Dukes Nose 350 Feet Rappelling & 200 Feet Valley Crossing

Dukes Nose, at Khandala near Lonavala
1 Day

Event Overview

Nagphani, later known as Duke’s Nose after Duke Wellington, is a cliff at Khandala near Lonavala. The Cliff is pointed like a snakes pointed head portion (hood) and hence the name Nagphani (Nag means snake and phani means hood). The name Dukes ‘nose is derived as the cliff looked like the shape of the Duke. This is a marvelous trekking spot between Khandala & Lonavala. Adventurous trekking is highly essential to reach the Duke’s nose via Khandala. Climbing from Khandala is a good getaway for adventurous trekking that can be done under 4 hours & get down towards Kurvande Village in just 45 Minutes. Just keep your water bottles filled to the brim always as drinkable water is difficult to be found on the way and enjoy the climb to the Cobra's Hood. Right on the top of the Duke's Nose is a small temple of Lord Shiva.
Valley crossing from Dukes Nose to Duchess Nose is a great fun due to roaring winds, Foggy atmosphere & of course Deep Valley. Through yourself in a Valley with all technical gears n of course an Expert Team of Organizers.
