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.

But, when in October we again visited the hills again, a surprise was waiting for us. We got surprised by the greenery around the hills and everywhere, we were not aware... More

From Bengaluru, it took us 75 minutes to reach there. There is detour after 7-10 kms from the airport. Last 8 kms is a hill road and... More

Nandi hill is a wonderful morning drive from Bangalore (1.5hrs) ....it was covered with complete clouds during monsoon... Best time to go early morning... At the top it is like big garden inside forest with walkways being built. It has ample parking space, few restaurant and toilet facilities. Just beware of monkeys, you shouldn't carry any eatables in your hand... More
