Lakshman Jhula is an iconic suspension bridge across the River Ganges and is around 55 km from Rajaji National Park. It connects two villages of Tapovan in Tehri Garhwal district on the west bank of Ganges to Jonk in Pauri Garhwal district on the east. The bridge is for pedestrians and is also used by motorbikes. Lakshman Jhula is popular for its mythology, history, photography, nature and architecture. It is one of the famous tourist destinations in India and is ideal for adventure lovers due to it being hanging at a height of around 65 feet. Ram Jhula is another architectural marvel hanging parallel to Lakshman Jhula but is not in function presently. Both the Lakshman and Ram Jhula are known to be the twin bridges of India.
