Description

 

Duke’s Nose, also known as Nagphani is a cliff at Khandala near Lonavala. The cliff is pointed like a snake’s pointed head portion (hood) and hence the name.  A simple trek to reach the summit is from the southern approach. The trekker is rewarded with amazing views of the Mumbai-Pune road and rail corridors, as well as great views of Khandala and the surrounding Sahyadri peaks.
