  • Trip introduction

    This high-intensity, short-duration adventure is all you need on a weekend. You'll leave the city behind and travel to the legendary Duke's Nose in Lonavala. The trek takes you up to a pinnacle overlooking the rest of the valley around, and then 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. This is the highest point in the area, so you can imagine the views you'll get. Get a look at the iconic Mumbai-Pune expressway snaking through the hills, as well as rolling hills, the train tracks, and the peaks around you. The hills are usually shrouded in mist, and you'll get plenty of photo opportunities, but the highlight is definitely your rappelling session.
