To break the monotony of our routine lives, most people like me look forward to weekends for a quick escapade rather than the usual getting sloshed over the brewed beer that Bangalore is famed for. When in Bangalore, Nandi is definitely the first choice that comes to one’s mind for weekend gateways. It gives a complete experience from enjoying overnight drives, halts by the tea stalls, late-night snacks, endless gossips to picturesque drive up the hills, beholding a beautiful sunrise and adoring the panoramic views from the hilltop marking the beginning of a delightful weekend.

Back in April 2015, when summers were exceedingly hot, as high as 40 degrees quite unusual for a city like Bangalore that is known for its pleasant and affable climate throughout the year. With summer heat soaring, it reminded me of my hometown when the scorching heat, sweaty clothes and excess humidity used to make a sane person go absolutely insane. While people of Bangalore were trying different means to combat this heat, I decided to pack my bags and scoot off to a colder place for a mini vacation.
