  • A breathtaking view with a breathtaking trek. Awesome view along the roads. The Trek starts with downward trekking. 95% of the road you take to reach Dolphin's nose is downward. Terrain information : ...  more »
  • Way down to dolphin nose is easy. But it becomes harder while returning. So carry some water. You have shop throughout the path where you can get some indigenous fruits and cold drinks.  more »
  • If you are ready to walk down hill and up hill (the way back), it’s a breathtaking viewpoint. It is not waste of energy, well you can recharge as long as you want from the cool drink shops.  more »

  • It can be reached only via half an hour "very extensive" trek from the car parking. The street to the car parking is very narrow for even 2 cars. However, the view is splendid, if one manages to reach the dolphin nose point. Another attraction - "Echo Rock" is just behind the dolphin rock. Great for photography enthusiasts. However, be careful and always watch your step, the place is extremely dangerous.
  • Go during a non peak hour because you've to trek down from a place where there's no car parking. The trek is for about half an hour and is quite challenging. Although the dolphin nose point is not worth the trek the path to the dolphin nose is beautiful. Lot of shops with drinks/snacks available.
  • Good place. It's hell of a job to drive till the end point due to narrow road and a lot of vehicles. After this end point you will have to walk downwards. Once you reach there, it's beautiful. Driving is the worst part.
  • Dolphin nose is a spectacular place of interest in kodaikanal which is also a adventurous spot too, I visited here in the month of January so the whether was very cold and the vision was intervened by fog and that was a wonderful experience. The way to dolphin nose is very much adventurous and one side of the two feet path is steep slope so be careful, better to not bring children, no enough safety measures and no forest guards
  • Don't stop with dolphins nose, go to the echo point. It's very good during off season. Go as early as possible as traffic and temperature increases and the roads are too narrow. There is no opening time for it. For adventure trekkers, from the dolphin nose there is a village called "vellagavi" take around 4 hours ( up and down).
