I stay in electronic city, bangalore and I started to Nandi Hills on Saturday morning as I planned to start in a resort near Nandi hills. I took route via MG road instead of taking NICE road as its 20 KMs shorter than that. But the city traffic frustrated me a lot, then I thought taking NICE road would have better. Anyways after reaching the city out skirts I felt somewhat lighter and the Bangalore-Hyderabad highway is simply awesome. Its a beauty. I didn't feel like travelling at all. My car was zooming on a cake. At Devanahalli we need to take the straight route instead of the left route which leads to KIA. As I not aware of the exact route to Nandi Hills I switched on my GPS and proceeded. After travelling some distance, we need to take a left turn which leads to Nandi hills ...Read More

It was awesome trip in my car. On the way to our destination, we found many sight seeing. The road is just amazing. Many hair pins are there, it make us fun on it. The climate condition is simply awesome. during weekends there we faced heavy traffic which make some irritation, but rather than that everything is fine. Its better to make the trip starts before sunrise.

Nandi Hills is is a nice place for sightseeing. The best time to visit Nandi Hills is during the sunrise. It takes more than an hour to reach the destination. So, one should start the journey in the mid night itself to feel the weather. The roads are also really good. The journey will be really good if your travelling by 2 wheeler also.

"My drive to nandi hills, starting early is better"

Starting early would be better as the traffic would be comparatively less. Nothing great about the route except the curves on the hill, any driver would like to drive through those curves. You would not find much vegetarian hotels/eateries once you cross the city limits. Need to pay a toll charge of 75/- at the Devanahalli toll junction and there is a entry fee of 100/- for taking your 4-wheeler up the hill (after the curves).

We left at 8 drive was long and not so fun, we stopped at a McDonalds outlet to eat. We reached at around 10 so it took 2 hrs totally including all the stops. I suggest the travellers to leave a bit early to avoid the traffic and bring some food to eat if you don't want to stop.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
