Duke’s Nose is a popular viewpoint located about 7 kilometres from Lonavala. It is hugely famous for hiking and its picturesque location. Tourists often visit the landmark to get a panoramic view of the beautiful Sahyadri Ranges, the splendid valleys and the dense forests that cover the Sahyadris. The landmark often serves as an ideal picnic spot for tourists exploring Lonavala.
The name Duke's Nose was derived from the Duke of Wellington, whose nose resembled the shape of the cliff. Locals call it Naagphani or the Cobra's Hood going by the shape of the cliff. A panoramic view of Duke's Nose is visible from the Sunset Point in Khandala. People travelling from Mumbai to Pune or vice versa often take a pit stop here to get a mesmerizing view of the valley.
