The Nag Tibba trek offers you a 100-degree view of the snow-capped Himalayan Mountains which certainly is a sight to behold! Nag Tibba aka Serpent’s Peak is a part of one of the 3 ranges of the lower Himalayas. Located near Mussoorie, this place is perfect for a 2-day trek to refresh your mind and also fuel the wanderer in you.
The trail guides us through villages, dense forests, and meadows. Due to the easy access, this trek can be done by people who are absolutely new to trekking as well! The sunset after reaching the top is magical and is one of the best places to camp for the night. Nag Tibba is an all-season trek. The springs and summers are perfect to camp and also suitable in winter when you get to experience snowfall.

Once you are done marveling at the scenic mountains ahead of you, we will gather together for dinner and a bonfire over which we share and hear stories of our fellow travelers. We then retire for the day in our respective tents.
Wake up before sunrise and watch the sky change colors as the day-light starts to fill the sky. We will start our journey to the Nag Tibba Summit resting at 9,915ft which is a steep climb of 3 km from the Nag Mandir. After 2-3 hours of trekking, you will be able to enjoy the view of certain Himalayan Peaks like the Trishul, Nanda Devi, Srikanth, Swaragarohini, Black peak, and a few more!
We will head back down to the Nag Mandir Campsite for lunch and then descend back to Pantwari Village! The downhill trek takes about 3 hours.
As we climb back down and reach Pantwari we would also almost come to the end of our journey. With new friends made, new memories created, fresh breath in our lungs we shall board the bus around 7 PM which will get us to Delhi by 6 AM.
Join us on the trek with PlanTheUnplanned to experience the magic of strangers becoming friends and create unforgettable memories.
How is the Trip /Trek Organised?
For the proper organization of Backpacking Trips and Himalayan treks, Plan the Unplanned team is associated with a local experienced team that’s registered with ATOAI (Adventure Tour Operators Association of India)
Moreover, we have been working with them for 10 years. Their highly skilled staff with 20+ years of experience, professional local guides and BMC certified trek leaders are the reasons for our continuing partnership with them. The team shall manage all operations, medical and mechanical backup starting from the base location.
Only when we have over 8 bookings from Bangalore, do we send our leaders from Bangalore.
Note: To properly utilize resources, a batch from PTU is clubbed with trekkers who originally book with the local team. This is how all trekking organizations manage their treks. An exclusive PTU batch is only formed when we have a majority of bookings ( over 8 and above ) from PTU
