Dolphin Nose in Kodaikanal, Echo Rock and Mountain View

Magnificent morning on the second day of our Kodaikanal trip, keeping in mind the desire to investigate and see a greater amount of “The Gift of The Forest” city. In the wake of getting a robust breakfast close to the bus station as we expected less food spots at Vattakanal. As they were generally a traveling spots for individuals coming there. We got a taxi close to the Bus Stand and for 8 Kms he was charging us 400 INR. Despite the fact that we realized that was a little high we took as my companions were returning before supper and furthermore we didn’t have the foggiest idea how much the admission really was.


We drove from the city of Kodaikanal to Vattakanal a spot each adventurer would cherish as they enter it. We had 3 spots to visit here The Mountain View, Dolphin’s Nose and Echo Rock. The taxi fellow dropped us at the spot from where we should be on our foot to arrive at the 3 spots.

Before the muddled way began we previously had a mystery of the view which we will have a more critical gander at these perspectives. It was a fun and rough stroll as you would feel like a camel regardless of whether you attempt to walk typically. With the knocks made of tree roots nearly the entire way encompassed by colossal trees. Yet, appropriately fenced the entire path so individuals don’t lose all sense of direction in the center. There were bistros and furthermore an exceptional rentable thing – shoes, something never observed. And furthermore I saw a homestay in the way where I figure you can remain encompassed by the timberland around.

Mountain View

We arrived at our first stop the Mountain View with a bistro before which you can stay there tasting some tea getting a charge out of the delightful perspective on the spot. As we strolled towards the edge of the spot we were at the time of stunningness, to see those layers of mountains and the valley. Not an obvious scene with your unaided eyes but rather as I utilized my long range focal point to get a more critical look I saw houses on top of the mountains on the two sides.

Superb spots you can live on the planet, I don’t have the foggiest idea what that spot was called. In any case, on the off chance that somebody who thinks about that kindly told me in the remarks down beneath. Again you can take the optics at the spot for 5 INR to have the option to see a greater amount of the perspective.

In the wake of completing our lemonade at Mountain View Point we were en route to Dolphin’s Nose. The fundamental fascination of Vattakanal, the way was entirely unexpected from the one we just covered. We were encircled by these eucalyptus trees, which were not permitting the sun to enter the region. After a km, we were at the Dolphin’s Nose perspective as we saw numerous individuals around taking selfies on the perilous bluff. Which took after the nose of a dolphin, the cool wind made the spot more tranquil.

I too got my camera and went to the edge of the precipice, which was truly terrifying the profundity just made me temperamental. Furthermore, the go to return back wasn’t so natural from that point forward, however I made it beating the dread of stature. I once in a while feel I have survived and later a few perspectives make it return. Like this one for a second yet I had returned to ordinary later. Simply check the part where I was at the highest point of the Dolphin’s Nose and later as I turned I made the hurry to arrive at the other part, in the youtube video blog I made.

Reverberation Rock

Similarly as you stroll past the Dolphin’s Nose you will arrive at the tree which guides you to Echo Rock. The way here excessively changed with a smaller one with more trees encompassing you. Another 500 meters I think making it a 3 km journey in the wake of arriving at the Mountain Viewpoint. There were numerous stones set down there with individuals surrounding them clicking pictures with the amazing perspective around.

One gigantic rock was there in the spot with only one person on top of it. I excessively climbed the equivalent to get the best view so far with the cameras and the sack. Individuals managing me to be cautious as it was dangerous and they saw me running practically everywhere to make all the efforts I jar of the spot. It was superb however very alarming to remain on top of that rock, I attempted to yell my name from the Echo Rock. Perhaps there was some specialized blunder that day as nothing got returned in the wake of attempting twice.

Subsequent to investing some energy there I got back to join with my companions and head back to Kodaikanal. What’s more, goodbyes as they return to Bengaluru, however I was remaining for one more day. As Kodaikanal isn’t yet finished and the day as well.
