My solo day trip to Nandi Hills from Bangalore was an absolute delight. The drive up to the hills was scenic, with lush greenery and winding roads. Watching the sunrise from the viewpoint was a mesmerizing experience; the view of the surrounding landscape was breathtaking, and I got some stunning pictures. Exploring the Nandi Fort was a bit of an adventure, and the historical significance of the place added to its charm. The beautiful Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple was a serene spot to visit. Throughout the day, I enjoyed the cool climate and the tranquil ambiance, which made it a perfect escape from the city. Overall, Nandi Hills is a wonderful destination for solo travelers seeking solitude, natural beauty, and a touch of history. It was a memorable day, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway from Bangalore. Trodly assigned a well behaved & english speaking driver which was of great help, i felt fully secure and enjoyed a lot.
