Totally Worth the effort !
Dec 2020
A really spectacular view of low hanging clouds suspended on the mountains giving an impression of just floating, drifting dreamily down to the green terrace. There is a very nice tea/juice shop at the view point for a little rest & from there its a 10 minute descent to the Dolphins Nose.

"BEAUTIFUL VIEW"
Oct 2019
Nice view of mountain.Dolphins nose is a rock hanging from Cliff which in shape of a dolphin's nose.You need to walk a little bit from the road to reach. 1 minute from this place we reach echo point which is a rock and has a breathtaking view of mountains and valley. Nice place to visit.

A bit tiring but an interesting hike
Jul 2019
It is a good long hike to reach the final point, Dolphin's nose. It will be tiring if you are not in good form or fit, as it involves ascent and decent.

There is a high chance that clouds could cover the Dolphin's nose and you will not be able to see anything. But if the sky is clear, the view will be mind blowing.

It is will be enjoyable if you are with friends, you can complete the hike with ease.

Can't Forget the beautiful journey to the adventurous Dolphin's Nose
Mar 2019
It was amazing trip. The was so beautiful. There was no polution and no plastic used in entire Kodaikanal as the plastic is banned. And We found the steps to climb the hill were really awesome and built naturally with tree roots and rocks. The way is really picturesque. And I coudln't stop taking the photographs. After reaching the peak point that is Dolphin's Nose it was more thrilling to stand on a peak rock and posing for a titanic style picture. Can't forget the memorable event.

Views are okay but you can get some good exercise while going down and up.
so go with water bottle and Kids and elders should not go ,if they are not very fit.
Not a mandatory thing to visit.

Not for Elders or Small Kids
Dec 2019
This place got no roads, steep slope with loose rocks and roots of trees is all there as a road. It's not for older people and definitely not with small kids of 2-3 Yrs old. The View when we went was blocked by all cloud and fog. On clear days it's worth going. As bit of adventure trek adds value. Take down some water u will need it.

mostly, do it for the exercise
Dec 2019
the Dolphin's Nose is interesting, but not, even with "Mountain View" and "Echo Rock", worth the walk. but, the exercise, and the fresh air, add up to a positive recommendation. (sadly, there's a lot of litter, especialy at the beginning of the walk.)

Long walk towards nothing
Mar 2019
You'll end up trekking a long way for a mediocre view, not worth the trek. You'll get a good view from Altaf's cafe. Don't bother,
