Beautiful floating through mountains and a fine trek.

Dolphin’s nose is a mount’s (B)peak that is barely visible when you walk up and down (actually, trekking) for about 2.5 KM from a road point where the car or tour operator drops you. Remember to carry plenty of water and snacks as nothing is available enroute. The mountain range in layers of blue hue can be seen on a clear and fog free day. Fog always moves around and be patient and you will see the nose and the mountains from a vantage point.

Those who love to trek can visit the place, no such things to see. Mountain view is cool, as usual you can feel the clouds passing by, can witness pine trees on the way to dolphin nose.

You have to do light trek for around 2 km one way to reach this place. Sometimes the trek route is quite steep and you have to watch your step carefully....but overall it was quite fun. On the way there is a view point providing splendid views of the surroundings....however you have to go further down to reach the actual Dolphin's Nose. Trust me the view from the Dolphin's Nose is just amazing. You take stand at the edge of the cliff and ask someone to take your pic. We felt as if we are at the end of the world. This going to the tip of the Dolphin's Nose might be a bit of a challenge for people with fear of heights like me but I would suggest don't look down and go slow.....and ask your friends to click quickly. A few meters away from the dolphin's nose lies the echo point......we enjoyed this mini-trek a lot and would highly recommend this to young tourists. However try to wear trek-friendly shoes as otherwise you have high possibility of slipping. Also though the cab drivers there take this tour as a separate day activity.....I would recommend....try to negotiate with them and club this with another day tour like the one with Guna Caves, Pine forest etc. You can save a lot of time if you do so.

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 slippery. 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.

Its pretty much on the way to other attractions and nothing too great about it. The view is good during nice weather and would not recommend carving out time for it. Can be done if you have time to spare.
