    Bangalore to Nandi Hills by Car

    From many places in Bangalore, you can hire a cab to reach Nandi Hills. Now, several cab service providers operate in and around Bangalore city. However, a journey to Nandi Hills in the cab will be quite costly given the fact it is in the outskirts of the city. From the Kempegowda International Airport, you can also hire a taxi to reach the place. You can book cabs online with ease. Cabs are also available from the Chikkaballapur railway station which is 10 km away.

    If you are planning to reach Nandi Hills from Bangalore via bike or scooter, that is certainly possible but there are limitations.  There is a motorable road to the top of the hill. However, it is steep and has 40 curves before you can reach the entry gate. After this point, 4 wheelers are allowed but the same is not true for 2 wheelers.

    You may also choose to climb the hills using steps from the entry gate and it is not ideal for the faint-hearted visitors.
