Well maybe it was the wrong time of the year, or maybe it's just me. But I seriously didn't see what the big deal was all about. I was dreading and all ready for some serious trekking. But i ended up circling around a lot in a very foggy place which served some excellent coffee. One tip- do not use... More

Nandi Hills is a mere 60-80 km from Bangalore (depending on where you start from), and is great place to spend some time. If you are itching to take your vehicle (bike or car) out for a spin but do not have the time to hit the highways, go to Nandi Hills.The last 6 km up the hills is a... More

These temples date back to few centuries. These old temples of Lord Shiva are truly places to see. There is a great view of the surroundings from the... More

It is a nice place around 2000 mtrs above sea level. An early morning drive from Bangalore can be quite pleasant in this season. We (me and my wife) left at about 5 AM to be able to view the sunrise from the hill top. However, considering the rains, it was all cloudy up there. However, that in its own... More
