Nag Tibba, 3,022 metres, is the highest peak in the lesser Himalayan region of Uttarakhand state, and lends its name to the ‘Nag Tibba Range’, itself the next-northerly of the five folds of the Himalaya. The panorama of the Himalayan snow peaks of Garhwal and Himachal offers views of some of the famous peaks from here including the Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Srikanth and Black peak. Enjoy the magnificent views of Gujjar or shepherds dotting the environs from the Nag Tibba Top.
Nag Tibba trek route is a circular trek where the finish point is different from the start point and at no time there is an overlap of trail. On your way down you will go through a completely contrasting landscape having a dense mixed forest of Oak, Rhododendron, Cider and Alpine. Adding to the beauty of the trek is the opportunity to visit a couple of quaint villages which are extremely scenically situated amidst thick Deodar forests. Icing on the top would surely be the opportunity to dunk one’s feet into a cold and inviting stream at the end of the trek.
Another great attraction of this trip is the camping experience. There are beautiful meadows and thick jungles along the trail offering numerous scenic camping locations. Nag Tibba trekking is suitable for people of all age groups having reasonable fitness levels who seek adventure.
