Nandi hills is a small hill station near Bangalore (60kms). It is approx 40kms from Bangalore Airport. We came here by cab which usually takes 30mins from airport(for us it took approx 1hr as we stopped at many location on the way). We chose to come here on week-days (less crowded than on weekends). It is nice,calm place, pleasant weather. It started raining in the later half of the day while we were returning.

It is really a beautiful place & worth visiting. Rocks, Small gardens and bamboo houses enhances its beauty.you can just sit and enjoy the beauty. There is a small temple also, devotees can visit the same.
There is a hotel at hill top Hotel from Karnataka tourism if you want to book a room . Also there are small shops & a hotel where you can get food to eat. Not very great but manageable.
