Dukes Nose is a huge pinnacle near Khandala, named after Duke Wellington, whose ample nose it resembles. Also known as Nagphani, it is the cliff shaped as a Snake's Head.
The sights from top are unique and magnificent as one sees a vast landscape and the winding Mumbai-Pune Expressway cutting through the ghats and trains chugging along the tracks. It is known to be one of the simplest treks around Lonavala region!
