Nandi hills

It is advisable to visit in november and december because the weather is very good and one can literally stroll for and relax there for their own free time.

A great place to hang out

This place is so chilling and the every corner of this place tells you a story of that grand old era of dynasty rule and the scenic beauty it endeavored with it. A great place to hang out if you are willing to change your same urban routine life of Bengaluru. Witness the sunrise and cool breeze coupled with a good camera to capture the moments.

Beautiful temple with nice scenery and lots of Monkeys

This is just a point of view on Nandi Hills. Needs no special entrance. Whatever you choose you must reach before sunrise as this is the wonderful view from this hills. Best time to visit is sunrise time. Beware of Monkeys (don't carry food in hand).

Awesome place to visit in the vicinity of Bangalore

Tipu's Drop at Nandi Hills is one of the best places to visit near Bangalore.The main attraction near this place is early morning sunrise. Witnessing the Sunrise an awesome experience for me. It was on Jan 1, 2016 at 6:00 AM, it was full of clouds on top of the hill and the Sun just started to rose. That particular scene can't be expressed in words and one has to witness it at least once in their lifetime.

Good weekend destination

Nandi Hills is a very good weekend destination. Must see one is close to Bangalore. This place is around 50 to 60 kms from the Bangalore city. This is towards the Bangalore International airport. There is an entry fees. The best time to visit is during the sunrise in the morning.

Good to see

It is a very good place to watch and it is an ancient hill fortress in Southern India, in the Chikkaballapur district of Karnataka state. It is 10 km from Chikkaballapur town and approximately 60 km from the city of Bengaluru. So don't miss it.

Pretty decent point of view

This place is pretty historic and has a decent point of view. A little bit dangerous for the height but you can capture very nice panoramic photographs.

Awesome experience with chill fog

Nandi Hills is a very nice place to hangout with friends in the weekend early morning near Bangalore. Riding on a bike to Nandi Hills ghats with chill fog is awesome experience. One should visit this place without fail.
