The Dolphin's Nose viewpoint in Kodaikanal is based on a flat, protruding piece of rock that is shaped like a dolphin's nose. This forms a visible cliff at the height of 6,600 feet, where you can experience Kodaikanal at its best - plunging valleys, rugged terrain, clear skies, and the splendor of green.
Reaching this spot requires a moderate level 3 km long trek through the pines and rocks of the Palani Hill Range. It is possible to explore a nearby waterfall and a local village along the way.
Fruit juice vendors and food stalls occasionally dot the landscape, but the items are relatively expensive up here. Overall, Dolphin's Nose constitutes a half-day trip into the mountains for a rejuvenating morning (or evening!).
