What an experience it was. we came across a lot of greenery items in between that was looking cool but were poisonous. The trail was marked and guide was with us so the whole experience was like exploring any known world. Snaps we took at the peak was great, behind us was a cloudy view, making the photographs awesome.

Best suitable for beginners, but care is required while trekking. We had taken all safety measures before the trip and no doubt we had awesome experience.

I was looking for some beauty and adventure, far from the metro noise and Nagtibba trek was a combination of both. Enjoyed a lot with my family.

Nagtibba trek was like walking on clouds, really the beauty of the place lies among the straight mountains and curvey valleys. The people i met there were really nice to me, one of the awesome travelling experience of my life. Hope to visit those mountains soon.

It is the highest peak in the lesser Himalaya region of uttrakhand state. A beautiful place for weekend near Mussorie was resplendent. The best time to visit this place is mid Feb to June and Sep to Dec. The panorama of the Himalayan snow peaks of gharwal and Himachal offered a views of some of the famous peaks like the Bandapoonch, Swargarohini, Srikanth and Black peak. And we enjoyed the magnificent scenery. The snow was barely touching the trees and it looked so pretty. The trek would take us through tiny village, cheerful streams and rapid mountain river. The sunlight streaming through the trees in the forest would make the entire mountainside glow like pearl and the views was stunning.the food offered was yummy and delicious. There was two main route to Nagtibba peak one from Pantwari and Seemed from Devalsari village. The trek from base to top of the peak was really splendid! Overall the experience was out of world.
