About Activity

Nag Tibba lies on the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas, North-East of Mussoorie. The peak is at an altitude of 3100 m. It offers spectacular views of Mussoorie, Vikashnagar, the Bandar Poonch range and spurs created by the Yamuna river valley.

There is a temple dedicated to Nag Devta, and the range owes its name to this temple. Snakes have always held an important status in the Hindu religion. According to Hindu mythology, snakes are considered as the representation of rebirth, death and mortality, due to its casting of the skin and being symbolically "reborn". In some places, snake gods are associated with fertility.

For the villagers in this part of the mountains, he is the protector of their cattle and sheep. Domesticated animals are their biggest assets and Nag Devta, their protector.


Itinerary

Day 01: Dehradoon To Pantwari (95 km Drive) And 6 km Trek to Campsite

We begin the day early from Dehradoon. Mussoorie is 22 km from Dehradoon and Kamptee falls another 17 km further. The road continues downhill from here towards the Yamuna river bed and reaches the town of Nainbagh. One road continues towards Yamunotri, while we take the narrower road which climbs uphill towards Pantwari village. This takes us behind the Mussoorie ridge and into shepherd territory.

Gujjars with their domesticated sheep and goats are seen on hill tops. Terraced farms and hill slopes dotted with Bauhinia trees with their purple blossoms are a sight to photograph. After an hour, we reach Pantwari village and begin our ascent to our camping site. Women are seen working on the wheat and green pea fields. Men are mainly employed in government jobs in the plains or work as porters and guides.

Our trekking trail rises beyond the farms and enters wild territory. Flowers and birds are plenty here. We reach our camping ground by evening to enjoy the sunset over the hill spurs. The camping ground is flush with mint leaves which can be mixed to form a delightful brew of mint tea or the Kandali shrub can be washed and cooked to form a tasty saag.

Day 02: Trek from campsite to Nag Tibba top (6 km) and back to Pantwari (9 km). Drive back to Dehradoon

We start the second-day post breakfast and climb to the Nag Devta temple. It is an ill-maintained temple premise with no Pujari, but the locals come here frequently to pay their obeisance. There is a vast open space near the temple which is often used as a grazing ground for sheep and goats. The Nag Tibba ridge rises further up and is another 2 hour's hike ahead.

There is a distinct change in vegetation from here. The forest becomes dense and is dominated by oaks and rhododendrons. The forest floor is also damp indicating the lack of sunlight reaching it. This is an ideal habitat for a variety of orchids (locally called Kachanar) to grow. Several varieties of birds like the Niltava and Flameback Woodpecker are seen in the barks of oak trees.

We follow the trail back to our campsite and after lunch head down to Pantwari village. The trek down is easy and fast and can be covered in a couple of hours. We then proceed onwards to Dehradoon by our transport.
