Nandi hills, just 60 kilometers away, is one of the popular spots in the 'places to visit' list from Bangalore. Whenever a new comer lands in the city, the first place in their bucket list would be to visit this beautiful place. It hosts a sweet spot to watch sunrise , but not during winter season as you cannot even drive up the hills in the heavy fog. It will be that adventurous. One of my colleagues was also sharing the information that the view of sunset is also great, but I have no real experience of watching sunset on Nandi hills till now. I am sure, it will also be splendid.
It was the month of December in Bangalore, the weather was so cool, a bit colder than the usual. It was an unplanned trip planned by my colleagues and it was decided that we are going by two wheelers. A road trip , precisely.
The trip started at around 5.30 in the morning, with all the trip members starting from various locations in Bengaluru.
Initially, few members of the group met together while the rest of the team was on the way. Our first stop was for a hot cup of tea was near Sahakar Nagar, while waiting for the other members. It was the only shop which we could find after a long search, also it was a Sunday.
We made a decision that the entire team will meet up at a certain spot before Devanahalli, so that it would be easier to continue the trip as a single group. Thanks to maps.
Since it was a highway ,tea shops could be found only at certain spots on the way. We could find a row of tea shops just a few kilometers before making a left turn to go to Nandi hills.
After the 'Yay' Meetup with the rest of the members, the road trip began. It was a pleasure to travel in Bangalore roads with near to zero traffic. We had to pass through two toll plazas on the way, where no fee is charged for two wheelers.
It was almost 6.30 am by that time and the cold was manageable while travelling even at 60-70km/hr.
