About Dolphin's Nose

67%
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.

"Wonderful place to enjoy the weather"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
This is the most beautiful place I never seen before in south India each and every part of the journey is awesome. The clouds are floating and moving on the Nilgiri mountains and the tea gardens around the Dolphin's Nose are best place for photography.

"Spectacular view from the spot"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This is really a very inspiring place to go that is really on a high spot in the Nilgiris. It is around 10 km from Coonoor and is about 1000 ft above sea level. It gives you a great view of the valley and the tea gardens. The view is truly spectacular.

"Good place"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Nov 23, 2014
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.
