Mussoorie’s exciting weekend summit

We all know that climbing to the summit on a trek is highly rewarding. That’s why we have walkers on hikes such as Kedarkantha or Chandrashila Deoriatal. You will taste the thrill of a peak in just one weekend in a direction like Nag Tibba!

The highest peak in the Nag Tibba Games of Garhwal Himalayas is 9,915 ft. The summit of this trek. From the snow-covered areas in the Himalayas, such as Swargrohini, Bandarpoonch, Kala Nag, Srikantha, and Gangotri, you can see a 100-degree view. In the North, you can see the Kedarnath mountain, Doon valley, and the Changabang snow peaks. This weekend’s trek could be one of the best with views like this and a climb to make you deserve them.

You also see a range of landscapes when you walk up one side of the mountain and down from another. This tour brings you through thick woodland, clearings, and mountain ranges. In two days! All!

The view of the sunset from campsite

This relatively unknown trail in the vicinity of Mussoorie is a good choice for those who want a weekend’s adventure in Delhi and the National Capital Area. This fun trip for beginners is an introduction to the trekking world

This is one of the few treks that we have to see spectacular sunsets. This is due to the direction of the road. On an obvious day, you can see large snow-capped mountains such as Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Kalanag, Srikanth, and Gangotri lit up with fiery orange. Under you, you see a floating cloud bed. In order to see this sunset, you have not even got to ascend to a high point. From your campsite, you will see it right!

Somewhere I read “When you see Sunrise and Sunset every day it means you’re the luckiest person” and today I saw the exceptional view of Nag Tibba’s sunrise after a very long interval of time. I was tired and hungry, but for this lovely portrait of nature, it was a very small price. We laid on the grass, watched the clear blue sky, and enjoyed the quietness of the place.

But, how we get here?

When I learned this for the first time ever, I had the chance to take out the Nag Tiibba trek in my bucket. Would you like to join Nag Tibba Trek for one of my friends? I consider the suggestion without too much thought.

This trip was three of us who were excited. We met to prepare and we agreed on the date, time and fixed the whole schedule for the next weekend, following the lead of the moment. We completed our packaging the next few days and left for Uttarakhand on a Thursday night.

Our first stop is Dehradun to meet Nag Tibba. Dehradun is the starting point of the journey. Both modes of transport are well linked. From Delhi, you can also take the bus, rail, and flight.

road — It takes approximately 6 to 7 hours to reach Dehradun when you ride from bus or taxi.

Train — Rail services can also be run daily and alternately from Delhi to Dehradun. You can pick it for your comfort.

Air — If you want to experience air or time-saving, this is your best option. Jolly Grant Airport Dehradun takes between 45–60 minutes.

The sun did not yet appear in a beautiful morning, the brisk was streaming, opening our sleepy eyes and bringing freshness to this place. We left behind the Dehradun. The path here was smooth and the window shows the landscape changes colors. There are long pine trees on one side and yellow fields on the other. In seeing these magnificent views, we did not understand the speed of time and around 9 am we reached the spot where Nag Tibba begins the actual trek.

We moved to our base camp but because of all our camping stuff, our pace was pretty sluggish. It was pretty hard to do, but after 5 hours we were inspired and arrived at Nag Temple and decided to camp in the vicinity of Nag Temple. The temple of Nag is 1 km before Nag Devta’s height. Great trust in Nag Devta is kept in local villagers. At this summit, which is a testament to his saintliness, local people offered prayers (puja) to the Snake God (Nag Devta). In addition, there’s a source of water near the temple you can use when the water is gone. However, water is not very safe so make sure you boil it before consumption or use chlorine tablets.

How many days do we get to wake up to the birds and the Himalayas glowing? Perhaps very little. It was awesome for us that morning. We woke up at 4:45 pm to take a look at the stunning sunset view to the Nag Tibba Summit. We’re handing out the job. I helped my friend to pack tents and another friend to make tea for us. The whole thing took 15 minutes to pack. We didn’t have time for tea now. We pour our tea into a vacuum bottle and chose to enjoy it with a sunrise view at the summit.

The trek to the summit begins at 5:02. After each step, the trail went steeper and steeper. After the battle to get to the top. We saw some flags waving in the air, fortunately. We have seen each other with a devilish grin and ran first to hit the top without saying a single word. Yeah, it sounds stupid, but the laugh for us was unforgettable. We’ve been at the top 50 seconds later. Both of them were entirely breathless. It was a small step but believe me, any small step you have taken will be forgotten when you reach it.

Best time to Visit — Nag Tibba is a weekend destination, which can be reached all year round.

Summer (April to June)- Nag Tibba is a weekend destination, which can be reached all year round.

Monsoon (July, August, mid-September)- All is painted green in the season of Monsoon. You can see trees filled with flowers of red wine that make your walk more scenic. But you can stop during the walk by rain so don’t forget to bring waterproof raincoats and bags.

Winter Season (December to February)- In winters, you’ll find everything that is hidden by a white snow blanket that strengthens Nag Tibba’s beauty and attracts more visitors.

Uttarakhand has a large number of glacial-powered rivers and these rivers provide decent rafting stretches, with smooth and calm sailing for beginner paddlers and few stressful 4 and 5-grade speed patches for professionals. Uttarakhand has many places with Rishikesh where you can enjoy this exciting sport.

The trek Nag Tibba is about 8 and 9 km long and full of turns that pass through the densely landscaped forest. It’s very hard to find out and be on a right track especially in winter when the whole area is covered with snow. And your mistaken move takes you to a place where no one wants to trapped that’s full of wild beings.

But I just love untimely rain and tea, I don’t know about you. And we’re going towards the tea stable without wasting any time. Sipping a cup of tea with a tumult and chatting with friends with a lot of stupidity always gives me a great time. We were ready after taking light snacks and our next stop, Pantwari village, was stopped and, fortunately, the rain was stopped.
