For an alluring trekking destination for the weekends, Nag Tibba in the hinterlands of Garhwal is a ten on ten. With 9,915 ft maximum altitude, it is perfectly suitable for beginners and children, poses no threat of altitude sickness, offering a thoroughly enlivening trek instead. Anyone staying in and around Delhi can plan Nag Tibba- the highest peak of the Nag Tibba range in the Lesser Himalayas, for a rejuvenating weekend in the calm depths of forested mountains. With a couple of days added to the trek, “the queen of the hills” Mussoorie can be covered too.

Starting from Pantwari, a quiet hamlet in the vicinity of Dehradun-Mussoorie, the trek begins up a rocky ascent and after a couple of hours on the trail, enters the grove of oaks and rhododendrons. In warmer times on this path, you will be greeted with summer blossoms and greenery while winter comes with abundance of snow. The camping for the night is in a clearing at the edge of the forest, overlooking the undulations of the Lesser Himalayan green slopes expanding far and beyond. The trek goes on up to Nag Tibba base, marked by a temple dedicated to the serpent god, and from there to Nag Tibba top. The climax of the hike comes with the unveiling of a vision of the Gangotri group of peaks. From the high point of Nag Tibba, you can mark out Bandarpoonch, Kedarnath and Chanabang—all absolutely mesmerizing snow peaks of the Garhwal Himalayas!

  • Detailed Itinerary


    Day 1 :- Dehradun to Pantwari village and trek to Camp 1

    We will pick you up from Dehradun railway station around 7 in the morning, starting on a 4 hour uphill drive to village Panthwari at 4,640 ft. The road passes through a Mussoorie-the queen of hills, to Kempty Falls, and with the Yumuna river trailing our side on to Nainbagh from where we turn on the Nag TIbba road, reaching Panthwari at around 12 pm. We will be stopping for a light breakfast on the way. Also, Mussoorie is the last stop where an ATM is available.

    At Panthwari, we will have a filling lunch and after some rest, head off for the trek. The hike begins at the end of a motorable road till which we will be reached by car. Beginning on a well defined cemented path, we will find our way to a rocky trail. You will find 2-3 water points on this way, the first of which comes after 15 minutes in the trek- a reservoir of stream water. Fill your bottles from here and move ahead.

    30 minutes into the trek, you will come across a cluster of thatched roofed huts- a small village on cliffs, lined with terrace farmlands. During the harvest seasons, you will find these stretches in a wave of different shades in green and yellow. The locality of Panthwari can be seen lying down far below. Before reaching the ridge connecting the Panthwari side of the hills with Nag Tibba, you will come across ‘Goat Village’—an interesting eco-tourism resort.

    After a while, the rocky mountain trail enters a thicket of oak and rhododendron and the ascent curve almost levels out. The next landmark on the trek is an isolated hut by a stretch of farmland, from where our campsite will be another 5 minutes walk. The campsite is a small clearing with the forests for a background and the rolling abyss out front. To find clouds like smoke rising from beneath in the gulf just in front of the campsite ledge is a mesmeric experience.


    Day 2 :- Camp 1 to Nag Tibba top and return to Pantwari Village and drive to Dehradun

    Day 2 needs to start very early as it’s a long day ahead. After catching a quick breakfast, finishing by 5:00 am, we start on the hike to the top. A trail on the right of the campsite continues through a thick forest cover. With snow enveloping the path in the winters, it becomes a little challenging to locate the trail which is otherwise well defined. Within 20-30 minutes from the camp on the forest trail, you will reach two open patches of land, clearings by the forest fringes. From this point on, the trek is almost a level walk on very gentle undulations.

    The Nag Tibba temple marking the base of the Nag Tibba hill is situated on the third clearing that we find on this trail. From here, on a clear sky day, the Garhwal Himalaya peaks meet the eye.

    The trek continues from here into the forest on a steep incline, likely to be submerged in snow in the winter. This part of the trek really raises the bar for challenge and makes for a swashbuckling summit experience. Close to the top, the trail will turn through a ridge and finally take you to the flag marking Nag Tabbi jhandi, or summit. One possible route of descending from here is a trail passing through Devalsari village, visible on the reverse side of the mountain.

    The view from the summit brings us face to face with the Garhwal Himalaya’s most amazing. The canvas of the sky lights up with ice capped ranges of Bandarpoonch, Gangotri, Kedarnath, Kala Nag, and more.

    If the trek runs according to schedule, you can spend some time on the top, then make the way down by the same trail. Lunch will be at the camp. Panthwari will be reached by sundown and a 4-5 hour drive from there will take you Dehradun from where you can arrange an overnight journey.

    Risk & Respond

    High Altitude Treks: Risk and Response A high altitude trek calls for an adventurous attitude, but embarking on an adventurous trip without calculating the risks is utter stupidity. That’s why we have listed a few risks and the response planned by TTH to minimise or address the risks in the best possible way.


    Risk: Altitude Before you start the trek, it is important to understand the implications of high altitude on your body. Be aware of symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mild headache, nausea and general discomfort.

    Response: If you feel any of these symptoms, inform the trek leader on priority and follow his instructions. Every campsite has as stretcher, fully equipped first aid kit, oxygen cylinders to address the situation.


    Risk: Weather Weather is unpredictable in the Himalayas. Though we are always observant about the changing weather, no one can guarantee a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do understand that your security is of utmost importance to us and we will not proceed any further from the campsite if the weather is not favourable.

    Response: The decision of the Trek Leaders and Guides to proceed or wait for the weather to get better will be final.


    Risk: Injuries Often, while trekking over difficult terrains, you might have minor injuries like leg sprain, bruises etc. Serious injuries like fractures or major cuts are very rare.

    Response: All our Trek Leaders are Certified Wilderness First Aid responders. They are trained to handle emergencies and can tackle minor injuries with a well-equipped first aid kit. In case of serious injuries, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the nearest road-head and is led to nearest medical centre.


    Risk: Lack of communication devices In the remote areas of the Himalayas, mobile networks do not reach. On a trek, one is cut off from the world of calls, SMSs or watsapps.

    Response: We rely on walkie-talkies and runners to communicate between the campsites and the base camps.

    How Trek the Himalayas Reclaimed the Mountains with Green Trails Cleaning This June

    Goechala-trek.jpg

    We step into Himalayan kingdom wonderstruck every time how boundlessly nature has gifted these terrains with beauty and resources. Mile after mile of never ending virgin greens, clean air full of oxygen, mineral-rich waters of mountain streams, wildflower carpet and strawberry shrubs—suddenly it is inexhaustible life all around! Then at a closer look, the junk-ridden underbelly of paradise reveals itself—plastic bags, throwaway water bottles, medical waste, sanitary napkins, layer of oil—floating on the water, stuck in the earth, or glistening among leaves on the forest floor.
