One common complaint we get to hear about Bengaluru these days is about the rising temperature. Of course, the city regains its cool climate with a splash rain, still most of us prefer for a quick trip on weekends. In summer, anyone would prefer a much greener and a shady environment. So what's better than a hill station? Have a look at some hill stations that are near Bengaluru for a quick escapade!
No one prefers to long-distance travel during weekends. Hence, choosing a place within a short stretch becomes necessary.
Don't worry! Here are some spots that are within easy distance from Bengaluru
