Experience


Nag Tibba is one of the most unique and historical treks. The base for this trek is a place called Panthwari which is a 70 km drive from Dehradun via Mussourie. You will go through dense deodar forests to reach the base of Nag Tibba at Nag taal where you camp for the night. In the morning you will go to the summit of Nag Tibba and return to the base same day and on the third day return from the other side of the ridge via Pantwari.

During the trek you will find yourself at almost 10,000 ft which is the highest point in the lower Himalayas. You will be enchanted by a panoramic view of the snow covered Himalayas, including the Bandarpunch and Swargarohini range and even the Nanda Devi in the distance. Overnight stay with camping gear is recommended for trekkers because there is no accommodation at the place. The nearest accommodation is Devalsari guest house. A day trek is the other option, but is very arduous. An important thing to note is that water is scarce along the route and is usually carried by the trekkers.

The trek through Nag Tibba Range, finds mention in the book Seven Years in Tibet, which chronicles the journey of mountaineers, Heinrich Harrer, Peter Aufschnaiter in May 1944, towards Tibet.

In total, the trek lasts 4 days from Dehradun to Dehradun or from Rishikesh to Rishikesh.

Itinerary

Day 1 / Arrive in Mussourie
Walk down the Mall Road. Visit Landour to have a glimpse of Ruskin Bond's house. Overnight stay in Mussourie.
Day 2 / Arrive in Pantwari (70 km, 2 hr drive from Mussourie). Trek to Nag Tibba Base (8 km, 3-4 hr. trek)
This is a fairly short drive that from Mussourie and Kempty falls where you can stop over for some time. We setup camp in Pantwari for the night. You also cross numerous quaint Himalayan towns. We spend our first night at the base of Nag Tibba top close to Nag Taal. Expect dense forest throughout the trek, but in particular at the Nagtaal where we camp for the night. The trek is not very long but is a little steep most of the way. The idea is to enjoy the scenery and what the Himalayas have to offer instead of just walking.
Day 3 / Trek to Nag Tibba top and return to the base (3 km, 2 hour trek going up, 2-3 hour trek coming down)
We trek to Nag Tibba top which is the highest point in the lower Himalayas at 10,000 ft. Expect views from the top of most of the prominent Himalayan Mountains from there. After some time there, we return to the base where we spend the night.
Day 4 / Trek back to Pantwari (8 km 2-3 hour trek). Drive to Dehradun for onward journey
For our onward journey we follow the other ridge of Nag Tibba for a 12 km downhill trek to Devalsari which houses an old beautiful forest guest house. From there we drive to Dehradun for an onward journey to your final destination.

Reviews

1. Aayushi Bhardwaj

(A) How would you rate the Nagtibba trek and the experience: Stars out of 5(5 being the highest, 0 being the lowest)
5 Stars

(B) Short write up about the experience:
1) Things you loved, liked and didn’t like about the trek

I am 13 years old and this was my second trek with My Himalayan Adventure. After much climbing, reaching a point even higher than Nagtibba was a great achievement. The view on top made this feat much more satisfying. The unanticipated storm and rains added to the non-eventful trek.

2) As a first timer how you felt about the trek?
It was a remarkable experience devoid of the comforts of home. Not having those comforts has its own charm and I absolutely loved it. It was different and something better to pride myself on.
3) Any recommendations for those planning to undertake this trek
Don’t think twice. Just take it.

(B) Short write up about the experience:

1) Things you loved, liked and didn’t like about the trek
I just loved everything about the trek right from the start. This is considered to be a relatively easy trek and can be taken by any first timer. The guidance and support provided by our experienced trek guide Satyajeet was a welcome relief. He was almost like a family member to us through the trek. The arrangements made at that height and natural conditions was commendable. At all points in time our comfort was of prime importance for the organizers and their team.

2) As a first timer how did you feel about the trek?

I am not just a first timer but also someone with a host of medical issues. Having completed this trek is nothing less than miracle for me. All the arrangements made by the organizers had taken into account our needs and requirements. My most memorable moment was of reaching the Nagtibba and looking down at the world with a sense of achievement. The journey however was more beautiful than the destination. It was truly memorable and even today when I close my eyes I can feel the rush. I am already looking forward to my next one.

3) Any recommendations for those planning to undertake this trek

Go with an open heart and eyes so as to not miss the innumerable magical sights and sounds you will encounter on the way. Be prepared for all the surprises that will sweep you off your feet. Be adjusting and step out of your comfort zones to be one with nature. You have to be like her to fully enjoy and absorb the trek experience.

All the best !!

1) Things you loved, liked and didn’t like about the trek

I am an avid trekker and take atleast one trek every year. For the last two years I have been taking with the same group. This trek was very good. Everything was very well planned and arrangements were good. Warm, freshly cooked food was simply great.

2) As a first timer here how did you feel about the trek?

Reaching heights much beyond what was planned was brilliant. The unexpected snow fall at point beyond Nagtibba was an added advantage.

3) Any recommendations for those planning to undertake this trek

Go for it. It’s not very difficult.
