Located about 12 km away from Coonoor is the Dolphin's Nose about 1,500 meters above sea level. The tip of the peak of this enormous rock resembles a dolphin's nose and this is one of the most visited tourist spots in The Nilgiris District of Tamil Nadu. It is set amidst the rolling hills of the Nilgiris Hills (or the Blue Mountains). The gigantic rock formation is entirely unprecedented. There are enormous canyons found on both the sides of the destination and there is a clear view of the Catherine Falls, another popular tourist destination with its ongoing current several thousand meters below, which is located at a short distance from the Dolphin's Nose.
The best part about the spot is the tea plantations and the hairpin turns on the way. This striking spot also allows a panoramic view of the hills that are covered with tea plantations. Thus, the view of the Catherine Waterfalls, Nilgiris Hills, and the unobstructed view of the quaint villages, the ravines on both the sides and the scenery makes the Dolphin's Nose one of the best viewpoints in Coonoor. People tend to watch the sunrise and the sunset from this location. It is located near Tiger Hills, Lamb’s Rock, Catherine Falls, and Kotagiri - some other major tourist places in Coonoor.
