Katurba? --> Millers --> Mekri circle -->Hebbal flyover -->and keep following the Airport signs. Once you cross the airport, there will be a railway cross after sometime. Then you see a Jain temple (sort of) on top of the hill to your left side. Then slow down and look for a easily missable board thats Nandhi hills 24KMs.

Take that left and continue till the dead end. Take the left in the dead end and you will see a Nandhi satue right in the middle of the road/junction. Take that right, and its the start.

Good luck, and have a safe drive.

also another pointer , here nandi Hills is best visited early in the morning or during sunset , less crowd and the best views. I have been there numerous times at various times of the day and , believe me an early morning visit and return by around 1030 hrs leave your surprising refreshed.

Good point hellstar, my last 10 visits corroborates the same. Early morning is the best time to go.

achitng, you can load up on feed/drinks at the nandi statue turn. After that there is nothing till you reach the nandi hills gate.

Follow MJ's directions, you will land up in Nandi Hills. About hotels, there in one hotel on top of the hill but the food is OK...It is better you carry the food from Bangalore itself. On the way to hills you will find some darshinis.

There was one more Dhaba sort of thing before (5-6KMs???) the Nandi hills left turn from the highways when going from Bangy.

We were there with our regular groups this forum, and food was very reasonable.
