Our trip to Lonavala was all about team-building. In fact, the whole outing was termed as the “Personal Growth Lab.” The outdoor group activities were planned by an organization called High Places and included:

  1. A trek to Duke’s Nose
  2. A treasure hunt and
  3. An assault course

The trek to Duke’s Nose was quite good. Duke’s Nose is an 800-foot monolith. It’s got a 500-foot bottom and a 300-foot top! I was mesmerized the moment I saw this monster of a rock. Nature makes you feel so insignificant at times; you can’t help but continue to stare at this beauty. One of the members of the High Places team told me that they had climbed this rock vertically last year. I envy them. There’s a small temple on top of the rock and ample space to just lie down and stare at the sky. If you’re in Lonavala this is a place you must visit. Duke’s Nose can actually be seen from the Mumbai-Pune expressway.
