On a random Friday snack break, I asked my colleague – Let’s go trekking !!
She replied – Let’s go!
Being novice trekkers we both didn’t know where to go! So we went to one of the trekkers, Yogesh in our team to get some idea where we could go. He suggested trekking Nag Tibba !! Till evening 4 more friends and friends of friends joined the journey.
On Saturday early morning, I was all set for my second trek 🙂
Just after crossing Goat village, it started raining heavily! We all forgot to carry ponchos but we had extra clothes 🙂 🙂 We got drenched in rain and lost in the jungle. Luckily some villagers crossed our path and offered help.
They offered us shelter, and food, and his wife shared their story. Once the rain allowed us to trek, we started walking uphill sweating. After walking for an hour, we reached the temple, Nag Tibba.
After enjoying the views for a few hours, we started walking downhill. We packed our bags and left for Mussoorie 🙂
How to reach Nag Tibba
Dehradun is well connected via railways and airways from various cities. There are direct cabs and local buses which could be taken to reach the base village for Nag Tibba, Pantwari.
Delhi -> Dehradun -> Pantwari.
Due to the crunch of planning, rush, and time we had to follow the below route via random local buses 🙂
Gurugram-> Delhi-> Rishikesh->Dehradhun -> Pantwari
Best weather Nag Tibba
If you want to experience snow, trek in winters i.e December to March
October to November – For lush green views and flowers.
I went in the month of July just after 1st rain in Nag Tibba, avoiding trekking in the monsoon due to landslides.
There are no fancy hotels at Pantwari, we stayed at a villager’s home as we were not carrying our tents. It’s a small village with a few homestays.
