Hello friends ... welcome you to my one more travelogue. 2019 was not good for me health wise. In April, I had a problem in my knee and back and it took about 6 months to recover. Now that I was well, so i thought why not do a short trek.

It was also my birthday in December, So I thought why not do a trek on my birthday. I shared this idea with my brother and he too agreed with my idea . He suggested me that Nag Tibba trek will be good for checking my knee strength.

After packing the essentials of tracking, both of us set out for Nag Tibba on the night of 29th November.

Day 1

After driving all night, this beautiful place in Uttarakhand forced us to stop. We took the first break of the trip here and after about 30 minutes we set out for further.

If you are coming to Pantwari from Dehradun, then you can bring a shared taxi from Dehradun. And if you are coming from your vehicle, then you can reach Pantwari via Vikasnagar or you can reach Pantwari via Dehradun and Mussoorie.

At 10:30 in the morning we reached Pantwari Village through the winding paths of the mountains. Pantwari is very small but beautiful village. People are very friendly and helpful.

Before going on the trek we had breakfast here and we also packed some food for the night. We were both doing this trek ourselves, so we had to make arrangements for our own food.

By the way, the trek starts with the Pantwari village, but the people there told that we can take our car even further. We also considered it appropriate and took our car and walked towards that place.

Nag Tibba lies in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas, which are found to the north-east of Mussoorie. The peak is at an altitude of 3048 metres. It has been long believed to be the abode of the Snake God or 'Nag Devta'. Local villagers regularly make the trek to the peak to offer their prayers to the Snake God to protect their cattle from snake bites.

The Nag Tibba trek starts at the village of Pantwari via the hill station of Mussoorie. There are many charming little villages that surround Pantwari, such as Bandsari village, Kori village, etc.

You will get water about 200 meters ahead of Goat village. From here onwards, you will not get water for drinking, so it would be better to fill your bottles.

Day 2

The cold at the base camp was too much, due to which we were not able to sleep well. At 4 in the morning we started climbing towards the summit. At about 6 o'clock we reached to the summit and it is very difficult to describe the view from the top.
