We skipped our next stop which was Pillar Rocks as it was already 3 pm and the foggy weather was giving us no view at all. Instead we headed towards Dolphin's Nose and it turned out to be my favourite place in Kodaikanal. You will get beautiful views from many places in Kodaikanal but it is only here that you will be able to be a part of the view. We had to hike around 2km downhill to reach the Dolphin's Nose and the Echo Point. We also crossed another view point on the way.
The view from the Dolphin's Nose with the rock jutting out to a sharp drop was amazing. Do try out walking till the edge and taking photos but take utmost precaution in doing so and only go one person at a time. Luckily the weathered cleared a lot by the time we completed our hike. We captured our cover photos from the Dolphin's Nose and spent some time chilling near the Echo Point.
The return uphill hike was a bit tiring for my friends but it will be a cakewalk for people hitting the gym regularly. I remember climbing 20 minutes before and already completing my maggi in a nearby stall before the others could climb up. I highly recommend this hike to youngsters with average fitness....but do avoid it if you are with children or elders. Also wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
