Last saturday evening,suddenly a thought come to me why don’t we can try Nandhi hills as a one day trip while we were discussing about a trip for Kudremukh. So I just informed my office friend ‘Vijay Anand (KK)’ (I hope prakash knows the definition for KK 🙂 ) that why don’t we can go as a one day trip for Nandhi Hills tommorow.
So our trip was planned and with us Prakash, and Deepak said they are joining and in the late night 10.00 PM I called my another friend Raghul (Indeed he belongs to my hometown) and checked whether he is ready for tommorow’s trip he said Ok and I went to sleep . So on Sunday early morning ,I got up early and ringed up Raghul and he was not picking for about an hour (later he said, he was in bathroom…I don’t know what he was doing there for 1 hr any clues guys ) .So I decided to get ready myself and then called Prakash and Vijay to know about there status but they were ready before me . Deepak got dropped since he has to go for Church this morning as per his mothers call.
Later while having a cup of coffee at Koramanagala Murugan Idli shop ,I thought of to give a call to Shreedhar and checked whether he is available ,he replied me positvely that he is ready and will wait at Bommanhalli to pick him.
So I drove the car to Koramangala Water tank and picked Vijay and Prakash and we straight way went to pick Shreedhar,we picked Shreedhar and then thought of to give a call to Raghul from Vijay cell (Raghul doesn’t knows who’s number is that) ,and this time he is caught up and I spoke to him and asked him to get ready where I can pick and go. Initally he said that he is busy and later I convinced him.
Now we are all set and our journey started from BTM Layout and went thru Richmond Road,Cubbon Park,Rajbhavan,Mekri Circle and Finally hebbal fly over where we got struck up from there to continue,So I told Vijay to give a call to ‘Prabahkar’ my project team member and friend (he has been already to nandi hills.. ) and know the way to go ‘Devanahalli’ where new international airport is located. We got to know the road to Devanahalli and started driving the car in the beautiful highways, It was a moderate cool climate on Sunday morning and I were in full holiday and relax mood(My mind was saying udai you are out of the projects for about another 12 hrs… so enjoy),I drove the my lovely esteem in about 120 KM and stopped at a place near devanhalli to get the pooja items (yes .. dharu only 1 King Fisher(for me),1 full bottle MC and other side dishes…)
We passed the Devanhalli New International airport and after a 1 km driving we took the left turn which shows the sign board for Nandhi Hills (22kms) .It is about 60 to 65 kms travel we reached the peak of Nandhi hills (don’t forget to collect the hill entrance ticket which costs 60 Rupees )
Nandhi Hills is a very good place for one day trip,but please make sure you take all the food and other items prepared yourself. It have costed as totally 2000 bucks for 5 persons including petrol.
