Dolphin's Nose

#Hill in Coonoor

An amazing viewpoint of the high rise hills of Nilgiri in Dolphin's Nose, located a short distance from the main Coonoor city. The peak offers panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The nose can be reached by a short ride which is appealing to the skies. This mesmerizing location will always be etched in your memory.

The destination gets its name from the high end of the cliff protruding out into the thin air, resembling the shape of the nose of a dolphin. You can get breath taking views of the stunning Catherine Falls from here. Along with this, also enjoy wonderful views of the row by row tea plantations, a pleasing sight. The place is certainly worth a visit for those seeking some fresh and unpolluted air.

"We take bus from ooty and reach kunnoor by 1.00 pm ( i suggest train from ooty to kunnoor) then heading to bedfort from kunnoor. We hired a car from there. First we went for dolphin nose then when we come back we go for some tea estates and watch baisons then go for lambs rock then came back. Traveling route Ooty/mettupalayam > kunoor ( by bus or train) > bedfort ( bus or car) > dolphin nose ( car , i dont suggest three wheeler because of road) Tips 1.Watch all the way tea estate tops for baison if u want to see it. 2. Bring a good binocular for good view and good observation. 3. Dont keep any eatables in ur hand ( beware of monkeys)"
