A mesmerising experience : Nag Tibba


Nag Tibba appears to be an enticing and most suited weekend trekking spot in order to obtain such tranquillity. This journey is known by two names: “Nagg,” which means “snake,” and “Tibba,” which means “hill or peak” in local Garhwali dialect.

Nag Tibba, also known as  the Serpent’s Mountain, at 3,022 metres (9,915 feet), is the highest peak in Uttarakhand’s (Garhwal Division) lower Himalayan area and a Bugyals (High Altitude Meadows) region. It is named after the ‘Nag Tibba Range,’ which is the Himalaya’s next-northernmost of the five folds. It is 16 kilometres (9.9 miles) from Landour cantonment and 57 kilometres from Mussoorie in Uttarakhand’s Tehri Garhwal area.

This journey is also known as Serpent’s Trek, and it’s unique in that it can be done in the winter, when most other treks are closed owing to severe snowfall.
