One of the best winter treks to do in India, which is best suited for beginners, ends with a rewarding view of the peaks of the great Himalayas and is accessible throughout the year, is the Nag Tibba trek.
Situated at an altitude of more than 9000ft above sea level, this trek is perfect for a 3-day weekend trip to the Himalayas.
The place holds mythical significance as the word ‘Nag Tibba’ itself means Serpent’s Peak. This part of the Garhwal Himalayan region is influenced by the ‘Nag-Devta’ or Serpent god and is sacred to locals who worship the Serpent god. Especially at the time when they want their Cattle to flourish.
If you are staying in Delhi, then you can easily plan the Nag Tibba trek as a weekend getaway. The trail begins from the quaint village of Pantwari and although the terrain isn’t smooth at first, it gradually leads to lush green forests of oak trees relieving you from stress.
The trail provides a closer glimpse at the slow-paced life of the mountains where you get to see thatched huts and the quaint life that remains untouched by the hustle and bustle we see in the cities.
The best part is during spring, the meadows are covered in different colored blossoms while winters offer a thick carpet of snow for you to walk upon.
The great Himalayas in the backdrop beckons you to reach the summit so that you can take in the breathtaking view that comes with the conclusion of the trek. The view of the Gangotri massif, especially when they are covered in an ivory blanket of snow, is to die for.
To make sure that you get to make the most of this escapade to the mountains and make some great memories, we also provide group bonding activities so you can get comfortable with your fellow travelers so that when you think back to this trip, your face instantly lights up with a smile.
Although the trek to Nag Tibba is accessible throughout the year, the best time to do the Nag Tibba trek is from October to February especially if you are a snow lover.
