GaviRanganatha Swamy Temple, Channapatna:
A Beautiful, Scenic Hillock near Bangalore and an ideal spot to catch the Sunrise. Its one of the unexplored and lesser known hill and hence totally free from crowd. I was the only Soul on the Hill that day so it was a Solo Ride in its true sense. Stay tuned for Part 2 of this Ride where I explore the hill.
Give a thumbs up if you liked the Video and please share the Video with your friends. Happy Trailblazing!!

You can have breakfast on the way in Bidadi in any of the Thatte Idly Joints on Mysore Road. There are so many new ones that have come up in recent times that you'll be confused where to stop.
PS: If you don't like Idlys then you can try Dosas & Rice Bath :)
Some of the best ones as per my experience are below:
1) Sree Renukamba Bidadi Thatte Idly - One of the oldest and the best for Thatte Idly with butter and medu Vada. Easy to miss this one while driving. Look for the board. This is after a few other hotels. https://goo.gl/maps/D3PmXZ7jrdP2
2) Shree Shivadarshana Shashi Thatte Idly Hotel- Good one. Serves Dosas as well. Enough space to sit. There's huge crowd on weekends so have to go for self service. Parking Space is available.
3) Shree Shivasagar Thatte Idly Hotel and Dose Camp: The first one with a Big yellow board while coming from Bangalore Side. There's Ample parking space which is why most people stop here.
4) Hotel Guru : Rice bath is good. The Idly's and Vada's not so much. Used to visit this place only for Rice bath.
Toilets are usually at the backside of the Hotels. Just ask around.
If its the ambiance that you are looking for then you can stop at A2B(Adyar Anandha Bhavan). But I'd any day prefer tasty food in a small hotel to the ambiance of a big restaurant with hefty price.
Follow me on
I'd recommend Gavirangana Betta as a Breakfast Getaway destination from Bangalore since its quite near.
All the other hills near Bangalore like Nandi Hills, DD Hills, Avalabetta etc are way more popular and over crowded on weekends. Very few places like this offer the scenery and the solitude.
Please keep the place calm and clean if you happen to visit this place. Carry your Trash with you and please do not litter.
