Nandi Hills information
Rising to 1455m, the Nandi Hills , 60km north of Bengaluru, were once the summer retreat of Tipu Sultan. Today, it’s Bengaluru’s favourite weekend getaway, and is predictably congested on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s a good place for hiking, with stellar views and two notable Chola temples . Buses head to Nandi Hills (Rs40, two hours) from Bengaluru’s Central bus stand.
