On 31st March - 1st April I went on Nag Tibba Trek, a yet another remarkable trek in the Shivaliks perched at 10000 feet. Among all the popular reasons that this trail is special for, I’d underline the fact that Nag Tibba Peak happens to be the highest & one of the most daunting points in the Lower Himalayan region.

Lush green meadows, terraced farms, and rocky terrain constitute this easy trail which fits among the top perfect weekend getaways from New Delhi.

As grueling its path is, the views around are equally soothing. Hence, an ideal therapy for any soul.

Dehradun to Pantwari Village is a 3.5-hour drive (90 km). The Mussoorie highway takes you straight to the quaint village tucked in the foothills in the Tehri Himalayas. Trek from Pantwari to the base camp is 7 km, which mostly flat & full of boulders. (Summer isn’t the best time to see the best of this place)

2 water points during the first 7 km stretch are the life saviors to catch some breath and refill your bottles. The best part about such treks is that water here is sourced straight from the mountains. Even if you are too slow it shouldn’t take you more than 4 hours to reach the base camp. Unlike the rest of the trial, the last 1 km leg right before the base camp is quite comforting because of the sprawling meadows en route, which is again nature’s delight for the trekkers.

Upon your arrival at the base camp, pitch your tent & prepare to soak yourself in the gripping views around. This site is all about the myriad of colorful tents, scenic vistas, herds of adorable sheeps grazing the pastures, and a dense forest in the backdrop from where originates the crisp mountain air. Sunset and moonrise views here are something that you aren’t going to forget for quite a long time.

The final 4 km leg from base camp to the top makes the highlight of the Nag Tibba Trek. The entire trail is gloriously studded with mountain vegetation. And you are absolutely going to love this stretch.

1 km before the summit there is a trail that rolls down the hillock to Nag Devta temple - a celebrated temple of Nag Devta in the region. Sitting atop this hillock close to the temple and marveling at the campsite & nature view around would leave you completely spellbound.

This 4 km stretch is doable in 3 hours! And when you get to the top, the views of snow-capped Kalannaag, Bandapuch, and Swargarohini peaks standing tall right in front, would humble you for sure.

My special thanks to Trek the Himalayas for conducting such a wonderful trip. Looking forward to taking more such trips with them in near future!

P.S - Unlike other Himalayan treks, this trek isn’t popular yet. Plan the Nag Tibba Trek before it becomes yet another mainstream place littered with garbage! You will get to see plenty of such sorry sights in the mountains.

It's a lovely short trek it's around 8 km of uphill climbing but on a rocky trail.
I booked the trek with Trek The Himalayas a very outstanding group for organising such treks our trek leader Mr. Anil Rawat and Ms Kavita are very supportive and during the trek they keep on encouraging the trekkers as well tough it's just a two days trek but for the first time trekkers it's moderate I won't say it's easy the climb is not very steep but due to the rocks the trail becomes difficult in places where you need to keep the balance.
Overall it's a small village with scenic beauty and you could soak in the weather if you like do carry warm clothes as this place remain cool even in march.
You need to start climbing for Nag Tibba from Pantwari village which is around 21 km from Mussorie
