About Dolphin's Nose in Coonoor

Dolphin's Nose Coonoor is one of the favourite places in Coonoor for families and honeymooners. Set amidst the rolling hills of the Nilgiris Hills or Blue Mountains of Tamil Nadu, Dolphin’s Nose View Point in Coonoor is a popular natural attraction for tourists. With an altitude of 1,550 metres, this stunning viewpoint in Coonoor allows a spectacular view of rolling hills covered with tea estates and morning mist stretching for miles and miles. The weather at Dolphin's Nose is misty in the monsoons and clear in the summer season. It’s named so because the tip of its peak resembles a dolphin nose. Coonoor to Dolphin's Nose distance of 10 km can be covered in about 20 minutes.

Dolphin Nose in Coonoor overshadows all other viewpoints in Coonoor. With an unobstructed view of Catherine Waterfalls in Coonoor, Dolphin’s Nose is an ideal spot to take in vast vistas of Nilgiri Mountains and quaint villages in the distance. Trek to Catherine Waterfalls begins near the Dolphin’s Nose. This huge rock outcrop is skirted by ravines on both sides and it’s an ideal spot to savour breathtaking views of the surrounding Nilgiri Hills.

The drive from Coonoor to Dolphin’s Nose viewpoint is particularly rewarding with aromatic tea estates and sharp hairpin turns. Dolphin’s Nose is about 12 km from the main centre of Coonoor. Along the road between Coonoor and Dolphin’s Nose Viewpoint, Lamb’s Rock is another popular tourist attraction. There are a few shops where tourists can enjoy tea and snacks while admiring the views. Dolphin's Nose Coonoor timings are from sunrise to sunset.

Watching a sunset or sunrise from Dolphin's Nose one of the best things to do in Coonoor. Dolphin’s Nose is located near Tiger Hills, Lamb’s Rock, Catherine Falls, and Kotagiri – other major tourist places in Coonoor.

    No clarification and communication between travel agent and driver. If the places were not covered on the day 1, those will not be covered on day2?? And this package was quoted very expensive as its just 2n 3d with 3 star hotel... dont rely on drivers as they just want their commission in every sale
    . Everywhere we cannot beg driver and travel agent always. Apart from this hotel is good and bit expensive. Honeymoon inclusion is ok but not as they charge. Finally i didnt get any offers. Previously i use to get coupons but now its too worst no coupons at all
