Windy Rocks/Gali Bandalu of Andhra - Horsley hills
Situated at an altitude of 4,100 ft this serene hill station is named after W.D. Horsley, the British collector of Cuddapah district. Horsley had built his home here in the 1870s at Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh
Horsley reminded me of Nandi Hills. The similarities are many - the nice drive up to the hills, the pleasant weather, and many scenic viewpoints.
It is a good place for relaxation, rejuvenation, peace of mind and so on.....
