Dukes Nose near Khandala, which is named after Duke Wellington, is a huge pinnacle seen while traveling from Mumbai to Pune. The sight from the 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.
