At this time of the year not much overcrowding. Perfect season to enjoy the place. The view of Ganga is amazing.

A link across River Ganges linking Rishikesh on one side and tapovan on the other side. It. Is a narrow bridge which is almost a pedestrian bridge, but two wheelers and cattle complete with pedestrians.
The Sathya Sai School, North Prasanthi annnd newly opened Sri Sathya Sai Ghaat all add up to
mystic charms on one. And a 12 stored temple and shopping complex with idols of major Indian Temples on the other bank all offer a nice charm .
Crossing the Lakshman Jhula suspension bridge is a must while visiting Rishikesh. Beautiful scenery of the mighty Ganga, the Himalayan foothills and a bustling, colourful array of people. There were a lot of monkeys on the bridge which added a bit of comedic value. Cows also cross the bridge so watch out for cow pats while walking across. There is an array of colourful shops, restaurants and beauty parlours on either side of the bridge. I couldn't find an ATM anywhere so bring some cash with you.
It's like a ritual to go to Lakshman Jhula that's why we went, otherwise I feel it's lost it's original charm.
The constant traffic of passing two wheelers is very irritating and also harrowing.
It would be wonderful to stand and gaze around for a while....
But it's always so crowded that the joy is lost....
It was a exhilarating experience to cross the ganges on the hanging bride, Lakshman Jhula. This is one of the two hanging bridges. The view of Ganges is fantastic from the Jhula.
