It's been a great journey for all of us and also this was our first ever trek and we all give a big thanks to Thrillophilia who provide us great service like their food, transport service, camping facility and their treck guide and the all facilities from their side is up to the mark ..and we really enjoyed there ....we all had a great memory. One suggestion for those who planned for nag tibba trek is "not an easy trek specially from nag tibba camp to nag tibba summit it's difficult ...it's really difficult ...

I was on this trek on this weekend (19-12-2020) . Nag tibba trek start from Pantwari village. This trek is in two parts Pantwari to Nagtibba base camp ?? Nag tibba base camp to Summit or nah tibba peak. We started in afternoon on day one to base camp, so it took approx 2.30-3 hour to reach to base camp. There we had snack and enjoyed sunset ????. We also had campfire and music, then we went for sleep. Next day early morning, around 3am, we started trek for Nag Tibba Summit for the sunrise ????. This was around 4 km trek, so it took us 3.30 to to reach on peak. 2km out of 4Km was snow trekk, this was freezing cold ???? and slippery trekk. After reaching to peak we witnessed the mesmerising beauty of snow ?? covered mountains ????. This is highly recommended trek to the people who enjoy trek and travel.
"Nag tibba trek is such a breather amidst this chaotic routine life that we live. it's a perfect set up having amazing people who host you and make you comfortable throughout the trek. \n\nWe started from Delhi and all the aspects regarding travel booking, cabs and pick up is managed by the Thrillophilia team in an impressive manner. They are helpful and most importantly available the whole time.\n\nThe trek begins with a moderate walk and climb till the base camp on the first day you reach. You get packed lunch from the team. And this grand welcomed by an amazing view of sunset from such pristine heights.\n\nEveryone is allotted a quechua tent either on single basis or twin sharing. The night sets up with a warm bonfire with all the people around and hot served dinner. The next day trek begins early morning so take adequate sleep. Anyone who can walk every day can do this trek. It's a good way to start and know who trek gets done. The climb is moderate and is accompanied by a guide who in my case was an amazing person. He told so many stories, his own life narratives and history behind the whole place. The summit ends up with a breath taking to view from where you can see the Sahaydaris and Himalayas out far. It's just an amazing experience altogether. \n\nThings to remember. \nCarry less things as you yourself carry it. It's one night and two days so pack light.\nCarry small packs of toiletries and cosmetics. Do carry water bottle. Torch.\nDuring winters, carry gloves, scarves and good thermals.\nPreferably wear hiking trousers and shoes (you can easily get one from decathlon store or app) , makes it comfortable hike. Carry water. \n\nPLEASE DON'T THROW PLASTICS AT THE CAMP OR DURING THE TREK."

Nag Tibba Trek is a weekend trek and can be easily accessed from nearby places as Dehradun is well connected. The first half day was journey in the traveller from Dehradun to Pantwari (Base village to start the trek). I will suggest you to take Anti Altitude sickness or anti vomiting tablets to avoid vomiting on the way. Also, it is an easy trek for seasoned trekkers but do some physical fitness training before going on this trek (or any other trek) if you want to enjoy all the moments of the trek. Less stamina and tiredness often result into leaving the trek in between and dissatisfaction. Day 1: Dehradun to Pantwari and Nag Tibba Base Camp: I went on this trek with my friend Sunil and we had really good time there. First day half of the day we spent in traveling from Dehradun to Pantwari in a Tempo Traveller which was arranged by the tour operator. After reaching Pantwari we started our trek to the base camp. It was an easy trek of 4 Kms which we covered in 3-4 hours on a leisurely pace. We had our lunch on the way. (Paratha, Aloo Sabji, Chocolate, sweet and Fruity). Liked the food. Tents at the base camp were comfortable and food was great. Try and explore the sides to take good pictures. Day 2: Base Camp to Nag Temple, Nag Tibba Smmit, down to Pantwari and back to Dehradun So this day you need stamina. Total distance trekked was around 14 Kms- Base Camp to Peak and Back- 10 Kms Base Camp to Pantwari Village- 04 Kms We started early morning at 4.15. Trek guides were Ravi Chauhan and Gambhir Chauhan. These guys did really great job managing the group. Thumbs up to both. Gambhir is a seasoned trekker and trained from the prestigious Nehru Mountaineering Institute. He is having good knowledge of trekking and the terrain. Both of our guides were very friendly. First we went to the temple. I was surprised to know that every year in Rainy Season, a festival is organized there and villagers come there to take blessings of Nag Devta (Serpent God). From temple we went to the Nag Tibba Summit. On clear days, you can see beautiful snow covered peaks including Gangotri, Kali Choti (Black Peak) and Dhauladhar range. Start as early as possible from the base camp if you don’t want to miss the view as the day passes, visibility gets poor. After spending some time at the peak we started descending and reached to the base camp in 2 hours. Trekking down in hills is a bit tricky because of the slippery slopes and pebbles but enjoyable. After having our lunch at base camp we moved down to Pantwari village and then back to Dehradun in the traveller. We came back with a beautiful memory. Thanks to Thrillophilia for your continuous support and friendly gesture. Meals were testy and stay was very comfortable. I will suggest trekker to go prepared with winter clothing and the basic things like torch etc. so that you can enjoy the trek. P.S. - Running water washrooms are not ready yet.
"Undoubtedly one of the best Winter treks with mesmerizing views in Uttarakhand. "

This was the very first trek of my life and Thrillophilia made sure to make the best of it. A traveller picked us up from Dehradun and we reached Sankri around 4 pm. Mr Bachan Rana made sure we were well instructed and equipped. Our trek guides Mukesh sir and Prakash sir were amazing and made sure no one is left behind. Not having an active physicality, I was always the last one to reach the base, but they made sure I didn't feel left out and helped me with the snow and the rocks. I also made great friends with every member of my group and by the end of the trek, we were one big family. We never would have guessed in our wildest dreams that they would be serving us gulab jamuns and pasta on our trek. They really outdid themselves while catering to our needs. The tents were already pitted and were as warm as they could be. Our group was the first to make it to the summit, watch the sunrise and then slide back. We got to see rainfall, snowfall and a gazillion of stars (a sight I can never forget) on this trek. The bonfires were a cherry on the top. I never knew how badly I needed this trek, an internet detox that really helped me catch up with myself. I would definitely rate this trek a 6/5.
It was my first experience of trekking which was really good, the transport provided was good, food was good, Guide Raj and Sachin were too good they supported and took care of all the group members nicely throughout our trek no one should be left while trekking or missed entertained our group and kept motivated, stay provided while jungle stay was also good.
"It was a very good experience. Only thing on the start they don't start from dehradun ISBT, rather they start from prince chawk, which was not informed clearly. "
