Trekking to Channagiri Betta near Nandi Hills, Bangalore [secret]

Hey Sid, is there any hill near Bangalore apart from Nandi Hills? 

🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️ There are more than 50 hills with hiking trails near Bangalore! One day, I decided to go for a hike near Nandi Hills, but not to Nandi Hills or Skandagiri Hills.

I found a mountain right in between Nandi Hills & Skandagiri Hills and landed at the starting point on a Sunday morning.

To start the hike, we walk through the forest area for about an hour, before we end up reaching the hilltop.

We decide to sit at the hilltop and just look at the mountains nearby. It is so peaceful - there are not many people and it's really a lot of fun. We could see a few large structures from the top of the mountain.

Difficulty level: Medium.

Preparation: Here's the checklist to be prepared.

Highly recommended: water bottle, full pants and sports/trekking shoes.
Good-to-have: Sunscreen, chocolates/fruits, umbrella, cap, jacket.
Additional: ODOMOS (if you have sensitive skin), anything else you've needed on treks in past.
