  • Nice peak. The drive to Dolphin's nose itself is beautiful. On the way, you will come across tea estates where they explain the parts of leaves making green and white tea. Another spot has a creek...

  • Super scenery, especially during or after monsoon showers. No climbing. View Point at two levels offer breath taking views. You can view scenery through Telescope for a small price. Toilet available, but not ideally situated nor maintained well. Local shops here sell toys, chocolates, spices and some travel accessories. You can also visit tea estate here. Parking available.
  • Not recommended. Definitely not worth the 20₹ entry ticket and parking ticket 20₹ Didn’t like the view point that much, felt it similar to what we see on the route. Lamb view point is 10 times better Best way to visit this place is, start travelling to dolphin nose and after reaching take u turn and go back. The route is very scenic.
