Kotte Kunnu (Mount Dill) point (W India)

Characteristics

Description

Kotte Kunnu, a bluff point 52m high, at the SW extremity of a headland, is joined to the more elevated land by a low neck; a fort lies on Kotte Kunnu. Mount Dill Light (Kotte Kunna Light) is shown from a white triangular stone tower with red bands on the bluff point.

A stranded wreck lies 2 miles NNW; a dangerous wreck lies 3 miles SSE from Mount Dill Light.

The coast from Mount Dill to Cannanore, about 13 miles SE, is sandy and fringed with coconut palms. The Valapattanam River, marked on the N side of its entrance by a clump of casuarina trees, flows into the sea about 7 miles SE of Mount Dill. The bar at the entrance to the river has a least depth of 1.2m, and is subject to seasonal change.

Azhikal Light is shown at the S side of the entrance. Storm signals are displayed near the light.
