Ram jhula is the bridge connecting the opposite banks of the Ganga in Rishikesh. Our driver dropped us near the steps. The steps were quite steep and we saw the elderly struggle down the same to reach the bridge. One can cross the bridge ,...More
Rishikesh has got a charm in itself. Temples, water sports, hiking, Beatles Ashram, Yoga, Meditation etc... Standing on this Ram Jhula gets you an amazing view of the River Ganga. This place is located in the state of Uttrakhand and at a drive of 5...More
Slightly undulated ancient bridge which helps people, cattle and two wheelers to cross. Saves lot of miles of travel and connects North Hrishikesh to south. South of the Hrishikesh is known as tapobhoomi, as many sadhakas were doing Japa, Tapa and various sadhanas right from...More
It connects Muni Ki Reti to Swargashram area. Nice scenic view from here. After crossing it, there are lots of food options available, famous Chotiwala restaurant is also there. Some clean Ganga Ghats are also there specially Geeta Bhavan ghat.

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.
