    This was a great trek. My friend and I went on this trek 3 months back. It was the perfect time to go on trek in this area. The beauty of this trek is the clear and steep trek trails that are both fun as well as tough. I had a really great trek here. The trek as it is tough will leave one exhausted. A lot of warm-ups before hand helps. Also, there are experienced trekkers who accompany us, yet if you need to fully enjoy the fun aspect of the trip, it is better if you get to be strong and fit enough to handle the climate as well as the path.

    From the Nagtibba Base to Nagtibba Top, the trek was really good. The trekking routes were quite easy and can be traversed easily. Only on the first day, you might have to put in some effort to traverse the steep slopes. Second and third day are truly awesome and proves to be the reward for the first day's effort. Our group was fortunate enough to book this trek when the weather and climate were highly favourable. We got to enjoy astounding views of the Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch and several other peaks.

    We started trekking from Pantwari and reached Nagtibba base after four and half-hours’ time. The trek was a medium graded one and accompanied by some of the steep slopes. On the second day too, we had a trek of around 4 hours to the Nagtibba Top. Enjoyed some of the best views of the mountain peaks from the top. On the final day, the trek continued for almost 5 hours till we reached Tevagaon.

    I was not so sure about this trek. Also, as I did not have much time to stay in Uttarakhand and it was really easy to book this Nagtibba trek, I gave a try. Trust me, once I started trekking with other members, I was really overjoyed with the views and the experience of the Garhwal Himalayas. A must…must trek for everyone!

The way, our trek organises and guides took his care was really appreciable. Really, you would hardly find so dedicated trek organisers and guides. My heartfelt thanks to them for carrying out the trek so nicely.
