Naag Tibba Trek

First slide

Nag tibba

Yearning for a weekend getaway? Looking to scale up, far away, and be one with nature for just a day or two? Boy! Do we have just the trek for you!

Nestled in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand, at a towering height of 9,500ft lies the Nag Tibba or Serpent’s Peak. Meaning “abode of the snake God”, it has a beautiful temple at the top and a little over, you can see the entire Bandarpoonch ranges of the Greater Himalayas towards the Yumnotri side. If you are a travel enthusiast, and looking for an easy weekend up in the north of India, there is no place better than to trek the Nag Tibba. 

This trek is apt for someone who likes to overload on adrenaline and yearns to get lost in the wild, green yonder of the Rhododendron forest. The peak provides a panoramic view of the Gangotri group peaks, Kedarnath peak in the North, Doon valley and the snow peaks of Chanabagh. Enjoy the magnificent views of Gujjar or shepherds dotting the environment from atop the Nag Tibba.

Traveling makes one modest and opens his mind for new ventures that he had never thought of before. If you are into wanderlust and have only a short of time, this place is perfect for you. The Nag Tibba Trek is for people of all the age groups having, reasonable fitness, who seek adventure.

It is preferable to take a four-wheel drive to reach the base of the trek. This is one of the most convenient ways.

DAY 1: Reaching Panthwari and trekking to the base campsite.

Estimated Time of Completion:  5-6.5 Hrs.

Estimated distance of drive: 90 km

Tip: get ready to make memories

The first step would be to reach Pantwari (4,500ft). It is a small and beautiful place in the Nag Tibba valley and takes about 5-6 hours of drive from Dehradun. After reaching Pantwari, we walk towards the campsite.

The path has different things to look out for including the Nag Devta Temple, shepherds’ huts and the goat hamlet which is quite famous locally for the varieties of goats and sheeps which are nourished by the villagers.

We ascend on the manmade trail while guided by the goat boards with arrows on them to help us navigate. After an hour of steep zig-zag climbing, we will gain enough altitude to have a clear view of the Panthwari village.

Walking a few minutes further, we reach a resting point marked by a single tree.

We halt here for a while to get some rest. Passing on the flattened trail for less than a half km, we will find a man-made water source where we fill up your bottles adequately.

Also, note that from the water source point begins the meadows with the rhododendrons. From here, you can locate the campsite further up towards your right to conclude for the day.

DAY 2- Nag Tibba core campsite to Nag Tibba summit (9500ft) and back to Panthwari and a short drive to Dehradun.

Estimated time of completion:  3 Hrs.

Estimated distance of trek: 4 km to reach summit and 8 km from Core campsite 1 to Pantwari.

Tip: No water source, carry at least 2 liters of water from the campsite.

We begin our hike early from the campsites we have a long journey ahead of us. The plan is to trek up to the peak from the Nag Tibba core base campsite and after experiencing the magnificent summit, we will again choose the same route to return to the core campsite and back to Panthwari.

We start from the rhododendron packed meadows towards the peak which can take anywhere between 40 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the snowfall and time of the year.

The Nag Tibba Summit is a godsend for people who have been looking for a weekend adventure. We enjoy the view of the peak and then trek back to the village from where we would be driving to Dehradun.
