The police doesnt allow visitors before the sunrise, but, you should go here to catch the sunrise. The view from the checkpost are stunning as well.

You can either hire a cab from Bangalore or ride you motor bike. The roads from Bangalore to here is like a runway.

Nandi is cyclist's paradise and you should ride here too. On a weekend/holiday expect to catch up with a lot of other cyclists as well.
