To go to Swarg-ashram, one needs to cross the Ram Jhula. So, there, I was trying to do exactly the same. I had to cross it several times within the span of the next two days.

See the crowd? Locals and visitors alike :-)

It really vibrates when being walked upon, living up to its name 'jhula'.

Ram Jhula is an iron suspension bridge across the river Ganges, located 3 kilometres north-east from the town Rishikesh. The bridge connects the Sivananda ( Ashram ) Nagar area of Muni Ki Reti in Tehri Garhwal district to Gita Bhawan, Parmarth Niketan and other temples in Swargashram in Pauri Garhwal district crossing the river from west to east. Built in the year 1986, the bridge is one of the iconic landmarks of Rishikesh. There are many Hindu ashrams and religious centers established at both sides of the Ganges. Though similar in design, this bridge is bigger than Lakshman Jhula which is 2 kilometres upwards the river stream. This bridge is constructed with the span of 750 feet. ( wiki )

Address : River Ganges, Rishikesh, Near Ram-Jhula.
