Tiger Point Trek

Not to be confused with neighbouring Lion Point, Tiger Point or Tiger's Leap, earns its name from keen observers who noticed its resemblance to that of a leaping tiger. Visitors during the monsoon season can revel in the sight of natural waterfalls formed along the many ridges of the valley. This Lonavala trekking point is one of the best treks amongst adventure-seekers.

Duke's Nose Point Trek

Another one of the many trekking places in Lonavala is the Duke's Nose Point. It got its name from Arthur Wellesley - the first Duke of Wellington. It is also called Nagphani, as the cliff resembles the flared hood of a cobra. The climb and descent take less than 5 hours, which makes it perfect for those looking to take a day off to enjoy gorgeous sceneries.
