Dolphin's Nose Point

#Sight Seeing in Kodaikanal

Dolphin's Nose is flat rock projecting over a breathtaking chasm 6,600 feet (2,000 m) deep. It is an undisturbed area 1km down a very steep rocky trail beginning soon after Pambar Bridge. Orange juice vendors along the trail offer a welcome rest stop.

Beautiful views of steep rocky escarpments rising from the plains can be seen. The old village of Vellagavi can be reached through a rugged bridle path here. A short paved walkway leads from the road here to Pambar falls.

"I call it 'the edge of the world'. Beautiful view point. Should be very careful to reach the tip. There is a 20 min walk to this view point from where vehicles can reach. The terrain is little though. Everyone gets tired walking to this place but it's worth the effort. "

"Beauty lies in the nature it is 100% true when you get this place, you see tress which are there from centuries, I loved the scenery Caution : people with leg pains and joint pains avoid this place. The way is too narrow and to deep to climb back.. I suggest only youngster can go.. "

"It's gud if u love trekking. The path is tricky but the view is nice. It's a very tiring trek and time taking, at least 3hrs to go and come back. Better to go and repent than not go and repent. "
