This was once the summer retreat of Tipu Sultan. It’s a good place for hiking and birding. The hill also has temples dating back to the Chola period. It gets extremely crowded on weekends. The hills offer great views of the surroundings, though.
Suggested duration: More than 3 hours

Nandi Hills is the best place to visit on weekend for bangalooreans. Early morning is the best time to see the clouds and to spend good time.

I tried to see the sunrise but the foggy sky did not let me enjoy. Overall, it's about a big mountain where you can see an ordinary landscape, nothing very special or something that you should not miss... There's a small restaurant on the top...More

The fog in early morning and the crowd make you crazy but one negative thing is the watch tower has got rust and broken so should be carefully there while you guys climb up

The whole place looked like a large scale garbage dump yard :( If only they could keep the place clean... Very disappointed.... even toilets around there were not clean.... Don’t think I’ll be going there again anytime in the next few years...

Went with a group of colleagues on a Sunday. Was an amazing view! Lots of trails. Wear old tennis shoes, it’s very dusty! Be careful with water bottles and food, monkeys are not shy!!

Nandi Hills is arguably the most popular spot in Bangalore. So on weekends, almost everyone in Bangalore drives to NH. You anticipate beautiful sunrise and a nice cup of tea on the hill top. But the traffic snales to the top covering 6-7 kilometers in...More
