This time, I hit Nandi Hills though we were a bit
late & missed the encounter of the sunrise view from the top of Nandi
As we took turn for the spot, a fresh air enveloped
us and greenery sprawled around was a real treat. The fragrance of freshness
emanated from the surroundings and I felt wonderful.
Once Bangalore was known for its greenery but now
with shooting population & massive construction around has stolen the charm
of the beautiful garden city.
As we inched closer near the foothills, I was
enchanted by the view. The mist on the top hill was a sight to watch and it
felt soothing and relaxing. But my joy was short-lived. As we meandered through
few turns, a huge crowd awaited further and the road was packed with traffic
clogging the road. We waited for some time inside our car but there was no
scope of taking it further. People started parking at one side of the road and
our journey to reach Nandi Hills started off on foot and in more than an hour,
we reached near the top.
The mood was dampened by the crowds, it was 14th
of August 2016, a long weekend and people had thronged in large numbers and
most people were on four wheelers.
It was my first trip to Nandi so I captured moments
of our trip and I felt nice roaming amidst the mist laden atmosphere and the
tall trees of Eucalyptus stood tall in the hills. It was
refreshing and the refreshing air helped me to walk barefoot for more than ten
kilometres on one side, but we could not reach on the top because the mist
cleared and the beauty of Nandi hills is the condensation of greens which
enables the mist to envelope the entire Nandi hills.
It was a
great respite from heat of North India and I felt fresh. The localites of
Bangalore had dressed up tight in warm clothes, but I felt soothing in my
still in Bangalore and planning one more chance to barge in the hills of Nandi
on any working day to be saved from the chaos of crowd.
