Trip to Nandi Hills:
Total Distance Covered: 180 KM
Date: 12th July 2014

It had been almost 3 weeks since the last drive, Baloo and me needed to stretch our legs a bit before we became couch potatoes, all of a sudden we decided to hit the road and take a short trip around places close to home, while we did a lot of off route instantaneous decisions around Nandi Hills there were a few spots we had never known existed earlier like this 800 AD scenic Bhoganandishwara temple built by the Cholas, while the temple is not only exceptionally scenic and full of architectural treasures, it's also a quiet and peaceful getaway from the city.

The climb to Nandi hills started later in the day when there were clouds passing and covered the roads making it difficult to see more than 10 meters ahead, on reaching the entrance to the hills the new rule of bikes not being allowed inside came as a set back and while it would be have been a pleasure to walk inside the disappointment weighed larger than the pleasures of the weather conditions at the peak time of the day, it was chosen to start the downward journey in to the city with a few stops to enjoy the beauty of the hills from the hair pin bends. The Karnataka Govt. should rethink their move of allowing bikes into the hills as it makes it easier to travelers to see all sights on two wheels rather than burn fuel on four wheels for a single traveler.
