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.

    Ashrivastava's 4 days trip to Coonoor

    What a wonderful experience! Overall everything was Excellent. My best tour operator yet. The itinerary was carefully thought through and well balanced. This was the first time I made my booking through Travel Triangle and BookItForgetIt and I had a great and lifetime experience. Everything was smoo
    th and as per the plan. My trip was planned by Sahil and he was very professional and polite and was in touch throughout the journey. I have recommended his name to my friends and family for the upcoming travel plans. I would highly recommend his name for any trip plans. On special request, Driver was very professional, well trained, outstanding - passionate, informative, engaging and entertaining. He had a great knowledge of near by places/site scenes and mouth watering restaurants. Also, the stay in resort (booked as per my choice) was comfortable and beyond the expectations. Special Thanks to Sahil who carefully guided me for this trip especially at the Covid time when most of the spots was locked down. Thanks Travel Triangle for the wonderful experience. Keep up the good work and make your customer happy. Will catch you soon! Thanks again! – Arpit What a wonderful experience! Overall everything was Excellent. My best tour operator yet.
