Dolphin's Nose, Coonoor Reviews
Dolphin nose view point is a camera man's delight. You can take as much photos as you want with different scenic views.The waterfall view adds to its beauty. The place has many monkeys so you need to take extra care of your bags. Overall a good location to add to your social media . Also you can take as many photos in the nearby tea gardens
Spectacular place. Road to this place is more beautiful than actual place. If fog is less then tea garden, dolphin nose shape mountain and a waterfall will be visible easily. A very peaceful place with some snacks' corner and small shopping market. Beware of monkeys as they can snatch belongings from your hand. For mobile network perspective, Reliance Jio worked best following Idea. Western toilet for ladies and Indian toilet for gents are available.
Well the journey to Dolphins Nose is more beautiful than destination. You cross through dark jungle and also tea plantation farms. You may be charged for clicks in them so be careful. There's a view of beautifull waterfall from the nose point. It's called Catherine Waterfall and you can go close to it but will be 1 hour drive from Dolphins Nose.
Very beautiful scenic place. U can see a narrow water fall on other side of view point. Beware of monkeys they stole food. If you are going during public holidays or season try to reach early else parking is a problem. This point is at dead end of road.
Though the place is worth the visit since the scenic beauty is good, it is marred by too much crowd and shops selling all kinds of stuff. Hence one cannot enjoy the view point. There is however a beautiful fall across which can be viewed if watched closely.
