Nag Tibba Trek

If you think Nandadevi is too far away to be seen from the top of Nag Tibba, check out the blog and see the mighty peak standing tall. Nag Tibba Trek is a very popular weekend hike in the Garhwal hills near Mussoorie. The proximity to Delhi and easy connectivity makes this a steep hike to the highest point of lower Himalayan Garhwal region a clear winner over other weekend hikes. The views from the top extends from Nandadevi in the South East to the Kinnaur Ranges of Himachal. The most promising view is that of Bandarpoonch from the top.

Contact: Suresh (+91-7579007421) at Pantwari village and he is a guide and will do all necessary arrangements.
