About Dukes Nose in Lonavala

One of the most popular attractions of Lonavala, Dukes Nose is a cliff that has beautiful views and a very interesting story attached to its name. Legend has it that the Duke of Wellington, who lived in the area back then, had a nose that resembled the shape of the cliff. The hooded shape of the cliff, which is nearly 800 foot tall, is also reminiscent of a cobra’s hood, thereby coaxing the locals to also call it by the moniker of Naagphani as well.

Dukes Nose point is not just a picturesque location, with gorgeous views of the Sahyadri Ranges in the Western Ghats, but is also a haven for trekking enthusiasts and for those who like rock climbing. There are plenty of Dukes Nose trek for novices as well as experts here, offering people a chance to commune with nature. The main trek starts from Khandala, and it takes nearly 14 hours to reach the top of the cliff, with a couple of stops in between to recharge your batteries. Even night treks are a very exciting possibility here, which starts from the base of the cliff and covers a little more than 7 kms. Other adventure activities at Dukes Nose include rappelling and ziplining, which are carried out by a handful of agents who offer secure services and great equipment on hire. The costs for Dukes Nose rappelling and ziplining vary from agent to agent, but the range is from INR 1200 to INR 2000 based on the activity.

It is also an ideal spot for picnics, and many locals and tourists spend hours here enjoying the view and the misty weather. There are also camping spots here, where people can spend a couple of nights enjoying their time away from the hustle bustle of life, in the lap of nature. It is a must visit spot for anybody visiting Lonavala, and should definitely be part of your itinerary.

    Richa's 3 days trip to Lonavala

    We chose Your Hotel Stay for our Mahabaleswar-Panchgani trip. Our trip began from Saturday morning. On Saturday we went around various places in Mahabaleswar. The elephant head point and the Shiv temple is something I would love to recommend. Just a walk away from Shiv temple is an archeological site which should not be missed. On this site there is a Shiv ling belong which Krishna river is flowing. The next day we went to Wai and this was recommended by driver. I will recommend this place. It is an unexplored tourist destination. The place is very cheap for boat rides and water sports. One must visit Dhom Dam for the nature's beauty and water sports. Wai also has a Ganesh temple. On the same day we went to Panchgani which has various points. I will suggest Table Top point where one can go and checkout tiger caves. Thanks to the driver's suggestion we got to see the beautiful town named Wai. People who are planning Mahabaleswar-Panchgani trip should also include Wai in the list. Our stay arrangements were made at West Hill hotel. The hotel is neat and clean. Hotel staff is courteous and polite. Only problem is that there is no lift and the restaurant is at 3rd floor. On weekends they play live music. The singer is really good. However I will suggest that the singer should interact more with audience and if requests are given then he should sing them sportingly A visit to Wai
