Dolphin's Nose, Coonoor


Dolphin's Nose, as the name suggests, is a peak that resembles the shape of a dolphin’s nose. The view it affords is something mere words cannot elaborate and hence, is a destination travellers should visit while they are at Coonoor. You might have to trek a bit, but the ambience Dolphin’s Nose immerses you in is worth the effort. You can see many important landmarks in the Nilgiris from this point, including Catherine Falls, which is located in Kotagiri and is another hill station in the Nilgiris district.

But, do watch your step while on top of the rock, because on either sides of the rock are deep abysses. The vista offered by the viewpoint are sure to leave a spectator spellbound. Dolphin's Nose viewpoint is located at a distance of about 10-12 kilometres from Coonoor and lies close to Tiger Hill.
