Visit the Nandi Hills
Go for a drive to Nandi Hills (57km from Bangalore, off National Highway 7) and catch the breathtaking scenery of the surrounding countryside. It's 600 metres above the surrounding plateau and has steep cliffs on the sides, as well as the summer fort of Tipu Sultan. Be there at 6am to catch the sunrise while standing above the clouds.

Tips for Travellers
Traffic is a major issue in Bangalore especially on match days with thousands converging to the venue at nearly at the same time. The best way to avoid traffic is to stay at a hotel nearby and walking to the venue. Arrive at the stadium at least two hours before the start time as security procedures may delay your entry in to the stadium. Coming early will also allow you to take the best seats of the stand.
