A scenic drive along the winding ghat-roads of Coonoor will take you to Dolphin’s Nose, a viewpoint that offers an enthralling view of the blue mountains of Nilgiris and the lush green tea estates on its slopes. Let your eyes and mind freely wander along the marvellous view of unending plains and lush green hillocks from the vantage point Dolphin Nose offers.

At 6600 ft above sea level, the view from the dolphin’s nose is breath-taking. An ideal spot for those interested in trekking, the trail to the Dolphin’s Nose covers a distance of 3 kms in the Palani Hill Range. This view point is a favourite among the tourists who come to adore the glory of the queen of hill-stations. Kodaikanal proudly fosters this location as an ideal spot from which one may marvel at the glory of its lush green landscapes, rough terrains, and the rugged charm of the towns.

The place gets its name because of the protruding flat rock that resembles the nose of a dolphin. It is from this point that you can get the best view of the valleys beneath. A visit to this view point is sure to be promising as the view itself is not the only offering it makes. The trail up to the dolphin’s nose is challenging enough to get you excited but not so difficult that it would tire you. The hike up to this point has a calming effect as it is adorned by elegant pine trees and the crisp, cool fog that sets Kodaikanal a step above any other hill station. Do not forget to stop on your way to take a look at the small waterfalls that giggle along this trail.

Walk a little further from the view point and you will find yourself at the Dolphin’s Nose Echo Point, from where you can marvel at the mystery of Mother Nature as its rich terrain and valleys return to you any sound you send it, but only after adding its own flavour of magic. The backdrop of mountains and clouds is ideal if you want to take photos and capture a time well spent. This site is perfect for soaking in the soothing charisma of nature. It is also sure to make you connect with yourself and will help you realize how you also are a part of the mysterious powers of nature.
