Deo Tibba is a beautiful trek that would take you to the grazing pastures of the Gaddi shepherds, and offers magnificent views of the Deo Tibba peak (6,001 m) and its huge hanging glaciers. As you traverse across mountain streams, meadows and log bridges, the panorama of the mighty Himalayas keeps changing to give you an authentic feeling of the Greater Himalayan range, which in turn makes this a trek worth experiencing. It is an absolute delight for nature lovers and photography enthusiasts too. This trek is suitable for all age groups with a difficulty level of easy to moderate.
