About Dolphin's Nose

Dolphin's Nose is essentially a huge rock that resembles the nose of a dolphin. There are ravines on either side of Dolphin's Nose, including St. Catherine Falls and Coonoor stream meeting the Kotagiri stream. These water bodies are tributaries of the Bhavani River.

On a bright sunny day, visitors can get a glimpse of St. Catherine Falls from the top of Dolphin's Nose. The Catherine Falls is located at a distance of 7 km from Coonoor. Dolphin's Nose is ideal for outdoor games, like boating and horse riding, as well as picnics.

On the way to Dolphin's Nose, tourists can also visit Lamb's Nose in Coonoor. Dolphin's Nose is around 12 km from the main bus stand of Coonoor and encompasses the area near the Tiger Hills.

"Good place"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
The view from the peak is very beautiful. Its good to visit the place at sunrise. We booked a cab and visited the place. It will take around 30 - 45 mins from Ooty Lake. Families with kids can reach there but elderly should take care of the kids as there are steep rise at the point.

"Very crowded, not good to visit"

  • 3.00/7
  • Posted Sep 21, 2014
No idea why it is created, waste of time and money. There are many things to do rather than going there. Very crowded place and no one knows what to do and why he is there.

Dolphin's Nose is an excellent place to visit in Ooty. We will get very good view in the noon/afternoon hours on a bright and sunny day. Hot coffee is readily available here, enjoy it!!!

"Excellent drive when one passes through tea estates"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Aug 1, 2014
This place has a great view but unfortunately, a scenic location in India is ruined by commercial activities, which makes it disappointing. The drive to Dolphin's Nose is excellent as it passed through tea estates. Please do not forget to stop at Glendale Tea Estate to sip in different types of tea.
