Kolli Malai is an ideal destination for cyclists, especially those who like challenging climbs in scenic off-beat locations. The iconic 70 hairpin bends of Kolli Hills will challenge you, but the beauty of the region, the fresh forest air and the energy and enthusiasm of the group will push you to the top.
 
These hills are covered by green vegetation and streaked with a multitude of streams. The hills are also home to three reserve forests. Legend has it that Kolli was chosen by the sages of yore as the abode for their penance, due to its natural beauty and peaceful aura. That characteristic of these charming hills holds to this day, and riding there is truly an immersive and meditative experience.
