Before i begin the nag tibba story, here is a little guide to nag tibba how you can reach there from delhi.
1- take a bus from ISBT kashmere gate Delhi to mussorie- 360 rs approx per person
2- then from mussorie to nainbagh by bus again- 90 rs per person
3-Nainbagh to pantwari by car- 50 rs perperson
4- pantwari is where the trek starts.
and thats it.
I have heard of this place called Nag tibba and wanted to go there for a very long time. So after doing enough research about it, I asked a good friend of mine who was also my college mate if he was interested for the nag tibba trek, as he agreed to go along, after 2 days we packed our bags and left delhi for the trek. I heard that nag tibba is only an 8 kms trek so maybe I thought it would be easy, as I have already done longer treks than that. So on 4th of February we started our journey from delhi to mussorie by bus at 9.30 pm and reach mussorie at 9.30am in the morning. From there we took another bus to Nainbagh and then from nainbagh we reached pantwari village where the trek to nag tibba starts.
We started our trek around 2pm rented a tent and then we started moving without a guide. People at pantwari village warned us about not taking a guide, but we didn’t listen to them. The first 4 kilometers went smooth and well, but I must say it was really tiresome even though it was only 4 kilometers as the trail only leads you upwards as there are no straight trails. After finishing our first 4 kilometers we crossed the goat village and we lost the way, by that time it was already 4.30pm as it was getting darker, we still haven’t made it to the base camp yet. Both of us being so confused it was becoming a challenge of surviving in the jungle all alone. We screamed loud (koi haiiiiiii), but no one could hear us. Lastly a group of guys came from nowhere we know of, and they told us the way to the base camp was not very far and to keep moving straight. We went up there, again lost the way all we saw was jungle and there was no way to be found. So we came back down in a plain area and camped for a night.
