NAG TIBBA TREK
Perfect for beginner and mature trekkers alike, Nag Tibba trek offers thrilling views of the Himalayan ranges accomplished over a mere weekend. Nag Tibba translates to the Serpent Peak and the inhabitants of this region worship the ‘Nag Devta’ or ‘Serpent God’ for safekeeping of their cattle from any harm. The Summit of Nag Tibba trek is at an altitude of 3,033 metres (9,915 feet). The weather of this region remains pleasant during the summers and very cold in the winters. The temperature varies from 8 to 17 degrees in the daytime and -7 to 7 degrees in the nighttime depending on the season you visit. The best time to embark on this trek is from September to March, but if you’re an adventurer at heart, any time might be worthy of this weekend trail!
An amicable route of 85 kilometers from Dehradun to Pantwari village takes you through Mussoorie, Kempty falls, along the Yamuna River Valley. The four-hour drive is spent relaxing and absorbing the breathtaking views your vehicle drives you through. From Pantwari village, you initiate your trek. As you walk on, your trekking road will slowly transition into a rough forest trail. While crossing the forest areas, you will often come across motorable roads made for vehicles to climb up to the base camp.
A few kilometers into the trek, you’ll find The Goat Village, a heaven curated in the hills of Garhwal hills at an altitude of 2000 meters. Locals here are engaged in goat farming. Proceeding some more (two kilometers ahead), you’ll reach your destination for the day. Nearby you will spot the Nag Tibba temple, where you may pay your respects to the Snake God, who has a significant position in the Human Mythology and beliefs.
The base camp is at the edge of a forest, a clear meadow with fresh air and the astonishing view of the transparent skies and high-altitude meadows. Post dinner, relax under the stars with your chai or coffee in your hand. Sleep tight and get excited for the next day, a lot more beauty yet to be experienced! The next day will call for some great enthusiasm from your side. Wake to an early morning and after having your breakfast, proceed upwards.
It’s going to get steeper before it gets better. There’s raw and untouched nature to be relished here as you trek the dense deodar forest uphill. The trail will be worth every sweat. Post walking through a ridge, as you reach the Nag Tibba Summit, you’ll be taken aback by the enthralling sight of the Lower Himalayan ranges, and the Bandarpoonch, Gangotri, Swargrohini, Kala Naga ranges on one side of the ridge. Reward yourself with rest for making it to the top. Capture memories and the happiness in your heart and soul!
