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 beautiful 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 flavor 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, 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

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

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.
