    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.

    One of the old Bridges in Rishikesh.
    One of the old Bridges in Rishikesh. Since childhood, I have visited this place and these Jhulas. Ram Jhula is an Iron suspension bridge connected to the waterway Ganga in Rishikesh. Ram Jhula interfaces Muni Ki Reti with Swargashram. Ram Jhula Pul (Bridge) has played a vital role in the development of Rishikesh Tourism and it attracts many visitors every day. The scaffold is a person on foot connect yet individuals likewise drive bicycles on it. Ram Jhula is one of the two most visited tourist places in Rishikesh (another is Lakshman Jhula). The vast majority of the acclaimed ashrams are found near the Ram Jhula. Sivananda Ashram, Parmarth Niketan, Gita Bhawan, Swargashram, Omkarnanda, Yog Niketan, and numerous others are situated close to the Ram Jhula. Both ends of the extension have a little market with numerous kinds of shops.

Trip to Ram Jhula in Rishikesh was simply amazing, across the bridge lies another beautiful scenic spot known as 'Goa Beach' by locals with sandy area adjacent to the Ganga river, area is surprisingly clean and ideal spot for insta reels.

The Jhula is an iconic landmark and connects two important areas of Rishikesh. There are a number of important ashrams in this area. This also has good shops and eateries on both sides. A must visit.

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.
