Description

Duke's Nose is 12 km away from Lonavla, clearly visible from the highway while travelling between Mumbai and Pune. It is a huge pinnacle and the sight from top is unique & magnificent as one sees a vast landscape and the winding Mumbai-Pune expressway cutting through the ghats and trains chugging along the tracks. This landmark in Khandala is popular with hikers. Also known locally as Naagphani (Cobra's Hood), the cliff owes its name to the Duke of Wellington, whose ample nose it resembles. 

Rappelling is a method of a quick and safe descend after a climb. It’s an act of descending a mountain face by sliding down a rope, which is attached to a body harness and fastened to an overhead projection, with sufficient friction provided as to make the speed of descent controllable. The rappelling part is not difficult part, but the real fun begins once you rappel down wiping off your sweats from your head, only to find a 1000ft exposed cliff traverse.
