Detailed Itinerary for the Beginners’ Nagtibba Trek

About Trek:

Nagtibba is one of the beginner’s trek. In case you are near Delhi, and looking for some camping experience and trekking for the first time, Nagtibba is for you. We #ghoomophirosisters were completely thrilled and mesmerized by the beauty and closeness to the nature of the place. The best part of this trek is, it can be covered over a weekend.

About Nag Tibba:

Nag Tibba, also called as “Serpent’s Peak”. It is the highest peak in the lower range of Himalayas. It is located in the Tehri district of Uttarakhand state. It is situated at an altitude of 3022 metres (9915 feet). From Nag Tibba Top you can see the magnificent view of Bandarpunch Peak, the Gangotri group of peaks, Kedarnath peak in the north, Doon valley and the peaks of China bang.

How to reach

There are mainly two routes to trek to Nag Tibba. One is Panthwari route and the other one is Devalsari route. Panthwari is the short one and Devalsari is the long one. But the route from Panthwari is more steep and difficult than the Devalsari route, and we chose Panthwari. Usually, it is your trek guide who will decide your route.

Trek Features:

Total Trek Distance: From Panthwari: 17 km (up to Nag Tibba Base and down) & 3 km further more (Nag Tibba Top).
From Devalsari: 28 km (up to Nag Tibba Base and down) & 3 km further more (Nag Tibba Top).
