Dolphin's Nose

                 It got this because there is a rock resembling to the appearance of the Dolphin's nose due to this reason it is named as Dolphin's Nose view point. It is one among the popular tourist spot in Coonoor. It is located at a distance of 12km away from the coonoor city. It is near to the Tiger hills. From this view point you can see the St.Catherine falls standing on the top site. The coonoor river can also be viewed from this place.

Dolphin nose viewpoint is one of the Prettiest locations in Coonoor. Unfortunately was very misty when we visited this place so we couldn't see too much and the waterfall was barely discernible. Try and pick a good clear day to enjoy the views.

Nice place but crowded.There are more monkeys in and around this place so keep your things safely. The way to Dolphin's nose is very tight and it takes more time to reach by four wheeler. If possible take a two wheeler on rent.The crowd can never be a bother when you want to experience the Nature's beauty.

Dolphin nose is a good viewpoint of Nilgiris. It is located 10 km from Coonoor. The drive to this spot is Good but the road is narrow. The parking area is limited. There are only a few shops available near to this spot which provides light snacks and refreshment. The spot has a lot of monkeys. A good place for photography.

Dolphin nose is a viewpoint in Coonoor. You can see the view of some villages and Catherine waterfalls can be seen from this viewpoint. Good atmosphere in the late evening and early morning before the sunset and sunrise.

The Dolphin's nose view point is in shape of Dolphin's nose. You can see great views of the deep valley and the long Catherine Water falls.I would suggest visiting this place only if you have spare time otherwise there are better places in Ooty and Coonoor.

Dolphin Nose is a nice viewpoint. It takes some effort to climb to the top of this view point, but the views are absolutely stunning.It also offers a spectacular view of the tea gardens and mountains. Visit during the sunny days to get the clear view. It will be disappointing on a cloudy day with the mist blocking the view.

Dolphin nose is a huge rock that resembles the nose of the dolphin. Parking space is little so you will find difficult to park the cover especially during season time. Oil factory is on the way so don't forget to visit. The drive to this place will be scenic and the view will be amazing. You have a nice sitting area overlooking for Catherine falls. Many shops are available for shopping.

The huge rock that resembles the nose of a dolphin so that it named as Dolphin nose viewpoint.The clouds are floating in the mountains and fully surrounded by tea gardens. So it is the best place for photography. The view from this place is truly spectacular. Carry food with you as there are no good restaurants in this place.Even like basic amenities like restrooms are not available.

Dolphin Nose is the best viewpoint in Coonoor. You can view Catherine water falls from here.The drive to this viewpoint is excellent with lush green tea plantation surroundings.The roads are narrow, so better you can go early morning to avoid traffic.There is a small tower where you can enjoy a clear view.Totally it is worth to visit.There is no shops or restaurant available here.

It's a must place to inflict in Coonoor. The drive amidst the tea plantation is really amazing. After reaching the viewpoint, you can see the big waterfalls such as Catherine fall and Law fall which gives a visual treat to your eyes.There are a lot of monkeys so be aware of that.If you have binoculars don't forget to bring them.

Dolphin Nose is a nice view point and it offers a superb view.It is the best place for nature lovers, you can take beautiful snaps, its surroundings and sceneries are an excellent one.Beware of monkeys and be careful if you carry food items.There is a tea shop, better avoid getting tea powder from this shops because the quality is not good.Prefer buying from Tea factory in Ooty or Coonoor areas.
