Rishikesh

Getting around

Shared vikrams run from the downtown Ghat Rd junction up past Ram Jhula (Rs 8 per person) and the High Bank turn-off (Rs 7) to Lakshman Jhula (Rs 8). To hire the entire vikram from downtown to Lakshman Jhula should cost Rs 30. To get to the eastern bank of the Ganges you either need to walk across one of the suspension bridges or take the ferry (Rs 5; 7.30am-6.30pm) from Ram Jhula. On the eastern bank of the Ganges, taxis and share jeeps hang around to take passengers to waterfalls and Neelkantha temple, but it’s a 16km trip by road to get from one side of the river to the other.
