Dolphin's Nose is flat rock projecting over a breathtaking chasm 6,600 feet deep. It is an undisturbed area 1 kilometer down a very steep rocky trail beginning soon after Pambar Bridge. Orange juice vendors along the trail offer a welcome rest stop. Beautiful views of steep rocky escarpments rising from the plains can be seen.

  • Beautiful place, this is covered with fog and trees. One need to trek down the hill near about 2km. Down the hill is easy as compared to uphill, sometime the path is very steep and sleepy. But it's worth it. There is also a Echo point, 5 minute from Dolphin Nose. That is also a beautiful place. On the way to dolphin nose, there are number of stalls selling water, cold drink, and Maggie.
  • View in winter is not visible because of fog...you can get a very good view if you there in spring or summer.. and yes you have to walk a lot through the rough roads..as it is in between the hills.. It makes us so tired in winter.. you can go easily but when you return u will have to rest at time to time before you reach up.. but still the view is worth it😍😍❤️❤️
