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

When ordering coffee at a restaurant, especially in south Indian fast-food restaurants, ask specifically for filter coffee - it is made by mixing milk with a concentrated decoction of roasted coffee powder and water. The instant-powder coffee which you get in most places is a sorry sight (and taste) for any coffee lover, being horribly milky and sweet. But filter coffee is excellent. You may even want to buy some when you leave.
