Laxman Jhula gives you perfect environment to click photographs of beautiful Ganga river and mountains. You will also find some street food options & tea stall as well.After clicking photographs and wandering both the sides i decided to go towards Ram Jhula.Distance between Ram Jhula and Laxman Jhula is approx 10KM. I decided to go by walking rather than taking any auto or rickshaw. I also recommend everyone to go on foot. It is actually a fun and worth-having experience.Weather was pleasant and so much greenery was making it like heaven. As it was approx 6:30 - 7 AM of morning so there was no rush on the road and cool breeze were making it outstanding.There ware many small vendors on the road who were selling Rudraksh Malas and other gems. Some were selling juice, street food and fruits.On the lanes towards Ram Jhula I had a fruit named 'Ram Phal' which i would suggest everyone to try. It is considered as one of the local fruit of Rishikesh.It is said that Lord Ram had eaten that fruit after killing Ravan that is why the fruit is named as "Ram Phal"
After this we went on to the Laxman jhula. Laxman jhula is entirely constructed as an suspension bridge supported by highly tensile steel cables, same as Ram jhula. Laxman jhula is situated at walking distance of 30-35 minutes from Ram jhula, through market streets.
