Laxman Jhula Rishikesh is in Uttaranchal, a state of the union of India. Besides iconic Laxman Jhula, the hanging pedestrian bridge, there are plenty of ashrams in and around this town. It won’t be wrong to say that Rishikesh is an abode of the monks, sadhus and saints. There are as many ashrams as are the homes. Basically, this place is known for the river Mandakini that is pure and cool. This river flows down from the glaciers of the Himalayas. There are hotels and guest houses near Laxman Jhula Rishikesh. You should check your itinerary before fixing a place of accommodation for you. Once you have selected a suitable hotel, you can think of visiting Dehradun, the headquarter of Uttaranchal, to see the Indian Military Academy and the Indian Forest Research Institution. Both of them are pretty old with iconic status. You should also plan to visit the Corbett National Park to watch the big cat out in the open. Nainital and Mussoorie are famous hill station of Uttaranchal which might draw your attention. Nainital is a hill station that contains a lovely lake in its midst where people visit for boating and rafting. There are many other lakes over there. Mussoorie is the queen of hill-stations of India. The roads there are winding looking down deep drops and deep valleys. Once you are stationed there, you will enjoy long walks up and down the hilly roads that lead you to some unexplored and serene spots. At Jim Corbett Park you should go for a trip into the forest to see the Royal Bengal Tiger roaming freely. Usually, a tiger is a shy animal and it does not come out in front of people, but the tigers here are different and behave differently. You will come back to Rishikesh and if you have any religious bent of mind, you may drop in some ashram when the aarti is going on. The experience is full of bliss.
