Nag Tibba

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 πŸ™‚

Gurgaon to Dehradun

Goat Village

Just after crossing Goat village, it started raining heavily! We all forgot to carry ponchos but we had extra clothes πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ We got drenched in rain and lost in the jungle. Luckily some villagers crossed our path and offered help.

Flowers flowers everywhere
He showed us the right path

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.

Villager’s farmhouse – We stayed at this place for a few hours.

After enjoying the views for a few hours, we started walking downhill. We packed our bags and left for Mussoorie πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚
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.

Stay options

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.

Friends and Friends of friends

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚
