About Dolphin's Nose (View point)

voted as clean

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.

Dolphin's Nose one of the best views ever and super place to hang out. Dolphin's Nose is the last stop of the Coonoor road... You can see the views and have tea plantation all around and the place where you stand.

Dolphin's Nose is situated ten kilometers distance from Coonoor. We can see lot of tea estates on the way. View point is good. Lot of monkeys roaming there. We can see waterfall view from long distance. People can take photos in tea estates situated at parking area. Fruits, Spices, Tea shops are avialable for shopping. Small food joints avialable to eat. Toilet facility also available here.

"Mesmerizing place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted May 29, 2016
I have always been a wandering mountaineer and trekker from within. My wandering soul is the driving force that takes me to beautiful mountains nearby. I enjoy every bit of pure air of mountains, Connour is another find in southern India, one must visit this place who loves serenity of nature and wants distance from concrete jungle.

"Mesmerizing Mountains"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Mar 10, 2016
I and my few college friends planned to go to Ooty as it is near from our college. We went there by using train and bus and while returning we took toy train. We visited several places there but among them one was Dolphin's Nose point. It is called Dolphin's Nose because the tip of the mountains looks like it and we can see gigantic mountains left and right of it. It is a must must watch place for those who want to feel the nature closely.

"Mesmerising and relaxing place"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Feb 12, 2016
This is Dolphin's Nose. We came here with parents. We came here from Ooty. This place is filled with nature's beauty. Waterfall seen from this place is awesome. Here tea is very famous. Chilling weather and heaven like scenery from the top. I say one should come here because life is too short and one cannot find this type of place which is too quiet and silent.

  • Posted Jan 6, 2016
It was very nice, don't miss it. When I went it was sunny so I was unable to see all the viewpoints. Take instant photos if you want, some guys will be there for this. It will be very nice. You will get very good views.

"Nice place for evening walk"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 24, 2015
Dolphins Nose is about half hour bus journey from Coonoor bus stand. Then there is about 30-45 min walk to the nose. The scenery is obviously naturist with all Tea estates and dense trees. Good time to spend with your friends, along there are many shops with homemade chocolates, cocoa packets, etc. The evening time is good to visit the place. Don't forget to see the sleeping lady - a view of the top of the nearby mountain (hard to get it first time). If you are lucky(no mist) you can see the Mettupalayam road, train track and also a waterfall. And ofcourse the view is mind blowing.
