From there, we headed to Ram Jhula.Ram Jhula seemed humble in comparison to Laxman Jhula. Laxman Jhula is by far the most famous spot in Rishikesh. Ram Jhula is smaller in stature and less popular. But the river remained as beautiful!The banks of Ram Jhula were dotted with peaceful ashramas and banprastha grihas (retirement retreats), overlooking the river. The ghats, calm and spotlessly clean, didn't seem to be part of the same town. One can simply sit on these ghats and enjoy an uninterrupted view of Ganga. It was close to sunset and the slanting rays falling on the rippling water created a mystical effect. The river looked like liquid silver—dancing, sparkling, mesmerizing. It felt like we could spend hours sitting there, listening to the stories the ancient river has to say.
After such an adventurous day, we booked rooms near Ram Jhula.we booked it via Oyo Rooms , in which you can get some economic rooms which is with in your budget.Once we freshen up, we went to river side of Ganges to witness the famous Ganga Aarti.

Next, We took a cab to Ram Jhula. Built in 1986, It is around 450 ft in height connecting the two famous ashrams, Swarg Ashram and Shivananda ashram. Ram Jhula has many ashrams in its proximity such as Gita Bhawan, Yog Niketan and Parmarth Niketan ashram, known for their spirituality and simplicity. Devotees and travellers specially come here to meditate and achieve spiritual knowledge. We spend sometime at one of the ghat of Gita Bhawan. this location offer route to both Beatles Ashram and Shri Neelkanth Mahadev Temple. We need to leave for Haridwar, So we escaped it.
First thing we did was find Chotiwala and ate various north indian dishes consisting Chole,Bature, Paneer and what not. Once our Pet Pooja was done we could think straight of exploring Rishikesh markets.
We started our venture by visiting the two iron suspension bridges in Rishikesh popularly known as the ‘Ram Jhula’ and ‘Laxman Jhula’ which are considered to be of sacred importance as it is a belief that Lord Ram and his brother Laxman had walked on these bridges, hence the bridges got those names. While on the bridges, we could feel the vibration underneath our feet because of the commotion of people. The view down the bridges offers a look into the depth of the Ganga river which is breath taking and the same time gives a chilly shiver down your spine as you stand at such a tall height from the shore of the river.

It is similar to the Laxman Jhula. It's located 3 km far from Rishikesh and connects the Shivananda area to Swarg Ashram area.
Cross either of the two suspension bridges( Ram jhoola & Laxman jhools) and you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of the town and river. Venture down to the ghats fronting the river and relax for a while amidst the daily goings-on. You can also take a boat across the river near Ram Jhula as an alternative to walking. Every evening, people gather at Parmarth Niketan ashram (in the Swag Ashram area), to experience the Ganga Aarti (worship with fire).
