  • The view from dolphin's nose is just awesome. You can see the greenery, valleys and plains all around. The scenery is breathtaking and offers a great view. It is a place that is not to be missed while...  more »
  • The view from here is good. Greenery spread wherever your eyes lead you. Cleanliness needed. The surrounding shopkeepers will almost pull you inside to stick their product to you. Beware of monkeys. 
  • Try and walk from the city to Dolphins nose. Its a 10 k trek and very beautiful along the tea estates. Nice tea store Glendale at the entry to Dolphins Nose.

  • The view is great, breath taking. But the to and fro travel if you are driving is 'breathtaking' as well. The road is very congested and is awfully time consuming. But it's a great experience
  • Superb view,one should not miss this place when coming to ooty. The route is ooty to connoor 18 kms and from there to dolphin nose 12kms. On the way to dolphin nose one can visit LAMBS ROCK to have another magnificent view.
  • Superb place, magnificent view, breathtaking view, just 12kms from Connor. On the way to dolphin nose visit Lambs rock, another magnificent view and one can see mettupalayam from this point.
  • There is hardly anything to see that is different from the things you may have seen on your way up here. They have completely sealed off this hill and added an entry fee which may be reasonable but this place increased the count of paid destinations to one too many. You can very well stand outside entry point and get a good view instead of buying the ticket.
  • Good views of the valley. Nothing much to roam around. Only one small view point and some hotels around the point . You can buy tea powder and chocolates at fairly reasonable rate compared to ooty.
