Muddenahalli - A peaceful weekend escape from Bengaluru
Located around 65 km away from Whitefield, Bengaluru, the birthplace of Sir Visvesvaraya is a must-visit place. Be it for trekking the gorgeous Skandigiri Hill or for fulfilling the desire to be at peace with nature, this tiny village has got it all.
There are a couple of AirBnB stays that can be booked easily. Every stay overlooks Skandagiri and a beautiful lake which makes the stay all the more magical.
We stayed in Nandi Valley Cottage which was perfect for three people with a well-equipped kitchen and a perfectly maintained lawn area. Waking up in the morning for two days to exotic birds chirping outside was a very calming experience.
Since we had a kitchen with all the basic utensils, we ordered fresh mutton through the caretaker and cooked it in the cottage and in the bonfire. Cooking tends to be a fun activity when friends do it together. There were heated arguments between two self-declared chefs and one moron playing songs regardless of the steaming situation in the kitchen. Would definitely call this fun, hmmm...
