Short Dash Next to Nandi Hills with Gurkha
Hi Guys had been to a Short OTR on the Adjacent hill to Nandi Hill,
Amol a colleague of mine was visiting us with his wife, so post a late breakfast we left home by 12:00 & were back by 3:00 for lunch,
I had seen a jeep track from Google maps satellite view, have trekked the hill couple of times (about 10 years ago) it starts from an other angle / start point, right near the start of the Nandi hills climb. This Jeep entrance was visible as a deviation at the first BIG U turn about 2 kms from start of the climb, so tried it this time, was suppressed to see a board at the entrance, it says 2.5 kms to Shani Mahatma Temple !!, have been to Nandi a Zillion times (for birding or Biking) but NEVER noticed this !.
Saw a couple of cops 200 mtrs in, trying to case couple of couple on bikes who had entered the terrain, spoke to them, Gave a lift to one too. let the pics speak:
