Chintamani Tourism & Travel Guide

Located in a scenic landscape of five hills, Chikballapur is a quick getaway from the silicon business of Bangalore. Trekking to the Nandi Hills, atop which sits the Yoga Nandeeshwara Temple, is definitely one of the attractions of the place. A picturesque panorama of the five hills, namely Nandi Giri, Chandra Giri, Skandagiri, Brahma Giri and Hema Giri is topped by easy trekking opportunities at Avala Betta, which is only a 50-minute drive from Chikballapur. A day trip should suffice for the trek. The Vivekananda waterfalls is merely 12 kilometres away from Chikballapur, which is best visited during rains, as the waterfall is well fed in this season.
