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.
