Overview

For those looking for a quick Himalayan escape, this itinerary on the Nagtibba route is a fantastic option. It takes you to the top of a ridge peak in the Nag Tibba range of the lower Himalayas, in just a day trek. You’ll pass charming villages, terraced fields, and flowering trees en route to your campsite. You’ll catch a beautiful sunset over the hills, and at night, you’ll camp in comfortable tents with the sounds of nature outside. Many people find this very interesting to refresh them from routine boring work life. Comparatively, it is a less explored trekking route near Mussoorie but with so much to witness and relish. Garhwal Himalayas are the pioneering protector of Nag Tibba and this is the highest peak in the range. The rich flora and fauna in the forests one will find before reaching the peak are the main attraction that keeps trekkers come back to attend its reverberating beauty. It is an amazing option to enjoy the views of Bandarpoonch Peak, the Gangotri Peaks, Kedarnath Peak, Changabang Peaks, and the Doon Valley.

Quick Look

  • Day 1 – Haridwar to Pantwari village and trek to Base Camp
  • Day 2 – Base Camp to Nag Tibba top and back
  • Day 3 – Base Camp to Pantwari (3hr Trek) – Haridwar 145 kms drive

Day 1

Haridwar to Pantwari village and trek to Base Camp

We will pick you up from Haridwar 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 Yamuna River trailing our side on to Nainbagh from where we turn on the Nag TIbba road, reaching Panthwari at around noon. We will be stopping for a light breakfast on the way. Also, Mussoorie is the last stop where an ATM is available. Beginning on a well defined cemented path, we will find our way to a rocky trail. 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. After a while, the rocky mountain trail enters a thicket of oak and rhododendron and the ascent curve almost levels out. 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

Base Camp to Nag Tibba top and back

No hurry for today as we have plenty of time to reach Nag Tibba top. After healthy breakfast, we’ll start the trek towards the Nag Tibba 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 trek continues from here into the forest on a steep incline, likely to be submerged in the snow in the winter. This part of the trek really raises the bar for a 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 summit. You can spend some time on the top and then make the way down by the same trail. Lunch will be at the camp. It’s a beautiful location to release the stress of the day and breathe in the pleasant air of the place. With the tents settled and dinner served it’s a wrap for the day.
