About The Event

The rains offer the best reason for anyone to make a quick getaway. So this time we planned a trek to Duke’s Nose as roaring winds & misty fog makes the trekking trail an adventurous one. Duke’s nose former 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 Nagphani (Nag means snake and phani means hood). It’s being renamed after Sir Duke Wellington’s Pointed Nose. Nature makes you feel so insignificant at times; you can’t help but continue to stare at its beauty. There’s a small temple on top of the rock and ample space to just lie down and stare at the sky. If you’re in Lonavala this is a place you must visit. Duke’s Nose can actually be seen from the Mumbai-Pune expressway.

 

Difficulty Level - Easy.
