Believe me!!! The favorite past time of any person from Namma Bengaluru is to go on a long ride or a drive to Nandi Hills on a weekend early morning and to get the best view of a sun rise from top of the hills. This is the must to do thing if you are from Bangalore or you are in Bangalore for few days or you have a plan to visit Bangalore for 2 days or if you are passing by Bangalore to any other city.
So this trip of mine didn’t need any plan, as Nandi hills is the most visited place in Bangalore. Nandi Hills or Nandi Durga or Nandi Betta as it is famously called in and around Bangalore is located in Chikballapur district around 60 kms from Bangalore and is also near to Bangalore International Airport.
With a couple of bikes four of us left on a ride to Nandi Hills on a cool breezy morning by 4.30 a.m. It was too cold might be somewhere nearer to 10* Celsius when we left home. By 5 a.m. we were on the highway towards airport, on a normal speed as this road will always be busy with vehicles plying towards airport. It didn’t take more than 30 minutes for us to reach the junction on the main road from where we have to take a left towards Nandi hills and we stopped there for a 10 minute tea break as our bodies were shivering due to cold weather. The previous night had seen a little rain which had led to much more drop ion temperature.
