Ram Jhula, Rishikesh

(4.1/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Walk across Ram Jhula, a 230 m (750 ft) long iron suspension bridge spanning the Ganges River. This famous landmark of Rishikesh connects Shivananda Ashram and Swargashram and offers visitors panoramic views of the city. You can also see multiple temples from here, as well as markets on both ends of the bridge. The early afternoon gets extremely busy with tourists, so visit during the morning or evening if you prefer a more relaxed stroll.

  • Crossing the wide Bhagirathi river here across its gentle but swift presence is very pleasant. Having food at Chotiwalas near Ram Jhula was delicious
  • Very good expierence in jhula There are two jhula bridge ram jhula and laxman jhula If in rishikesh must expierence it
  • Ram jhula is a bridge over the holy river GANGA. This bridge is too narrow for car only two wheelers allowed and you can also walk on your foot.
  • Nice place, jai ganga maiya, feel fresh when you stand on middle of ram jhula,.
  • There are 2 Zula (bridge)s. Ram Zula & Laxman Zula. Ram & Laxman were brothers acc to Hindu Mythology. This Ram Zula is comes 1st when you enter Rishikesh from Haridwar side. Hung on steel cables it twists about its axis & gives amazing feeling to walkers. The view from here of Ganga & its Ghats is beautiful.
