About Nandi Hills Camping:

Nandi Hills camping is a perfect escape from the humdrum of city life. Drive for an adventurous Nandi hill camping for a camping night and majestic sunrise from the hilltop. Nandi Hills, also known as Nandidurg or Nandi Betta, is an ancient hill fortress situated in a district called Chikkaballapur in Karnataka. Located near Nandi's town, the old belief is that the Nandi Hills are the origin of the Arkavathy River. However, different stories surround the basis of its name. During the Chola Period, the Hills were called Ananda Giri, which means “The Hill of Happiness.” Some say that Yoga Nandeeshwara performed his penance here, and the hills are named after him. It is also noted that the name Nandi Hills originated from the resemblance of the mountain to a sleeping bull (Nandi).

It was a nice experience staying inside Tent and felt comfortable staying. Dinner and breakfast were good. Had a good trekking experience and indoor games. We went on weekdays and no other visitors were present. Check photos for more experience.




I liked the experience, especially the Rock band was amazing. Overall I feel that I would definitely go again in the future.

We have booked for Friday and we were left alone there that was scary. I would suggest booking for Saturday if you don't want to feel lonely there. Staffs were really awesome. Though we are the only customers that day we were allowed to play snooker and foosball for free and not compromised the food as well. They have provided a good dinner and breakfast.




Everything was available as mentioned in the package except the live music which did not happen and the water supply was out for the toilets by the next day morning which can be improved. Will definitely visit again 🙂




Was a memorable trip It was almost a full moon that day. I always wanted to go somewhere with my bf and gaze at the sky full of stars and moon. Luckily we were able to do that. The food campfire the tent. We're so good that it made our day memorable. Thank you so much for that




Our stay with family in a tent accommodation was amazing. Everything was good and the staffs were very caring and supportive. Loved the stay and would recommend it to others.




Thanks to the organizer. Detailed planning was done. The food taste was awesome. The tents were arranged well. Lot of hard work by the organizer and the teams involved. The music stage lighting should have been better. Thanks to Francis and the team. Great job done!




A fun outing, with a hill trek thrown in. Though we went on a weekday, there were groups of other happy youngsters and we made lots of friends. The tents are clean and comfortable, and so are the rooms. And the food was yummy! If you stay in Bangalore, do try it out :)
