Nag Tibba ('Serpent's Peak'), 3,022 metres (9,915 ft) is an ideal weekend trek suited for most people looking for a refresher from the boring routine. This trek can be done throughout the winter season when most of the treks in higher Himalayan ranges are closed. The trek can be done in 3 days from Delhi which makes it an ideal trek for weekends. Given its moderate level of challenge, anyone with a normal fitness can do this trek. The trek offers some of the best camping locations. The route goes through thick deodar forest. With only a day into the trek one reaches to very remote region with almost no habitation. A great refresher and trailer for new trekkers who are yet to see the full movie of a long trek.


Short Itinerary:

Day 01 : Dehradoon to Pantwari drive and trek to Campsite

Day 02 : trek from Campsite to Nagtibba top and back to Pantwari. Drive back to Dehradoon.


Minimum 4 Person required for this Trek

Day 01 : DEHRADOON TO PANTWARI (95kms DRIVE) AND 6kms TREK TO CAMPSITE

We begin the day early from Dehradoon. This way we can avoid the traffic towards Mussoorie and Kamptee falls. Mussoorie is 22kms from Dehradoon and Kamptee falls another 17kms further. The road continues downhill from here towards the Yamuna river bed and reaches the town of Nainbagh. One road continues towards yamunotri while we take the narrower road which climbs uphill towards Pantwari village. This takes us behind the Mussoorie ridge and into shepherd territory. Gujjars with their domesticated sheep and goats are seen on hill tops. Terraced farms and hill slopes dotted with Bauhinia trees with their purple blossoms are a sight to photograph. These flowering trees are easily identified by their leaves which are in the shape of a camels' foot. After an hour later we reach Pantwari village and begin our ascent to our camping site. With mules carrying the luggage one can enjoy the village setting and life. Women are seen working on the wheat and green pea fields. Men are mainly employed in government jobs in the plains or work as porters and guides. Our trekking trail rises beyond the farms and enters wild territory. Flowers and birds are plenty here. Most prominent flowers are white anemones (a flowering shrub) while among birds the jungle babbler, red vented bulbul, blue cheeked bulbul, hill myna, warblers and tits are common. We reach our camping ground by evening to enjoy the sunset over the hill spurs. The camping ground is flush with mint leaves which can be mixed to form a delightful brew of mint tea or the kandali shrub can be washed and cooked to form a tasty saag.

Accommodation: Tent

Meals: Lunch, Dinner


Day 02 : TREK FROM CAMPSITE TO NAGTIBBA TOP 6Kms AND BACK TO PANTWARI 9Kms. Drive back to Dehradoon.

We start the second day post breakfast and climb to the Nag Devta temple. It is an ill maintained temple premise with no pujari but the locals come here frequently to pay their obeisance. There is a vast open space near the temple which is often used as a grazing ground for sheep and goats. The Nag Tibba ridge rises further up and is another 2 hours hike ahead. There is a distinct change in vegetation from here. The forest become dense and is dominated by oaks and rhododendrons. The forest floor is also damp indicating the lack of sunlight reaching it. This is an ideal habitat for a variety for orchids (locally called kachanar) to grow. However with the pressure of grazing, lopping of oaks and trekking; this region is under anthropogenic pressure. A variety of birds like the niltava and flameback woodpecker are seen in the barks of oak trees. We follow the trail back to our campsite and after lunch head down to Pantwari village. The trek down is easy and fast and can be covered in a couple of hours. We then proceed onwards to Dehradoon by our transport.
