Dukes Nose near Khandala which is named after Duke Wellington, is a huge pinnacle seen while traveling from Mumbai to Pune. The sight from top is 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's famous for rappelling, rock climbing and valley crossing activities.
What is Rappelling?
A descent from a height, such as a cliff or wall, in which one slides down an anchored rope and applies friction to control one's speed by means of a specialized device. In all to make the activity safe there are three people involved in this activity,
1. The person on the top holding your line has control over your descent .
2. You have a control over the speed of descent.
3. The person waiting below.
Why Duke's Nose?
Once down the 350ft patch wiping off panic sweats, the real adventure starts. A 1000ft traverse that awaits with a 700ft of sheer drop. The traverse goes through patches where you need to lean down and even crawl.
