Kodaikanal tourist places have those names that you expect to find in storybooks. The aptly named ‘Dolphins nose’ is a rocky hill cliff that provides you a bird’s eye view of the breathtaking beauty that is Kodaikanal. It is a flast rock overlooking a deep cliff, with a shape like that of a Dolphin’s nose. The best time to visit this place is in the morning or early afternoon, as you can see the mist hanging longingly amongst the clouds.

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!). Dolphin's Nose viewpoint is a must on the itinerary of those looking for an adventurous add-on on their visit to Kodaikanal. Photography enthusiasts may also enjoy taking some landscape clicks from this beautiful viewpoint.

Stand on the viewing platform that faces the waterfall and watch the clear water spilling into a pool. Check out the rugged rock formations and verdant foliage that flank either side of the cliff. The platform is a great vantage point for taking photos so have your camera ready. Cross the road to see a more tranquil waterfall, which flows beneath a bridge.
