Brief Description

Grade:Easy
Location: Uttarakhand
Altitude:3004 m
Duration:3 Days

If you’re looking for a breather from your hectic work schedule and experience the peace and serenity of the mountains just over the weekend, Nag Tibba is the trek for you. It is a beginner level trek near the charming hill station of Mussoorie and is famous for its stunning sunsets from the campsite and terrific summit views. Resting at 3,022 m and spanning over 19 km, this trek is an absolute delight for all trekkers as it is open for the better part of the year and can be done by anyone with a basic level of fitness.

“Nag Tibba” means the serpent’s peak and is said to be the abode of the serpent God. This short trek is wholesome in its own way. It starts from the quaint village of Pantwari over a rocky uphill trudge and eventually envelopes into a local shepherd’s trail with gradual ascents and steep descents.

The trek runs through dense Rhododendron and Oak forests on snow clad terrain that is challenging to navigate in some sections. After trekking for about 5.5 km, the forest opens up to a small clearing with the Nag Mandir at the centre of it, offering mesmerizing views of the surrounding peaks. This is the campsite for the day.

Tip: The trek is more enjoyable when done over a span of three days instead of two. Find out why here.

Thanks to the open ground, the sunsets from this campsite are magical to behold only to have the magic surpassed by the starlit skies that follow.

Next day, the trek to the summit is steep and rugged but rewards you with glorious views of some prominent Himalayan Peaks like Swargrohini, Bandarpoonch, Black Peak &Gangotri amongst others.

And this is why the Nag Tibba trek is special. It treats you to an outstandingsummit view of an impressive range of snow-clad Garhwalian Peaks on the second day of the trek itself making it a must-do weekend winter trek in the Himalayas.

Although short in duration, the Nag Tibba trek does not fall short on the many attractions it holds. Read more about the Highlights of the Nag Tibba Trek.

The best months to do the Nag Tibba Trek for snow are December to March. The trails are completely snow-laden during these months and can be a challenge to navigate in some sections. We have discussed more about the skillset and gear one requires to complete the Nag Tibba Winter Trek here.

Brief Itinerary

Drive to Pantwari & trek to Nag Mandir campsite (2325 m)
Nag Mandir campsite (2325 m) to Nag Tibba Summit (3022 m) & back to campsite
Nag Mandir Campsite to Pantwari (1400 m) & drive back to Dehradun Bus Stand

Detailed Itinerary


Day 1

Drive to Pantwari & trek to Nag Mandir campsite (2325 m)

Distance: 90 kms + 5.5 kms

Duration: 4 hours drive + 4-5 hours trek

The journey begins at 7AM from the Dehradun bus stand. The drive to Pantwari (approximately 90kms) takes around 3-4 hours to cover, gaining an altitude of about 1400 m.

We will be driving through the Queen of hills – Mussoorie and passing by the lovely Kempty Falls along the way. Swift mountain streams run parallel to the roads in many sections. Although the journey is a charming one to behold, the roads can be rather coiled with sharp turns and steep climbs.

After crossing Mussoorie, the roads become emptier, the gorges on the sides seem bottomless and the mountains more rugged & lofty. We will be taking a quick halt on the way to freshen up and have breakfast.

Expect to be at Pantwari, the starting point, by 11 am. We will begin our trek to Nag Mandir as soon as we reach here. Packed lunches will be provided for this day.

The trail to the Nag Mandir campsite stretches over 5.5 kms and will take approximately 4-5 hours to cover. It begins with 2 kms of an uphill trudge on a cemented path that goes through the village market. Soon this path translates to a rocky uneven trail.

All along, one can enjoy the mesmerising views of the layered mountains, the small village of Pantwari lying down in the valley below & patches of farmlands on the way.

The next 1-1.5kms is a dry and narrow shepherd’s trail with gradual ascents and descents. After this the trail nosedives into a dense canopy of Oak and Rhododendron forests that allows only a little sunlight in. The red and pink flowers of the rhododendrons don’t bloom in the winters.

The path inside the forest can be snow-laden in some sections. After trekking for 1 km, the forest finally opens up to a small patch of land. A structure of a temple sits at the heart of this clearing. This is the famous Nag Mandir. We will be setting up camp here for the day.

The campsite offers panoramic views of a snow-covered Himalayan range at the horizon (on clear days).

Tip: The sunsets and starlit night skies are lovely at this campsite. The temperatures can dip down to -7 degrees in the winters. So please ensure you are layered well.

Note: In the winters, when the snow is heavy, we may set up camp at Khatian; a camping ground 2kms before Nag Mandir.

Day 2

Nag Mandir campsite (2325 m) to Nag Tibba Summit (3022 m) & back to campsite

Distance: 2 kms + 2 kms

Duration: 2-3 hours + 2-3 hours

The morning begins quite early. After having breakfast, we start the trek around 6AM and carry packed lunches along. The trekkers are also briefly trained for the ascent on the snow trail.

Beyond the Nag Mandir base, the trail climbs steeply uphill making the stretch a demanding one to navigate, especially with the snow. Since this stretch is thickly forested and barely gets any sunlight, the snow does not melt easily even during day time.

Usually, the snow is soft, granular in texture and ankle deep requiring the trekker to pull through at every step. During extremely cold days, the snow can even be knee deep.

Eventually, the trail turns through a ridge and the views finally start to open up towards the summit.

The Nag Tibba summit throws itself open to expansive views of some of the major Himalayan peaks like Swargarohini, Nanda Devi, Black Peak & Banderpoonch. Nag Tibba is one of those rare treks that allow a 180-270 degree summit view of the snow-clad Garhwal ranges on the second day itself.

We pause for a long break at the summit and have our lunch there as well. We then begin the descent towards the campsite by the same forest route we took to the summit.

Day 3

Nag Mandir Campsite to Pantwari (1400 m) & drive back to Dehradun Bus Stand

Distance: 5.5 kms + 90 kms

Duration: 3-4 hours trek + 4 hours drive

We start the day in the morning and prepare for a quick descent to Pantwari post breakfast. This would take around 3 hours to cover considering it is a downhill trek. We would arrive in Pantwari by 2PM and begin the drive to Dehradun at 3PM. It takes about 4 hours (7 PM) to reach the city. This would conclude our Nag Tibba winter trek.

Note: To be on the safer side though, arrange your return journey expecting to be at the Dehradun Bus Stand at around 9 PM. This could help account for any delays we may run into along the way.

For a detailed list, check the Packing List section on this page.

Dehradun has a sufficiently large market. However, do not leave anything for last minute buying as there will be no time for shopping because of immediate transportation to Pantwari. Pantwari is a very small village and it would be difficult to find anything major there. Minor toiletries are available.


Although not recommended, you can off load your bag at an additional cost. Add a request while making your booking for the trek and it can be arranged.

(Note: We don’t recommend offloading because the extra resources on a trail - ponies or porters depending on the trail - means extra load on the environment which can easily be avoided. It also goes against the spirit of trekking by eliminating a level of endurance and discomfort from the experience which are factors at the very heart of an outdoor adventure activity.)

You can leave the extra luggage at Bikat’s office in Dehradun. It can be collected on the way back.

On all trek days, we provide 3 full meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner) in addition to evening snacks and tea. The meals are vegetarian and the menu is pre-decided for all days of the trek. We do provide eggs as well on certain days. If you have any specific food-related allergies or restrictions, you can let our local staff (during the trek) know, and your requests will get accommodated. We try to provide a variety of food across meals so as to avoid repetition as well as cover all nutritional needs.

On campsites, our team will dig dry pits and assemble a toilet tent to provide for safe and secure quarters. A shovel will be provided within the toilet tent as well. Using water in the toilet tent is restricted; you will need to carry your own toilet paper. On the more difficult expeditions, toilet tents are not carried to the higher camps (above base camp) due to restriction of space (to pitch the tent).

In case you get your period on the trail and don’t have sanitary napkins, our trek leaders can provide them to you. If you need any other kind of assistance, you can let our trek leaders know. Irrespective of gender, our leaders are gender sensitised and equipped to assist you in any way you need them to.

Our team carries a first aid kit and all the basic medicines required during the trek. They are equipped to be the first responders in case of any injury or health-related issues. For higher expeditions, we also carry a HAPO Bag and oxygen cylinders to tend to any altitude-related health conditions.

No, we will be camping in the wilderness with no access to electricity.


A copy of your ID Proof and Medical Certificate are the mandatory documents required for this trek. (Soft copies for all of these are to be sent to us & originals should be on your person while on the trek.)

Yes, insurance for any high-altitude activity is highly recommended to cover for the cost of rescue, evacuation and any other emergency service required as well as to cover for medical cost in case of injury or illness during the trek. You can buy it on your own. Alternatively, if you want us to buy it on your behalf, you can speak to our post-booking team and they will arrange it for you. They will send you a payment link once the insurance has been purchased.

Yes, there are multiple permits required for this. We obtain the permits on every trekkers’ behalf. All the permit costs are included in your trek cost.


Yes, you will receive e-certificates (of completion) after the trek. It will bear your name, the trek, and the maximum altitude you achieved on the trek. In case you were unable to finish the trek, you will get a certificate of participation.

On completion of the trek, the certificate will show up on your dashboard on our website. You can download it directly from there.


Nag Tibba Trek is in India. If you are coming from outside, you will need a visa to enter the country. You should be able to find the rules for obtaining a Visa based on your home country on the internet. This information is easily available.

This does not apply to you if you are an Indian citizen. In case you don’t hold an Indian passport, you will need to check online for Visa application rules based on your home country.

If you are not an Indian citizen, you will need Travel Medical Insurance to travel to the country. Please make sure that your insurance policy is valid for the altitude you are going to and the activity you are undertaking, to cover risks during the trek. The insurance policy provided by Bikat Adventures does not cover foreign nationals. So, please do not purchase it while making the booking from our website.

Nag Tibba Trek is part of the Garhwal Himalayas. The Himalayas house the tallest mountains in the world and have long been a treasure trove for all adventure enthusiasts. The variety in terms of beauty, terrain, landscape, geography, culture and opportunity for adventure in the Himalayas, remains undisputedly unmatched.

You can make the booking any time depending on availability of slots in our fixed departure batches. You will get this information at the top of this page.


A Basic Mountaineering Course certification from one of the five recognized mountaineering institutes in India is a minimum requirement to join our team. Our field experts are also trained in basic medicine and first-aid response. We also conduct on-ground training for our staff once a year as a refresher for old skills and to learn some new ones. During this training that we call APW (Adventure Professional Workshop), our leaders learn close to 25 topics and techniques of rescue which are not covered in the BMC and AMC courses. For practical training, we simulate on-ground situations to prepare them for quick thinking and quick response during emergencies.

We follow a rigorous regime of hiring and training our experts on the field. Each trek leader is a certified mountaineer with years of experience in the field. The interview process to bring a trek leader on-board is close to 6 months long where we assess various skills as well as personality traits of an individual. They also go through an on-field assignment as part of the hiring process. Trek leaders also progress in time from leading easier treks before advancing to the more difficult ones where the stakes are higher. For detailed information on our selection process, please visit Forerunners - The Making Of A Trek Leader

It absolutely is. We recognize, value and embody the ideology that the world of outdoor adventure can benefit from diversity. We make it our mission to create outdoor spaces as equally accessible and safe for all genders as possible. We also encourage women leaders in the outdoors and all of our staff (irrespective of gender) is gender sensitised. As for accommodation, in case there are no other women on the trek, a solo female trekker is provided with a separate single-occupancy tent.

Our batch sizes for Nag Tibba Trek are capped at 15 with the trek leader to trekker ratio of 1:8.

In addition to their qualification, our trek leaders are trained to tackle any and all kinds of sudden conditions that may present themselves on ground. During our recce stage, we study the trail in great detail and map out rescue routes before opening it up for our trekkers. We also have local support staff stationed in each area to arrange for emergency services at the place of need as quickly as possible.

We mobilise road rescue efforts where our trek leaders bring the person to be rescued down to the trailhead of the trek from where a car can take them to the nearest healthcare facility. The cost of rescue is not covered in the trek fee that we charge. It must be borne by the participant. However, if you opt for the insurance, the cost of rescue operations can be claimed from the Insurance company on production of valid proof e.g. doctor’s prescription & hospital bills etc. Please note that Bikat Adventures is only a facilitator & not a party in the Insurance policy. You need to raise the claim request directly with the Insurance company. Bikat Adventures is not responsible for any rejection of claim. You can call the insurance provider directly for any clarifications related to the Insurance policy. Although not mandatory, we recommend buying the insurance. You don’t necessarily have to get the insurance we provide, you can pick an Insurance company of your choice and get a policy directly from them. If you need more information on the terms and conditions of the insurance policy, get in touch with our customer support team.

All the gear used on our treks and expeditions is tried and tested, maintained for good quality and is overall top notch in quality and condition. We are continually looking to obtain the best of everything there is in the market so as to ensure optimum safety.

That will depend on the nature of your medical condition. Do give us a call, and one of our people will help you understand what is best for you. If not this, we are sure there would be plenty of other options you can choose from our vast portfolio to pick as your next adventure.


We have rolling camps on all our trails. To know why we are strictly against the concept of Fixed Camping, read Reasons to Ban Fixed Camping in Himalayas

This is a complex question and has a compound answer. The simple response is that because it is bad for the environment which we dearly love but if you are interested in a more detailed response to this question, please read Reasons to Ban Fixed Camping in Himalayas

There are a number of measures that we take to prevent overcrowding on some of the most popular trails. Some of them are capping our group size at 15, capping the number of trekkers on a trail to 250 per season, constantly looking for newer trails and routes to spread the crowd around and providing incentives to our trekkers to try unexplored territories with us. We put in place the system of dynamic pricing, which is the first of its kind in the trekking industry, which incentivises trekkers to choose less crowded trails by offering higher discounts. We have noticed, since we started this system, that this has helped in a big way to spread out the crowds between trekking routes. We are also going international so as to relieve some of the stress on the Himalayan landscape as well as explore newer ranges and design newer experiences for our community. If you want a more detailed description of all our measures in this regard, please read Simple solutions to overcrowding on Himalayan Treks

Some basic things to remember are: do not use water, do not dispose of anything non-biodegradable inside the pits, carry your own roll of toilet paper and remember to cover up after yourself to leave a clean toilet for your fellow trekkers. Everything else is much the same like using an Indian style home toilet!

Most wet wipes are not biodegradable which means it could take 100 years or more for them to decompose – not the best thing if you are trying to ‘Leave No Trace’, right?

This is quite a tricky situation but not a hopeless one. Since most of our sanitary waste is not biodegradable, we recommend that you pack your pads/tampons neatly, store it in a zip-lock bag and bring it back down with you where there are better options to dispose of them. In case you do not have zip-lock bags, ask our trek leaders for them and they should be able to provide them to you.

Each trekker is responsible for the use and hygiene of their own eating utensils. And as a measure to maintain proper hygiene, we do not provide plates and spoons. Also, dipping your hands in cold water to wash your own utensils adds something to the overall joy of high-altitude living, wouldn’t you think?


On making the payment, you will receive a booking confirmation along with the packing list and a copy of the undertaking form via email. You will subsequently receive emails detailing documents required, how to prepare physically and mentally for the trek, information on pick-up location on the first day etc. Please add info@bikatadventures.com in your trusted emails list to make sure our emails don't go to your spam folder.

A Whatsapp group will be formed a few weeks before departure. Members from our team are on those groups as well. Feel free to seek any clarifications you require in regards to the trek, on the group itself. Updates related to transportation/pickup point/pickup timing, accommodation etc. will be shared on the Whatsapp group as well.

Yes, we create a Whatsapp group a few weeks before the departure date so that the flow of information remains smooth and transparent.

Yes, it is one of the mandatory documents you will need to submit before the trek starts. The soft copy is to be sent to us & the original should be on your person while on the trek.

Yes, we will provide you an undertaking form through email which will need to be filled up by you and submitted to us post booking.

Why Bikat?

Small Group Size


Our batch sizes are capped at 15 for smaller treks with the trek leader and trekker ratio of 1:8. This ratio, in our years of experience, has proven to deliver the best trekking experience for individuals as well as groups. Capping the size of the group ensures individual attention to each trekker so that no signs of distress or need during the trek go unnoticed. It also helps to form a more cohesive cohort with better group energy which helps define the rhythm and pace of days on the trek.

As you go higher up on the BRS scale, since the stakes are higher, expeditions have an even smaller group size with the ratio of expedition leader to climber set at 1:2.


Qualified Trek Leaders


We follow a rigorous regime of hiring and training our experts in the field. Each trek leader is a certified mountaineer with years of experience in the field. In addition to their qualification, they also go through practical and situational training to tackle any and all kinds of sudden conditions that may present themselves on the ground. Being unpredictable is the core nature of the mountains but being ready for any circumstance as best as possible is a controllable asset that we try to nurture.

Our field experts are also trained in basic medicine and first-aid response.

All the gear used on our treks and expeditions is tried and tested, maintained for good quality, and is overall top-notch in quality and condition. We are continually looking to obtain the best of everything there is in the market so as to ensure optimum safety.
