In Search of Tippu Drop

Last journey of year 2007 & my first visit to Nandi hills. Travel plan to Nandi was decided on the previous day at 9.30 PM. And our plan was to reach the top by 6-6.15 to catch glimpse of Sunrise. But we were late in starting reached Nandi only at 7.45. End result along with Sunrise, we missed the misty moring.

Bird’s eye view

Leaves & clear blue sky
As soon as we got down, all four of us split and roamed around aimlessly for almost an hour before regrouping for breakfast. After filling our stomach it was time for us to explore the place – Yoganandeeshwara temple, Tippu drop, Nellikayi basavanna & then a quick nap at the view point 😉

FlowerI missed the mist covered mountain top. May be I’ll go there to catch them.

How to reach:

There are different routes to reach Nandi hills – via Doddaballapur & Devanahalli. Suggest you to go via Devanahalli as the road conditions are better.
