It was a last minute decision between Nandi Hills & Hessarghatta lake. We picked Nandi Hills as we it was a long time we had visited this place in early 2010. Reached there by 6:15am & it was still foggy, we dint go directly to the top of the hill as it will get crowded on Sundays by travellers.
So stopped near the Tank ( Kalyani) area & started moving around near the Horticultural nursery.
