The Nag Tibba trek is a must for all trek-lovers, especially those planning a visit to Dehradun and Mussoorie. At 9,910 ft, the Serpent Peak is the highest peak in the Nag Tibba range of the Garhwal Himalayas and has a lot of things to offer to its visitors. It is one of the most exciting places near Mussoorie, only a 3-hour drive away! The Nag Tibba Trek is considered to be one of the best treks in Uttarakhand, especially for beginners! The famous Mussoorie weather is replicated in Nag Tibba as well, and can be found to be agreeable throughout the year! 

The high altitude of the trek ensures that the weather remains pleasant throughout the year. The temperature varies from 6 degrees during the nights in December, to 25 degrees, during the days in the summers. If you decide to undertake the Nag Tibba Trek during peak winters, you will start coming across patches of snow just ahead of the base camp. However, you will hit the real deal on the second day, as you get nearer to the Tibba Top. Make sure to make full use of your trekking poles and snow gaiters on this day! The Nag Tibba trek challenges the myth that the harder and longer the trek, the better the view and the more memorable the experience. The view of Spiti on one side and the Bandarpoonch on the other are enough to make you believe that heaven really does exist!

There are two possible routes which can be taken to trek to Nag Tibba. One is via Auntar village, and the other via Patwari Village. Both the routes meet at Nag Mandir and converge along the way. This trekking experience takes you along the Patwari village. This path starts with a gentle incline, getting steeper in parts and takes you to the quaint little Goat Village. This charming hamlet makes for an ideal pit stop, and you can fill your water bottles here, before continuing on your ascent. The ancient temple presents breathtaking vistas of green meadows and deep valleys. 

Along with the stunning vistas of the Garhwal, there is also a wide range of flora found in the region. Amongst the mighty Deodars, there are the beautiful wildflowers which add colour to the scene. The total distance covered during the adventure trek is 25 km, which is reasonable for a first-time trekker and since it is a short trek, that makes it ideal for beginners. However, the altitude covered during the second day of this guided trek is relatively higher and can get steep in parts. Therefore, the Kareri Lake trek is an easy trek to undertake, with the trek gradient reaching a moderate level of difficulty in certain parts. To make the most of this trekking experience, the route taken to hike up to Nag Tibba top from the base camp is different from the path taken to descend. Thus, you will have the opportunity of taking in new vistas while covering the same distance! In your upcoming holidays, make sure to undertake the Nag Tibba Trek - one of the best experiences of trekking in India.
