Nag Tibba (Serpent’s Peak) 9,914 ft, is the highest peak in the lesser Himalayan region of Garhwal Division, Uttarakhand. It gives a name to the Nag Tibba Range, which is one of the three ranges of Lesser Himalayas, the other ranges are Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal.
Nag Tibba offers the majestic scenic beauty and a good trek for adventure lovers.
From Nag Tibba one can see the clear view of stunning Bandarpoonch peak, the Gangotri group of peaks, Kedarnath peak in the north, Doon valley and the snow peaks of Changbang.
Nag Tibba Trek is located at a distance of 85 km from Dehradun and has a distance of approx 16 km in total. Trek gradient is moderate and can be easily covered by anyone in two days. It is the best weekend gateway destination for the people living in and around Delhi. In winters it is packed in the snow, which gives you a picturesque view of the place.
The journey will start on day 0 at 11 pm. We will pick you up from Akshardham metro station and drive towards Dehradun. We will reach Dehradun by 5-6 am.
From Dehradun, we will continue our journey towards Pantwari village. The road from Dehradun passes through Mussoorie-the queen of hills, Kempty Falls, where we will have a 1 hr halt. After the break we will continue towards Pantwari Village with the Yamuna river trailing on our side, reaching Pantwari at around 10 am.
At Pantwari, after the briefing by our trek leader and a short break, the trek will start. It will be a 3-4 hours trek before reaching the campsite. On reaching campsite you will be served a hot lunch.
Post the lunch there will be an outdoor learning session which includes – Tent pitching, how to use a sleeping bag, backpack, trekking shoes etc.
After this session, evening snacks will be served. As the sunsets bonfire will be lit. Then at 8 pm, you will be served delicious dinner.
Day 2 needs to start early as it’s a long day ahead. After breakfast, at 5:00 am, we start on the hike to the top. After 2 hrs trek, we will reach Nag Tibba Base, which is a large clearing with a temple dedicated to the Serpent God.
The trek continues from here into the forest on a steep incline, likely to be submerged in the snow in the winter. Close to the top, the trail will turn through a ridge and finally take you to the flag marking Nag Tibba Jhandi, or summit.
The View from the summit brings us face to face with the mighty Garhwal Himalaya’s. The canvas of the sky in front lights up with ice-capped ranges of Bandarpoonch, Gangotri, Kedarnath, Kala Nag, and more.
After spending some time on the top, we will descend on the same trail to return to camp. Post lunch we will again descend to Pantwari and will reach there by sundown. Then a 4-5 hour drive from Pantwari, will take you to Dehradun. From here you will continue your journey towards Delhi. You will be reaching Delhi by midnight.
