 Things to Do

 Nandi Hills is a popular destination for nature lovers as they can see several rare birds and plants on their treks here. While sightseeing in Nandi Hills, visiting the two Nandi temples and the temple dedicated to Yogi Nandeeshwara must also be a part of the itinerary. A tour of the famous fort restored by Tippu Sultan is an educational visit. It is here that visitors can take a look at ‘Tippu’s Drop’. This spot was where Tippu punished traitors and prisoners by dropping them off the sheer cliff to their death on the rocks below. The secret escape route that kings used to escape from their enemies is also open to the public now. Tippu’s Summer Palace is also worth a visit.

Several treks are organised here for those who enjoy it. Amruth Sarovar is a beautiful lake that lies on the hill. Taking part in a cycling tour is also an option in this region.

The roads are good. You can speed up because its a clean good roads leading to airport and on this hill ranges is in the outskirts of Bangalore. My friends were bored about usual regular malls in Bangalore when we suddenly planned to go to Nandi hills on saturday morning by 4 am. We reached there by 6.30 around and saw the sunrise. Took quite a few pics and visited nandi temple. But on the way back we met some localities selling grapes on the road side and through them that day went to awesome visiting of grape vineyards. We tasted different types of wines and grapes. Stuffed our tummy with delicious breakfast and then again wine. The people are down to earth and they even let us walk on the top.

The only thing we missed is paragliding in Nandi hills but we didn't know the precise location. Better luck next time.

I stay in electronic city, bangalore and I started to Nandi Hills on Saturday morning as I planned to start in a resort near Nandi hills.

I took route via MG road instead of taking NICE road as its 20 KMs shorter than that. But the city traffic frustrated me a lot, then I thought taking NICE road would have better.

Anyways after reaching the city out skirts I felt somewhat lighter and the Bangalore-Hyderabad highway is simply awesome. Its a beauty. I didn't feel like travelling at all. My car was zooming on a cake.

At Devanahalli we need to take the straight route instead of the left route which leads to KIA. As I not aware of the exact route to Nandi Hills I switched on my GPS and proceeded.

After travelling some distance, we need to take a left turn which leads to Nandi hills.

I enjoyed driving in the route. Far from the distance you can see the some hills and the its is very scenic.

I reached Mount View resort as I planned to stay there for that night and early in the morning at 5:30AM I started for Nandi Hills which is just 6 KM from the resort.

It was nice experience to go to Nandi hills by cab. I booked it from Savaari. Their prices were the lowest and service was the best.
I enjoyed my trip to Nandi hills. My experience is go bit early in the morning, it is worth it both as a place and to beat the traffic.

It was awesome trip in my car. On the way to our destination, we found many sight seeing. The road is just amazing. Many hair pins are there, it make us fun on it. The climate condition is simply awesome. during weekends there we faced heavy traffic which make some irritation, but rather than that everything is fine. Its better to make the trip starts before sunrise.

It was a good journey. We planned suddenly and went out. The car was on time. And it was weekend so less traffic. The roads are good and we got Governor house and doordarshan/akashvani (not sure as a long ago) on the way. The driver was very good and supportive. We booked him for the next day return and he was there in time on the next day also, though it was 60 km from Bangalore.
