Nandi Hills Trek

Nestled amidst the lush greenery of the Chikkaballapur district, just 60 kilometers from Bangalore, lies Nandi Hills, a popular destination for a quick getaway and a refreshing escape into nature. The hills, also known as Nandidurg, offer a moderate trek perfect for beginners and seasoned hikers alike.

Embarking on the Journey:

The trek typically starts from the foothills near the Nandi Hills bus stop. The initial path winds through eucalyptus groves, offering shade and a pleasant aroma. As you ascend, the trail opens up to reveal breathtaking views of the surrounding valleys and distant mountains.

Reaching the Summit:

The well-maintained trail, with a mix of gentle slopes and occasional stairs, leads you gradually towards the summit. Along the way, you can encounter several viewpoints offering panoramic vistas, perfect for capturing memorable photos.

Exploring the Top:

Reaching the top, you'll be greeted by the historic Tipu's Drop, a vertical cliff face with a fascinating legend. Explore the Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, and soak in the serene atmosphere. You can also visit the Summer Palace, offering glimpses into the colonial era.

Descent and Refreshment:

The descent follows the same trail, allowing you to appreciate the diverse flora and fauna you might have missed on the way up. After completing the trek, you can indulge in a delicious local meal at one of the restaurants near the foothills.

Things to Remember:
  • The Nandi Hills trek is considered moderate and can be completed in 2-3 hours.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothes suitable for hiking.
  • Carry sufficient water and snacks, especially during the summer months.
  • Start the trek early morning to avoid the heat and crowds, especially during weekends.
  • Respect the local environment and dispose of waste responsibly.
Beyond the Trek:

Nandi Hills offers more than just a trek. You can explore the historical monuments, visit the Children's Park, or enjoy a scenic boat ride in the lake. If you have time, consider staying overnight at one of the guesthouses or resorts for a truly rejuvenating experience.
