Dolphin's Nose Overview

Ranked 9 of 49 sightseeing in Ooty

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.

Well the journey to Dolphins Nose is more beautiful than destination.

Well the journey to Dolphins Nose is more beautiful than destination. You cross through dark jungle and also tea plantation farms. You may be charged for clicks in them so be careful. There's a view of beautifull waterfall from the nose point. It's called Catherine Waterfall and you can go close to it but will be 1 hour drive from Dolphins Nose. If you are going during public holidays or season try to reach early else parking is a problem. Aware of monkeys. You can buy different flavour of tea and spices for you home.

Mesmerizing place

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. Connuur is another find in southern India. One must visit this place who loves serenity of nature and wants distance from concrete jungle.

Mesmerizing Mountains

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 dophin'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

This is dolphins nose. We came here with parents. We came here from ooty. This place is filled with natures beauty. Water fall 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 do quiet and silent.
