The Biggest Rappelling of Lonavala - Dukes Nose
Dukes nose stands approximately 2350ft above sea level 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. The event can be done even by first timers who are fit in general.
Why you should choose Dukes Nose?
The traverse : The 1000ft cliff traverse is more exciting than the rappelling, once you rappel down you will be made to traverse alongside a cliff which is exposed on one side with 500ft of valley. All this while you are attached to a safety rope.
Hike : A one hour trek to the top is an experience in itself.
Food : Get a taste of the local delicacies.
Health : Hiking/Trekking is one of the best way to stay in good shape and good health.
Comfort zone : Coming out from our closets to meet new people, share travel stories and ideas is what Team Mapping Journeys offers and looks for.
