Situated 60 Kms north of Bangalore and 1478 metres above sea level, Nandi Hills, earlier known as Nandidurga, was the summer retreat of Tipu Sultan. He and his father Haider Ali expanded the existing fort, built by local feudatory chieftains, into twin forts. Attracted by the salubrious climate of this area, the British built spacious bungalows and laid beautiful gardens. They succeeded in converting Nandi Hills into a charming hill station. Tippu’s Drop is a 60 metre cliff, offering breathtaking views. Adventure sports lovers can try their hand at parasailing. Nearby is the Yoga Nandeeshwara temple on the hill.
