Rishikesh is a town located on a partly mountainous terrain, it is a place for people undertaking pilgrimage tours and travels. Situated on the banks of the sacred Ganges it is always visited by people who visit Haridwar. This destination has recently been a hotspot for adventure sports like river rafting. The river current over here is very silent compared to what you see in Haridwar where it becomes extremely violent.
Laxman Jhula: this exceptionally old bridge across the river Ganges dating back to the 1930’s is the prime landmark of Rishikesh providing spectacular view to your eyes. Tours and travel agents by default mention this landmark while briefing you about this place. Similar to this bridge, another bridge by the name of Ram Jhula has also been built parallel to it.
