Nandi Hills Trekking Reviews




It is a nice experience. If there is no direct bus from Bangalore to Nandi Hills then take a bus/Train to Chikkaballapur (or Doddaballapur) from there take a bus to Doddaballapur ( or Chikkaballapur) and get down at Nandi Hill Cross. Nandi hill cross is in between Chikkaballapur and Doddaballapur from here you can get a shared Auto to the top of the hill. It was a memorable movement.💖💖




Nandi Hills is famous for its iconic sunrise and cloud-cladded hilltop. But with this beauty come too many visitors (I mean too many is an understatement). If you go on a weekend and reach anytime after 5:30 AM, chances are that you may have to come back from the foothill only. It has no crowd management whatsoever and on top of it, crazy drivers push their cars in every nook n Corner. Go there on weekends and come back with anger, anguish, and a tired body. such a nice trek.💖




Nice Experience.. can visit now. Early morning 6. A.m. gates will open.. but u must reach at 4 clock itself.. due to the crowd. Sun rising is most beautiful full Experience.. touching clouds.. weak End nandhi hills wil closed...💖💖




Nandi Hills is a haven for nature lovers, had a wonderful time in Nandi Hills, but we couldn't find good restaurants to complete our day out, had wonderful nonveg food at Tappal Biriyani the bottom of the hills. recommended having tasty nati-style Biriyani at Tappal Biriyani Restaurant.




Nandi Hills is one of the most common names among Bengalurians for a quick refreshing weekend break. For years this has remained the most sought-after location for a family picnic, couples spending some leisure time, bikers, trekkers, cyclists, joggers, and travel enthusiasts. Nice trip..........................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1




After a long gap, we went to Nandi Hills, before going to the hilltop we visited the temple in Nandi Grama. Hilltop is well maintained & we got good quality food at the restaurant forever.💖💖




Nice place to visit with friends and family during winter. Visited 3 times with friends 3 consecutive years, and enjoyed riding a 💖bike with friends.💖




we get a good view from Nandhi hills, if you are interested there are many temples on the hill which you can visit. These temples are very ancient and i found it to be very peaceful inside the temple.💖💖




Nandi Hills is a true retreat for nature lovers. You can drive, ride, cycle, walk, or hike at your convenience. Try to start early morning or evening to enjoy of sunrise and sunset.💖💖
