Sunrise at Nandi Betta – An early morning drive !

As happened on 27th October 2013

We left Bangalore early morning around 4.30 in a rented vehicle. We were 18 in number.  First we reached Nandi Hills. Nandi Hills gates open only after 6am. We almost reached at the right time. We didn’t have to wait anywhere. Entry fees are nominal. While on the way to the top, we visited Tipu’s drop. It’s sharp cliff, historically it is said that Tipu used to give death sentence to prisoners by dropping them at that place. Expect a cold weather in the early morning. It can be called as the nearby Kashmir of Bangalore! Around 7 we could see the sun rise. Sun rose amidst the clouds. Sun rise was beautiful. We came down the hill around 8.30.

Cycling the Hills will be a challenging task. Already it is present in to-do list !

Difficulty Level: Very Easy

Additional Comments: It’s a popular places near to Bangalore. Expect large number of tourists. A canteen is there on the hill-top. It is suggested to carry your own food. Perfect break from the city life on a weekend.

After the breakfast at a nearby hotel we continued our journey to Kalavara Hills. Also called as Skandagiri! I will be telling more about that in the next blog post 🙂
