    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.

Ram Jhula is similar to Lakshmana Jhula which is also an iron suspension bridge across the river Ganga. Located 2 km away from Lakshmana Jhula. This bridge connects the Shivananda Nagar area of Muni Ki Reti in Tehri Garhwal district to Swarga ashram in Pauri Garhwal district crossing the river from West to east.

Shivananda ashram, Yoga Niketan ashram and Omkarnanda ashram is located at one end of Ram Jhula and the other end has Swarg Ashram, Gita Bhavan and Parmarth Niketan Ashram. So if you visit Ram Jhula and Lakshmana Jhula you will almost cover major tourist places of Rishikesh.

This Bridge is also constructed in 1989 for Pedestrians like Lakshmana Jhula. There is no historical story and it is not related to Ramayana. It is constructed just near to Lakshmana Jhula so this bridge name is mentioned as Ram Jhula

Ram Jhula is one of two "footbridges" over the river Ganges in Rishikesh India. I put footbridge in inverted commas because the bridge is also used by many motorbikes and motor scooters who use their horns to clear a path for themselves as they cross. The bridge is also usually inhabited by at least one large cow/brahma bull and several monkeys. Warning: do not carry any fruit with you as you cross the bridge because a monkey will have taken and eaten it before you get to the other end of the bridge. Every time my wife and I cross the bridge we give a small prayer that we made it unscathed. If you want to add a little adventure to your otherwise dull lives this is the place to do it. p.s. the other footbridge has recently banned motor bikes and motor scooters from the bridge, but the bovine and primate populations still inhabit, so the same cautions apply. p.p.s. I forgot to mention to cow poo: watch your every step!

Ram Jhula (Jhula means Swing) is suspension bridge on river Ganga connecting the Muni ki Reti to Swargashram on the other side. Ram Jhula is situated downstream 2km from Lakshman Jhula. Lakshman Jhula is closed for motorbikes. Locals and tourists walk or drive motorbike to cross the river on Ram Jhula. Pedestrians and motorbikes are allowed on the bridge. One can see the great Himalayas upstream and holy river Ganga below it with crystal clear fast flowing water just coming down from hills. One can feel the swinging bridge when standing still or walking over it. Amazing pictures can be clicked on both side of bridge. A new bridge is coming up downstream shortly.

This place is the most visited icon of Rishikesh. Rishikesh's life moves around this place. Everyday thousand of people crosses this jhula. Some nice ashram are situated nearby and they are cheap, but clean and offers a great view of the river. For ashram booking please refer to yatradham.org

Now main connecting bridge across the Ganga river as Laxman Jhula is under repair. Always remain crowded . Local authorities should take care that no vehicle should be allowed on this narrow bridge but still lot of bikers go through this bridge which is dangerous for the air suspended bridge.
