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

This applies to all cities: carry soap strips with you if possible, and wash your hands before every meal. Tourists, especially from western countries, tend to be susceptible to upset tummies and diarrhoea in India. Washing your hands can go a long way in making your trip a sick-free one.
