Usually while going for any Himalayan Treks, traveling through the ghat sections is the most tiring part. Unlike in other treks, this trek, in particular, has the minimal travel distance from nearest major city hub. Nag Tibba peak is located in the Nag Tibba range of the Himalayas which is located at just 90 km from Dehradun.
The main attraction of this trek is camping experience on the beautiful snow covered meadows and summiting the top walking over the thick snow carpet.
Another plus point of this trek is moderate gradient with few steep sections what makes it a perfect choice for an enthusiastic and reasonably adventurous group of friends or even families. The top of Nag Tibba offers panoramic views of Himalayan range and one can spot few of the peaks like Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Srikanth and Black peak.
Along with the two campings in the snow under the starry sky, cherish the comfortable stay at Viraatkhai, a lodge constructed at a very scenic location.
