At an altitude of 3,022 metres, Nag Tibba, literally meaning the Serpent's Peak, is the highest peak in the lesser Himalayan region. For those who want to walk in the forests, climb up to 10,000 ft, see snow-clad mountains and camp under starry night skies, this trek is just what you were looking for. It offers stunning views of Bandarpoonch, the Gangotri group of peaks, Kedarnath in the north, Doon valley and the snow peaks of Chanabang. The trek takes you through dense forests rich in flora and fauna. A beautiful mix of Oak and Deodar forests bustling with birds and wildlife, and an opportunity to see the unique way of life of the people in a Garhwali village is, to say the least, inviting.

Nag Tibba Trekking Itinerary

Day 1: Dehradun – Pantwari

From Dehradun, we drive to Pantwari village. The four-hour long road journey takes us via Mussoorie, Kempty Falls, over the Yamuna Bridge and up to Nainbagh on the road to Purola. From the Nainbagh main market, we take a road going up on the right (also known as the Nag Tibba road). It’s a 12 km drive from here to reach Pantwari village – the starting point for the trek.

Day 2: Pantwari to Camp 1

A cemented trail goes up from the heart of the village market. As we go up, we’ll spot a “Nag Devta” temple on our left. From this point onward, the trail curves towards the left and the cemented surface is now replaced with a rocky shepherd trail. We cross a road along the way and continue on a trail going up the mountain just straight ahead of us. We traverse through fields with vast tracts of farmland and the Pantwari village below. When facing the Pantwari village, the connecting ridge to Nag Tibba will be right behind us. After a gradual walk of about 20 minutes, we climb up the hill from the left side. The trail from here is a gradual and pleasant walk till we reach a water source. Look for a cemented reservoir of drinking water. It is right below an isolated hut next to a small farm, making for a picturesque view. In front of us now lies a trail going up through the forest cover. Expect another 20 to 30 minutes of steep climb over a semi-defined trail which zigzags upwards. 15 minutes into the hike, look out for a small clearing. From here you can locate the campsite further towards the right. One can camp on a small clearing near a small stream. Backpackers normally tend to camp here instead of the Nag Tibba base, which is another 2 km further up the trail. A spectacular 180 degree view of the valley from here is breathtaking.

Day 3: Camp 1 to Nag Tibba Summit (9,915 ft) via Nag Tibba Base (8,530 ft)

After an early breakfast at Camp 1, we start our trek for the summit. We follow a pretty well-defined trail towards the right going straight into a thick forest area. However, during the month of January and February snow makes it difficult to identify the trail. The estimated time it takes to reach the Nag Tibba base is around 45 minutes to 1 hour. The route is mostly a gradual walk with a small section of steep ascent for 10 minutes in between. The Nag Tibba base is a large clearing with a temple dedicated to the Serpent God. You get a view of the Garhwal peaks through the forest. In winter, one will encounter a lot of snow here. The last 1 km is a very steep incline going into a forest with hardly any sunlight, which prevents the snow from melting. This is where our able guides who know the trail come in handy. The snow makes the climb even more challenging yet very rewarding. It can take anywhere between 1 to 1 hour 15 minutes to reach the summit. Towards the top, we will see the trail re-appear and curve towards a ridge on the left. Walk for a minute till you see an open patch of land sloping downwards on the other side of the mountain. There will be a flag on the highest point called Nag Tibba “Jhandi” or summit. Looking down towards the other side of the ridge, you will see the route from Deolsari or Devalsari village. On the left hand slope from the summit, one can get a terrific view of the mighty Himalayan ranges of Swargrohini, Bandarpoonch, Kala Nag, Srikanta and Gangotri. The whole section looks beautifully carpeted in snow, making it a true winter weekend trek. The rest of the 8 km trek is retracing the same route taken to reach the summit. Pace the trek so that you reach Pantwari before sunset. Return to Dehradun and our service ends here.
