Rishikesh is not only about religious beliefs, ghats or temples; within this ancient city, you can also witness some of the architectural marvels and structures as well! One such structure, the Lakshman Jhula, which is also one of the not to be missed places to visit in Rishikesh, is a suspension bridge that connects Tehri and Pauri districts of Uttarakhand.

The existence of this bridge dates back to the age of Ramayana. According to the legends, Lakshman; brother of Lord Rama, crossed the holy Ganga River at this spot over a jute bridge. Centuries after this pious incident, a 284ft hanging bridge was built in the same spot by Rai Bahadur Surajmal Jhunjhunwala.

However, the bridge got washed away during the epidemic flood of 1924, and later, a pillar-less suspension bridge was erected at the same spot. The architecture brilliance of Lakshman Jhula and its proximity to several sacred places make it one of the most visited tourist places in Rishikesh.

Traveller Tales From Rishikesh

Rishikesh was planned in January with a group of 7 in mind, but unfortunately, only 3 of us could make it. We were on the verge of canceling the trip, but Mrinal suggested otherwise and egged us on to make it happen, since he himself is a travel enthusiast and has explored Rishikesh. Thrillophilia was a blessing in disguise. Right from camping to river rafting, from transportation to food, everything was sorted for us by Mrinal and Nikhil, and they were always available round the clock for all our queries?.? Red Chillies Camp at Byasi is a magnificent nest between the hills, and is 30kms from the main town of Rishikesh. The tents are more habitable and comfortable than my room back home! Clean washrooms, home like food, and great company at the camp made it all the more memorable. Rishikesh is still not as commercial as other destinations like Goa, so the people take pride in their hospitality and the warmth is palpable. The highlights of our trip were the 35kms white water rafting(Red chillies is the best in Rishikesh) and Bungee Jumping at Jumpin Heights. Any adrenaline junkie will remember the gush of excitement during these experiences. Safety is their numero uno concern and even jumping into the Ganges feels safe with them around! All in all, Rishikesh is a crazy place to go with friends for an extended weekend, and the entire team at Thrillophilia makes it all the more hassle-free and rejuvenating! Next dream destination? Someplace where I can jump out of a plane 25000 feet above the ground and live to see another day! Let's see if you can make that happen in India, Thrillophilia!

We planned a spontaneous adventure trip to Rishikesh in the month of march. It was a complete fun experience and very well organized.The camp is located 30 kms from Rishikesh, but it more then makes up when you reach the place. The riverside is cleaner and more pristine. Day 1: We reached camp at around 3 and we decided to go straight for the activities. We did kayaking, rock climbing, rappelling which was all handles very well by experiences instructors. Day 2: Rafting was an amazing experience. WE had a guide from chicago, I think her name was Aaron. She was very encouraging and fun to be with. She did a great job of safety and instructions throughout the 16 km course. Great experience overall. Highly recommended. P.S- Special callout to Mrinal from Thrillophilia. He did a great job in recommending this place to us and arranging everything at the last minute

Located in such a beautiful place like Rishikesh, the resort provides great scenic views and a very comfortable stay. The cottages are well designed with good facilities to take care of our comfort. We took part in a lot of activities during the day and would come back to these cottages after a tiring day. It provided the best relaxing atmosphere. Ojas resort truly made this one of the best holidays for us. My friends were especially looking forward to do river rafting and it was awesome. Such a thrilling experience! Even rock climbing and other activities were fun.

This resort has become one of my favorite resorts after I spent my holiday here last week. It was one of the best experiences ever. I had been thinking of trying river rafting for a very long time now and I am glad I finally chose this place to do it. Rishikesh river rafting is undoubtedly the best rafting in India. There are a lot of things to do in the resort...we would play snooker and other indoor games in the evening. You must definitely visit this place to have a great time with your friends,
