  • I'll be visiting this place quite often, since it's out skirts of bangalore it'll be best to plan in the weekends. Quite often I'll be visiting with my friends.. 
  • Beautiful view, crowded but plenty of areas to explore and take in the scenery. Food options available. Certainly a gem.

  • Ladies toilet up the hill is crowded and not maintained. Best option is to use the one near the parking lot just before main entrance. Also instead of coming really early during monsoons and winter you can come by 9 am... The weather and mist won't go anywhere. And people need to follow lane discipline especially when there is a queue of vehicles.
  • Really really beautiful and breathtaking place to visit! Each and every site is a site of gods best creation.... Amazing
  • During the Chola period, Nandi Hills was called Ananda Giri meaning The Hill of Happiness. It is also perhaps called Nandi Hills because the hills resemble a sleeping bull (Nandi)
  • It's a close to nature place. If you want to experience it at best, go before sunrise. The twisty roads are nice but be careful not to have any accidents as there are accidents on most days due to over speeding. On top there are some good views and there are places like tree houses where you can go to. A lot of monkeys are on loose here. So be careful with valuables and eatables. Make sure you keep children safe from monkeys. Be careful while riding/driving. Roads are accident prone and nearest hospital is 15 kms away!
  • Nice and calm place to hangout. Clean air and nice scenery.
