Explore Places of Interest in Rishikesh
One of the most prominent places in Rishikesh, Laxman Jhula is a 450-feet long suspension bridge at the height of 70 feet from the river. Built in the year 1939, the bridge is an important attraction as it is believed that
it is the same place where Lord Laxman crossed the Ganga River on a jute rope. While you will find plenty of cafes on both sides of the bridge, the famous places you should definitely visit are Laxman Temple and Tera Manzil
Mandir situated close by. When crossing the bridge, do stop in the middle and just soak in the view of the hills all around you. Nothing is more surreal than this!
No trip to Rishikesh is complete without trying the adrenaline-spiking water sport – river rafting. And the best place to indulge in one of the most exciting adventure activities in Rishikesh is Shivpuri. A hub for river rafting, the place is crowded with people who want to try this adventure sport. Whether you want to go for the short 9-km or the long 21-km expedition, you will find all the equipment and arrangements at Shivpuri. Of course, if you want to do it all, we recommend you book a 1N/2D camp. After river rafting, you can chill out in tents and spend your evenings around a bonfire.
