How to reach from Mumbai?

About Dukes Nose :

Duke's nose stands approximately 2350ft above sea level 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.

Why should you choose Dukes Nose?

  • Length: It doesn't get bigger than this. The rappelling length here is 350ft which is one of the biggest you can get.
  • 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 the 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 ways 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.
