Travel tips for Nandhi Hills Bangalore visit

  • Visit early and return before sunset. Sunset is a must watch experience there. If you are driving back after sunset, take extreme care in the steep roads and turnings.

  • Plan to spend a few hours at the top of the hill, relaxing in the lap of the mother nature. You will enjoy the park and beautiful view from the hill top.

  • There is only 1 restaurant at the top of the hill, which many people may not like. If you are very particular about clean eating place or want pure vegetarian food, you may want to carry food from outside. There are no restrictions on bringing food from out side, if you can eat it before the monkeys grab them. Learn more about food and accommodation at Nandi Hills Bengaluru.

  • Do not keep food in your hand. Any food taken outside the car goes to the monkeys or stray dogs

  • The monkeys at Nandhi Hills Bangalore are very aggressive. They will grab any eatable they see, even from adults. Never leave the windows or doors of you car open. Monkeys will enter the car and damage the bags looking for food. Ice creams, soft drinks, packaged snacks etc are common targets of monkeys.

  • Don't forget to carry your camera. There are lot of scenic spots you don't want to miss.

  • If you can walk about 1 kilometer, you may park your car at the Nandi Hills parking station (bus stand, taxi stand) at a nominal fees and then walk the rest of the way.
