Nagtibba trek in Uttarakhand, India

About the Nagtibba

Situated in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas, in the northern state of Uttarakhand, Dehradun is a prime tourist hub as it is surrounded by opportunities for adventure. Nagtibba or Serpent’s Peak is barely a few hours away from Dehradun and Mussoorie.

About Nagtibba Trek

The Nagtibba trek is an easy one, starting at an elevation of 3500 feet and going up to the top of Nagtibba at 10,000 feet. It is perfect for newbies and participants with some experience looking for a short trek in the Himalayas. This Nagtibba trek gives you a pleasant mountain experience while it takes you through thick Himalayan forests and over streams, offering magnificent views of the Himalayas all the way. You'll get some beautiful views of the small mountain towns in the distance, nestling on the slopes of the lush hills.

The trek begins from Pantwari, 90 km from Dehradun. Along the way you will traverse dense and misty forests of oak with orchids and scarlet rhododendron at your feet. Hills lush with purple blossoms of the Bauhinia trees make for a pretty sight. White anemones are plentiful. Goats and woolly sheep dot the hillside. Look out for birds like Flameback woodpeckers, jungle warbler, red and blue bulbul, hill myna and warblers.

What you'll see on the Nagtibba trek

The Nagtibba trek will take you to the top of a ridge peak in the Nag Tibba range of the lower Himalayas. You'll trek through delightful paths, meeting friendly farmers and locals along the way. It's about 4-5 hours of trekking, with some steep patches. At the top, your campsite will be set up for a complete outdoors experience, with basic comforts like tents, sleeping bags, toilet tents, all led by a friendly team of guides and porters. The ground is covered with wild mint, which the cook will pluck to make you a deliciously refreshing cup of tea. The rest of the evening is free for you to explore the campsite, pluck some fresh mint, and admire the spectacular views of snowy peaks like Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Srikanth and Black Peak. You'll camp at two different campsites, walking through mountain pastures and oak forests by day, and sleeping under the stars by night.

In the morning, you'll wake to see gorgeous views of the peaks and of Mussoorie in the distance. On the way back you’ll visit the Nag Devta temple before beginning your descent. A few Nagtibba trek blogs reveal that even a quick weekend spent here is fulfilling and it will be hard to leave the tranquillity and simple mountain life behind.

Nagtibba weather

The Nagtibba trek can be done all year around. It is the perfect place for camping during summers, with bright and sunny days, temperature highs of 22 degrees C and lows of about 12 degrees C at night. During the winter, it is one of the best winter treks, as other trails become hard to navigate due to heavy snowfall. Nagtibba weather during winter varies between 0-8 degrees C. For those looking for a snow trek, Jan-Mar is the right time, depending on the snowfall that year.
