You could take a taxi, but to be honest the walk there (a couple of hours from Kodaikanal) is the best bit. The hippy village of Vattakanal is pleasant enough but it's a bit like stepping back into 60's San Francisco.

Its best if you come during anytime but winter. Awesome unhindered view of valley and national forest. Can see many waterfall from this viewpoint. But you will get disapponted during winter due to thick fog. Ao avoid it during Nov-Feb

In my opinion, the point is not really like a Dolphin's nose. It is Wattaikanal which is some 8 kms or so from Kodai and you need a vehicle unless you want to walk for 2 hours. There are no buses. The walk to the...More

This place offers beautiful views of the valley. One needs to travel to Vattakanal by road and from there a short trek downhills will lead to view points like Mountain view, Dolphin's nose as well as Echo point. Great view of the valley from Dolphin's...More

Cars go up to very close to this point then there is walk down hill for 15-20 minutes to reach view point. You can ask for direction in town on how to reach there
