Countryside Adventures holiday is coming up with its fourth trek for this monsoon on 29 July, which is to Dukes Nose! As one drives up to Khandala, Duke’s Nose is hard to miss. It is the prominent rock structure which looms to the right — the very top of this is our destination! Legend has it that it was named after the Duke of Wellington whose nose allegedly resembled the shape of the cliff. The trek starts at Kurvande village, after which the walk becomes slightly steeper stepping over craggy rocks to scale the top. This is a beautiful trek especially when accompanied by wind and rain.
