I was in Bangalore a week ago and while discussing potential places for a day trip, I suggested Nandi hills - as a girl who is unsure of her surroundings in an alien land, Nandi hills seemed like a legit suggestion. This is before I knew of Avalabetta Hill
Soon after my suggestion, I was stared at dangerously and things had come to an abrupt halt inside our apartment, and everyone had the same reaction to "Nandi Hills" which was basically - LOL. PLEASE. BRO. NOT. NANDI. HILLS.
As a weekend getaway from Bangalore, Nandi hills has been around for years. But if you've been living in the City of Lakes, chances are - you hate Nandi Hills (always crowded and underwhelming). For the past few years, the winds of change have been blowing hard on this ancient hill fortress of southern India and people are desperately looking for alternatives.
