  • Very nice place with good view of the surrounding valley. Local cab drivers would show only Lamb's rock and ask you to skip this place telling its same. But don't believe them. This place is good. The road to reach this place is also very beautiful. There are no restaurants nearby
  • almost always covered in fog which makes it hard to see anything. Good view beautiful during the sunset. one of the most pristine views of the area. the view of the valley from up here looks brilliant and the weather is windy and cool. the Fog sets in later on and early on in the morning. so you go to get here very early.
  • Nice view point nestled among tea gardens in coonoor...not a whole lot to do.. But enjoy a few views from the mountain top... A guy renting the telescope for a few bucks... But I guess typical hill station view point... Beware of the monkeys though... They'll snatch at any shiny snack bag...
  • Awesome place. If you visit Ooty; take a day in hand and visit Coonoor. Come to this place. The silence of the hills and the gorgeous view will definitely blow away your mind. This place is called Dolphins nose point because of its shape. Feels like you are standing at the edge of a giant dolphins nose with hills on the three sides. Visitors are requested to visit on a clear sunny day to enjoy the view. If you visit on a cloudy day you wont be able to see anything. Binocular facility is also available there but you have to pay extra to use it.
  • Dolphin's nose is located in Connor. It is called dolphin's nose as it's shape is like dolphin's nose which is visible from saint Catherine waterfall located at a distance of 35 km from dolphin's nose This place is a must visit. You can enjoy the weather and the height. Please be careful with your eatable as many monkey's will be ready to grab them. There is a entry ticket of 10 rupees and a parking charge of 30 rupees as on 12th March 2018.
