Make the most of your holidays in India by undertaking a Nag Tibba trek through the mountains in Uttarakhand. The end of monsoon translates into a cool weather, and the snow in the height of the season is all you need to enjoy the time. Nag Tibba is roughly a 10000-feet high mountain peak in the Garhwal region of the state of Uttarakhand. Locals believe that the Serpent God or Nag Devta resides here; hence the peak has been named as such. It is a revered site, and devotees offer prayers to the deity here. Adventure lovers and mountaineers are drawn to it as its summit offers panoramic views of snow-clad peaks of the Central Himalayas in the distance.
Nag Tibba trek Uttarakhand begins from the small village of Pantwari, which is reached after a 6-hour drive from Dehradun – the state capital. Your first stop is the temple of this deity that is one of his many shrines in the region. You will stay in a camp in the region, and will also enjoy a nice bonfire. The next day you start the most significant section of Nag Tibba trekking as it will take you through forests and brooks right up to the summit. Here you get to meander through pine and deodar forests, and be close to untouched nature. Along the way, you will see terraced farms and small villages, which will make you realise that there exists human life in the wilderness as well.
