Tour Overview

Treasures of Nandi Cycling Trail

A day-long cycle trail designed to give you a mix of culture, history, nature, and adventure while you rediscover the countryside on the outskirts of Bangalore city, around the famous Nandi Hills. These hills are also a famous route for cyclists who come visiting from all over the world.

The Nandi village, located at the base of Nandi hills has great historical significance and a few hidden gems that we will help you locate. On this trail, you will explore…

  • A beautiful temple with influences from several different dynasties
  • A quaint train station, whose old British style building is still intact
  • A silk processing unit to see how we turn the thread into a beautiful yarn
  • A potter’s village, where perhaps you can try your hand at the wheel and learn a thing or two from the master potter!
  • A ride through the countryside, enjoying village life and scenic beauty of life around Nandi hills; be prepared to expend some calories here!
  • Farm life and feast on a delicious spread made from organic vegetables

Who can do this tour?

This expedition is for anyone with a keen interest in having a fun ride in the countryside appreciating the outdoors and also soaking in some history of battles fought around these hills.

Physically this is not an intensive trail making it doable for anyone who wishes to get back on the cycle with a group of like-minded people can sign up.

Please read the Cancellation Policy thoroughly before you make a booking.

Solo Traveller

A great way to escape the bustle of Bangalore and experience the countryside close up. I was picked up from my hotel at 06:30. We drove out of town and started with breakfast. The ride was not strenuous – about 25km with plenty of stops – and included:
– Nandi temple
– Silk farm
– Pottery
– Colonial railway station
– Marigold fields
– and many other points of interest…
The tour ended with a tasty lunch. Tej is a wonderful and knowledgable guide who makes you feel welcome and informed throughout. If you are not a regular cyclist don’t be put off. The Nandi Hills ride is very gentle and truly unique. Do it! The company offers many other tours that sound excellent.
