  • Trip introduction

    Escape the city for a spectacular weekend adventure! Go on a fun night trek that is short, but takes you to Duke's Nose, the highest point in Lonavala. Enjoy a bonfire with friends, and settle into tents for the night. In the morning, you'll wake up to incredible views from the top of the Duke's Nose pinnacle. After breakfast, you'll be strapped into a harness and sent over the edge of the pinnacle! The descent is steep, (but safe, thanks to your equipment) and you'll reach a horizontal crevice with a ledge, where you and your team will carefully walk around the mountain, remaining roped up for safety.

    Your trek takes about an hour; and you'll be rappelling from a height of 350 feet, traversing about 1000 feet. This is an adventure like no other!

    Destination

    Duke’s nose is a huge pinnacle located near Khandala, and is visible on the way from Mumbai to Pune. At night, you'll see the headlights of vehicles driving on the iconic Mumbai-Pune expressway, a train occasionally chugs past on the tracks nearby, and the hills around are shrouded in mist. You'll wake up to a dewy morning on top of the pinnacle, and spend the rest of the day exploring the rocks as you're rappel down a steep surface.
