 It  is  about  12  kms.  from  Coonoor  bus  stand  situated  near  Tiger  Hills.  It  is  unique rock  of  tremendous  proportions,  jutting  out  of  the  face  of  hill  side  in  the  formation  which  its name  suggests. The view here is extremely grand and well repays the exertion of getting there. Left and right are great ravines; on the one side is seen an excellent view of the magnificent St. Catherine's Falls with their stream continuing several thousand metres below, while on the other, the familiar Coonoor stream  meets the stream  from Kotagiri. They together tribute to the great Bhavani river. In fact, we are metres away from the Nose opposite to it and separated in between by the deep valley that is covered with the beautiful greenary and mash of tree tops.
