I count the memories🌸
RAM JHULA:Early Morning we decided to go for a walk from resort to our first destination- RAM JHULA. The distance was just 1.3km away and took us 20mins to reach. The best part, there was almost no crowd in the spot. The JHULA is about 2kms long allows just two wheeler vehicles. Just like big brother to Laxman, it is also bigger in size.
After exploring the magic of life on the raft, it was time to go on foot again. Next destination was Ram Jhula and we booked our hotel near to that. After taking rest we explore Ram Jhula is a suspension bridge connecting two banks of Rishikesh and is one of the iconic landmark of city. It is mostly crowded as both pedestrian and motorbikes use the bridge at same time and one can always feels its vibration.
Cafe Omkar and the adjoining lodges;Located in Swarg Ashram, Rishikesh you find an array of cheap accomodations and Hippy cafes. Of which my favourite is Cafe Omkar. With rooms/dorms available for as cheap as Rs. 300 and cafes providing a place to chill and reflect back. You can spend hours in these cafes and eat a full meal for just Rs. 150.
Rishikesh-The City: On the 2nd day, we chose to stroll around the city. We then visited Ram Jhoola, which is an iron suspension bridge similar to Laxman Jhoola located across the river Ganges. The bridge has numerous Hindu ashrams and religious centers surround it.
