Rishikesh update


ram jhula ganga rishikeshIt’s been a while… and so much has happened since our last post. For example, Rishikesh went through a major overhaul of its infrastructure:

  1. New roads and new road surfaces between the market and Tapovan, and also all the way to Dehradun;
  2. Installation of road security reflectors and borders, especially in the area through the forest towards Jolly Grant airport and Dehradun;
  3. Building of pedestrians, fences and an entire new road structure with parking spaces at Rishikesh bus stand;
  4. Planting of hundreds of trees;
  5. Painting public spaces, walls, etc;
  6. New electricity wiring and cable connections;
  7. New road lamps;


Earlier this year the entire promenade along Ganga between Ram Jhula and Lakshman Jhula got newly paved. There are also now generous seating areas with beautiful pavilions and benches.

So whether you plan your first visit to Rishikesh, or come repeatedly, there are lots of improvements to discover, and enjoy.
