Tipu's Drop


Tipu’s Drop is a cliff face which is around 600 m high located on the Nandi Hills. History reveals the fact that the doomed prisoners were forced down the cliff to their death. The height of the cliff yields a fabulous view of the city.

The view from the top is really enchanting to the eyes of the beholder. On a misty night when the wind blows through the trees, the leaves make a rustling noise. The local belief is that the rustling noise heard is the blood curdling cry of the prisoners who met their ghastly end.
