In the busy world, we all live for one weekend or one Sunday that can refresh our mind and body for next one week of work. So, for people living in Bangalore, here is a list of 13 weekend getaways from Bangalore that are less than 200 Kms away from Bangalore. I present the list based on my experience. I might miss out a few and comment section always open to add if any..!!!   (The list contains places suitable for family visit and does not include any trekking or adventurous places..!)

1. Nandi Hills

1a1_ 1a2

Nandi Hills is one of the most suggested weekend getaways. Can be back home by noon after visiting the place. Will be at its best during December – Feb. You get a feeling of standing above clouds since the Mist in the lower level look like Cloud and you stand at a greater height. To get this kind of view, be there by 6.00 am. The place will be overcrowded during weekends. If you have kids, better go by car since they allow car till the peak. If bike will need to walk for 15 mins and actually will be a pleasant one on a perfect misty morning.

      Thanks for mentioning Tatte Kere. Waiting from long time to visit the place.. your comment just reminded me that I have not visited it yet.. 🙂
