  • We take bus from ooty and reach kunnoor by 1.00 pm ( i suggest train from ooty to kunnoor) then heading to bedfort from kunnoor. We hired a car from there. First we went for dolphin nose then when we come back we go for some tea estates and watch baisons then go for lambs rock then came back. Traveling route Ooty/mettupalayam > kunoor ( by bus or train) > bedfort ( bus or car) > dolphin nose ( car , i dont suggest three wheeler because of road) Tips 1.Watch all the way tea estate tops for baison if u want to see it. 2. Bring a good binocular for good view and good observation. 3. Dont keep any eatables in ur hand ( beware of monkeys)
  • We have to travell 19 km from ooty to reach here to see some rocks and small water fall, but the way to dolphins nose is great
  • One time visit to tick the box for places visited. Although the view is good, monkey menace does not let you enjoy it in essence.
  • If Ooty isn't amazing you enough, drive to Coonoor and you get to stop at this place. Beautiful landscape view, great for landscape photography.
  • Nice green and peaceful place to visit. Place's natural architecture is awesome. You can pay for binocular service here to watch the green rocky valleys. If you are going Ooty and you have extra time to enjoy, don't forget to visit this place.
