Overall the trip was so nice. Few recommendations for fellow travellers - please start your journey in advance so that you can reach Nandi Hills before sunrise considering heavy traffic in weekends on Nandi Hills road. Frankly speaking, after sunrise there is nothing much to see, your head may start boiling on a fine sunny day. I went there In the month of August and luckily it was not a rainy day. Please carry enough water and dry foods, there are food stalls at the hill top also. For the fellow bikers, a bike with 150 or more cc would be preferable. Only 5 km to ascend in the total route, so it won’t be a problem for 150cc bike. Make your own way while ascending, don’t follow the bike or car in front. Most of the times it happens that the car or bike gets stopped while ascending due wrong gear-clutch combination, in this situation if you follow the vehicle in front, you may get stuck. While descending please keep in mind not to put your bike on top gear or neutral and use brake as speed controller. It is better to keep your bike at 2nd or 3rd gear and descend without braking. This will surely save your brake shoes, engine braking will do the work. It may generate a bit noise from the engine but that won’t affect your vehicle. According to me, this is the safest way to descend from a hill without burning your brake shoes.
