  • We had a perfect honeymoon trip to Uttarakhand thanks to All Seasons! When we first started the planning process for the trip, agent Rahul had sent us a draft itinerary based on our general interests, time to spent, and probably the typical stops that a first time visitor to Uttarakhand would like to experience

  • Nitin did a superb job of organizing a fabulous family holiday for seven of us to celebrate special birthdays in April 2016. He paid amazing attention to detail especially as one of our group uses a wheelchair. Nitin was quick to respond to our original inquiry and quick to understand the type of holiday.

  • Arun was our point of contact and we feel he did an outstanding, superb, wonderful job. My wife and I have made several trips with mixed experiences and were a little concerned about going on a fifteen days Himachal trip on our own. But we have to give Arun major props!!! All our transfers, tours and connections went exactly as scheduled

Lakshman Jhula

Lakshman Jhula, the famous hanging bridge across Ganga, is about 3 km from the main township of Rishikesh. It is 450 feet long and is situated at a height of 70 feet from the river. As per mythological tales, once Lakshman, the younger brother of Lord Rama, crossed river Ganga at the same site where the bridge now stands. At that time, there was only a suspension bridge, made of jute. After this incident, the bridge came to be known as ‘Lakshman Jhula’. With time, the jute bridge eroded and a new iron bridge was built along the same path in 1939. Lakshman Jhula is actually an adjoining bridge across the Ganga, along the old route to the holy shrines of Badrinath and Kedarnath. The jhula has now become one of the most visited tourist spot of Rishikesh, not simply because of its ancient origin and religious sanctity, but also because of the grand temples and wonderful local markettht have come to be developed around it. A thirteen storey temple, called Terah Manzil, near the Lakshman Jhula is very popular amongst visitors.
The top floor of this temple gives a wonderful view of the surroundings. Another temple around the bridge is the ‘Lakshman temple’, with Risha Kund. According to locals, Lord Ram and Lakshman took bath in the kund, after killing Ravana, to get rid of their sins.
