to browse and delicious food to whet yr appetite after you cross the bridge to the other side. . Start your visit early so that you can also go to Neelkanth from there.

The bridge gets crowded. We were thinking that this is a pedestrian only bridge but turns out it is not. There are motor bikes and scooters using the bridge to cross the river. This in our view ruins the overall experience. Otherwise, just great to walk on the bridge and you will also see lots of rafters on the river. There is a parking fee to this attraction(100 INR) and you need to walk 10mnts. from the parking lot to the bridge. Enjoy!
