Counting days to the weekend is something we all do. Most of our weekend plans consist of sleeping until late in the day, catching up with friends, club-hopping and bar-hopping, brunching, going to the movies and then sleeping some more. It is the same old circle of repetition. While we are filled with excitement at the prospect of the weekend being just around the corner, we often fail to capitalise on the occasion and do something extraordinary.
The good news is, Bangalore is one of those cities which is located closer to heavenly getaways like Mysore, Ooty, Wayanad, Munnar and more; these are the few destinations you can make a quick road trip out of. A trek to Nandi Hills can add some adrenaline-pumping adventure to your day.
